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.
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! 🙂
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!)
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.
