Hubs and I went on our first vacation since our honeymoon in 2007, in early September. It was a glorious work-free week in the Outer Banks. I loved every non-gym-workout day of it.

Work Stress

When I came back from said vacation, my work world had erupted. Or at least it feels that way. And it hasn’t stopped!



Busy Social Calendar

Hubs and I are normally pretty much homebodies, but lately…vacation, get-togethers with friends, hubs white-water rafting, hubs birthday, best friend’s wedding, and more! We’ve been on the run for 8 weeks now! This upcoming weekend is our last event until Thanksgiving…thank goodness! 🙂



Junk Food

Yeah. Food? Not so good. More junk, and WAY more sugar than I should. The scale (and my jeans) are showing it. Cake, ice cream, more cake, apple dumplings, truffles…oy vey.

(Okay, maybe not as bad as this…but you get the idea!)



And finally….

Bad Workouts

I am seriously in a workout rut. I find myself not making time for my cardio sessions, and continuing with my weights (but I’m stuck here too), but I’m not stretching like I should, or doing enough yoga, which means my left hip is acting up…even though I’m not running.

Something has to change. I’m not sure what to do. I always feel like there isn’t enough time to do them all, but I worry that skipping one of them will result in problems (like missing the yoga, and now my hamstrings are approximately the length of a paperclip).

My cardio endurance is down, and I feel like crap, mentally and physically. I’ve been in the hamster wheel too long, and need to make more of a conscious effort to up the ante and get back into the game.



Susan and Janetha have both posted about goals/goal setting recently…and I think it’s what I need. Yes, we’re 4ish days into the month, but I’m still going to put some goals out there for October.

Stay tuned!
