Time to get back on track

We just returned home from our family vacation weekend to Ohio where we went to King’s Island for their Halloween fest. We had a great time! In many ways this trip is the final hurrah of the season now it is time to get serious about the rest of the year.

Since Tony and I both work retail the next several weeks will be extremely busy with the holiday season. So work will keep us both on our toes!! The girls have been putting a lot of time and practice into their upcoming play, Aesop’s Fables and Christmas Surprise. Their performance is set for the first two weekends of December so on Monday, Tue and Thursday nights that is where we will be practicing for the next several weeks and shows on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We are all very much looking forward to the shows. Seth has offered to help with the production and has been named the props man and he is eager to help all the actors with this production. Seth is also playing basketball this year for his school and looking forward to another great season. The kids are busy which makes me very busy, I am busy at work and then somewhere in all of this craziness I need to take some time out for ME!!!!

I have sort of allowed myself to do like most moms and put myself in the backseat. I have not been working out at the gym lately because I do not have “time” I have so much other stuff to do. Well I have made the decision that vacation is over and I need to take some me time starting this week. Another thing I am going to do to help me “get back on track” is to journal everything I eat and try to get more protein in my diet. I guess when I say get back on track I do not have a lot to be frustrated about….my weight really has not changed, I get more compliments than ever on how great I look but I know that I am stuck….When you go from losing 5 pounds or more a week to less that 4 a month….it can be a bit frustrating so I just need to kick start myself again. Nothing major. I love to work out and it makes me feel great so it is time I take my ME time again.

I am looking forward to getting back on my path of increased health. What can you do to help your long term health? What can I do to help?? As always thanks for sticking by me and take some time for YOU today!
