I lost a couple of pounds this week, to minus 17 pounds, which is great. But I'm really tired, and not from working out. I'm a mom. A stay at home mom and I'm tired. I'd like to have a little more energy. I'm eating enough and sleeping enough, but based on what I've read, I'm sure I would have more energy if I could fit more cardio into the early a.m. hours. I'll need to restructure my morning activities...maybe go to Zack's story time/playgroups in my workout clothes and walk with him at the park after. That's looking like the best option right now.
Also zapping my energy is the mental conversation I've been having with myself for way too long.
I'm a classic Virgo, so I'm awesome with the planning and list making and organizing. I don't know, maybe because of my sun or moon or whatever, I'm just not that great at executing. All that planning and not executing is mentally exhausting. I always feel like I've accomplished nothing at the end of the day, although I've actually done a lot.
This week, and moving forward, I'll try to work on not planning so many projects--to stop making my ongoing To Do list way longer than it needs to be, causing myself to feel overwhelmed with the huge task list and unaccomplished at the end of the day. This week, I will focus on taking a mental rest, continuing to enjoy the gift of time I have with my son and enjoying the time I use taking care of myself. No real workout/diet goals this week. Because mental health is way more important than being skinny...this week, anyway.
