Fit Friday - Week 2

I am not a star pupil.

I have not worked out once this week. I could tell you that I have and that I'm feeling great, but that would be a lie. I have had every intention to get up and take the time to exercise, but I haven't. The truth is, I am realizing that there is a lot more in my life that I need to change than just some dietary issues and fitting in thirty minutes of workout a few times a week.

One of the main things that is impeding my progress is this lack of sleep that I'm experiencing. It is really hard to drag my ass out of bed, make breakfast for Lorelei, make her lunch, get her dressed and do all of the same for myself when all I want to do is sit down at the kitchen table and cry into my lukewarm coffee.There are other things I could tell you, but they would all be excuses... mainly I AM TIRED.

So! What to do now? Well, there are a couple of things that I see doing right away.

1) Make Lorelei's lunch the night before.
B) Tell the child that she is grown enough to dress herself, lay out her clothes, and hope for the best.
And then) Stop my whining.

Oh yeah. And I'm that dork that doesn't read all of the materials before I start a project (sorry dad). So, I am fairly certain that I will be more motivated to dress my overweight derriere in workout clothes and get moving if I actually read the booklet that came with my workout videos and start cooking from the suggested recipes. I'm actually really looking forward to that!!

I expect, or at least I hope, that I am not the only person that has ever been excited to start a workout program and fell flat in the first weeks. But I am determined to pick myself up and make the best of the next nineteen weeks.

19 weeks to lose 35 pounds!!  
That's 1.842 pounds a week. 
(that's a lot)

Will someone please pass the celery.

Mom's Tip
I'm having to learn a very difficult lesson; How to give myself a break. I need to remember the story of the tortoise and the hare. Slow and steady wins the race.


Thank you again to Sara Dean at Fit Healthy Moms for your support!! I'll do better... I promise.
