Allllllllllllllllllllllright, y’all! I am so totally starting to love Wednesdays! I gotta say, when I stepped on the scale this morning, I really wasn’t prepared for a whole lot. Scratch that- I was actually prepared for the needle
digital numbers to creep ever skyward- as this week was, once again, just as bad as the previous two. In fact, if asked to describe it in a modicum of words, ‘less than stellar’ is what I would probably use.
It’s not that we deliberately set out to sabotage ourselves- we seriously don’t! And it’s not even like we did a lot of eating out (we didn’t), had a lot of sweets (nope on that one too), or anything in that arena. Huh-uh, we’re still trying to hurdle the mother of all stumbling blocks right now- the fact that we are stretching ourselves in a zillion directions!
Take my average day for example- between schooling the kids, working on my blog, trying to plan meals/exercise/etc, run a household, plan a neighborhood yard sale and/or block party (not at the same time, mind you), figure out ‘what’s for dinner?’, deal with someone always hollering ‘I’m hungry!’ (even the dang cat!)… whew! I’m exhausted just typing it and it’s obvious there’s just not enough hours in the day. On top of that, my poor mama’s trying to sell her home, buy a new one, and we keep getting bamboozled every time we turn around! By the time I get my morning dose of ‘As NC Real Estate Turns’- it’s already time for lunch and I haven’t even had breakfast yet! Thank goodness she and I both have a great sense of humor and get along so well. That way we can laugh our way through most of it!
So, because of living such a busy life I usually just end up grabbing whatever is convenient- and that isn’t always the healthiest or most diet friendly choice. I try to keep easy and healthy stuff on hand, but with 4 men in the house… Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard is quite often bare! So, one of my new goals is to try and stay ahead of my shopping (and their eating) so that I’m not stuck raiding the pantry and fridge or just eating ‘whatever’ because I have to have something.
