Where is that rut I'm looking for
Sunday, October 02, 2011
Well, it looks like it could be a rough fall! Since my daughter and family are moving back to this area they will be spending a lot of time with us as they house hunt. Great to have the grandkids around but after having them this weekend I'm really tired. My hubby was out of town and daughter and hubby were out house hunting with realtor. Those kids kept me hopping!!
Not sure where I am with weight. I know I want to lose some but can't seem to stay motivated to work out. Eating is OK but could be better. I know I would feel better and have more energy for those grandkids if I was in better shape.
I've just been feeling so swamped for the past couple of months. The summer was crazy busy. Just had the kitchen redecorated so that's been a lot of prep and cleanup work (not done yet!). Started supervising an intern which is going to take more time than usual (for a variety of reasons). On top of that, daughter and family in and out. Just a lot for me to deal with--as I mentioned in a previous blog; I like my regular routine (aka "rut"). My sleep pattern has been crazy and so many days I wake up already tired.
I really want to feel better (or so I say!) but can't get any momentum on the exercise front. Why? What's wrong with me?
I read blogs by Sparkers saying "I was never an athlete and now I run marathons. I love it. I never knew I was an athlete....I hated to exercise....You can do it, too........You will find your inner athlete.......etc, etc." My point being I don't believe I have a hidden inner athlete. I REALLY have never been that active--I'm a reader and a lounger. I am not like those people....they found their inner athlete but I KNOW I don't have one. AARRGGGHHHH!! I get very frustrated with myself and lack of motivation. Why do I do this to myself??
