So I’ve decided once again that I need to make time for taking care of ME. Monday morning on the way home from school drop-off I stopped in at the gym. I got a tour and a free visit. I decided to start with one months membership. I wasn’t super prepared to work out that day. I didn’t have my iPod, a towel or an ample water supply. I still decided to stick around and ended up doing 35 mins on the treadmill.
Tuesday, D decided to go with me. We started on the treadmills and them moved to the cross trainer and steppers. After that we headed over to the upper body section. We didn’t do to much that day as she had to be out by 9am. Ended up with about 30 mins of cardio and around 20 mins of machines.
Wednesday I kept one of the kids at home due to cough. No workout for me.
Thursday I did 15 mins cardio to start, upper body weight machines and then another 30 mins of cardio to finish.
No school Friday meant no gym for me. I’m not quite comfortably leaving the kids home alone for that long. Soon though.
Saturday we ended up going out of town for the day.
I woke up this morning and decided that I needed to hit the gym. DH was not very pleased by the sound of it. Acted like I was inconveniencing him or something that he was going to have to parent his kids for an hour or so. Hello. Turn on a cartoon, go eat breakfast, shave and shower and I will be home before you are ready to do anything. Sure enough I was home before he was even done shaving. He still had an attitude though and it pisses me off. He should be supportive of me and I don’t feel like he is.
I guess though that I need to stop looking to him for support in my weight loss goals. If I don’t expect support I won’t be disappointed will I?
This weeks goal is to continue to watch what I am eating and get in even more fruits and veggies. I know food is such an important part of weight loss. I do know weighing or measuring stuff is more accurate but I don’t want to live my life doing that. It sounds selfish and lazy I know. But I also know that for the most part when I exercise I have a tendency to eat better. As long as I stay away from rewarding myself for going to the gym like I did the last time I was a member. The one difference to that this time is the fact that I am making time first thing in the morning. The only thing the drive thru’s are serving is breakfast that gives me incredible heartburn for the remainder of the day. I think this is going to make a big difference. And when I go out with C she is usually pretty careful to order a salad and veggies and to watch portions. Dinner take out will be a problem but I will work it in somehow.
Off to go prep dinner and chop veggies for snacks and meals.
