I am behind on cooking (we've had way to many convenience meals lately). I am behind on working out and boy can I tell it. I've gained two pounds and I get winded walking up stairs. Not good. I miss being strong. I miss being thin, although I can barely remember the last time I was.
What happened to this chick?
It's not as if I have unrealistic expectations. I mean, I know that picture was taken before I had four kids, when I went to the gym for at least an hour a day after work and had nobody to worry about but myself. It's not like I expect to look like this:
But if I'm not careful, I might soon be blogging about the application process on The Biggest Loser. UGH! So, I've decided I'm going back to using Livestrong.com. It worked last time. It's only the first step. I've also GOT to find more time to work out again. I need to learn to take time out in the evenings to work out, but it's so hard. The girls' have dance on Mondays and Tuesdays. Wednesdays are usually free. Some Thursdays are taken up by C's band performances at ball games. Friday is usually free but honestly working out on a Friday night? I'd much rather be snuggled up on the couch with my Hubby watching a movie and having mexican food. That's actually my favorite thing to do on Friday night. Obviously, I have some work to do. Wish me luck.
So, what do y'all do to balance work and well, everything else? Any tips for staying fit and healthy?
