Today is weigh-in and though I’ve been following all of my eating rules, my normal exercise routine has managed to elude me this week. Though I’ve made sure to do some lap walking in my neighborhood, to the tune of about 2.5 miles per day, this is nothing compared to my usual, high intensity, calorie burning workouts at the gym. Sometimes the business of life just gets in the way of our personal plans, and that’s okay. It doesn’t mean I’m giving up.
Being a mom often means being a source of moral support, and I’ve certainly spent a majority of my week being my eldest’s sounding board as she’s navigating a tough surgical rotation. This has meant many late nights and very tired mornings. I’m running so far behind this morning that my workout might have to be after my weigh-in. I’m not expecting a huge loss, especially after the daily addition of a fruit serving, but that’s alright. I’m certain I haven’t made any gains.
My husband and I are getting ready to go on a two-week vacation. The first week we’ll be visiting my father-in-law. (Luckily, he lives in Hilton Head–which is beautiful.) The second week we’ll be heading to our normal spot in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This will be the third year that my hubby and I have vacationed without the kids. I always have a great time when the entire family is present, but having alone time with my husband is certainly needed and appreciated.
I’ve research the gyms in both areas and am taking ample workout clothing and equipment with me. I’ll have access to a pool and my own kitchen in both of the places that we’re staying, so I know I’ll be alright. I’m also bringing my computer and camera, and have high hopes to do some blogging by the sea.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! I’ll update my weight loss results shortly! 🙂
