Day 17: Take It Easy


This has been a week of successes and struggles in my mind. I have continued on, keeping up at the gym every day, plus working my summer job at a home improvement store. (In no way does that statement mean I think of myself as Wonder Woman!) But it was yesterday that really kicked my butt and had me looking at my week and putting it in perspective.

I live in Texas, the Dallas /Ft. Worth area and right now it feels like Satan’s armpit with the heat, and humidity. I have been working my body harder than it is accustomed to while I struggle to find the fit and healthy me. Yesterday I went to the gym early, did my time on the treadmill, working up a good sweat. Came home, showered, cooled, ate, and headed off to work. My metabolism was still cranked up when I walked into the building, and I was asked to cover the garden center, outdoors. No problem. Until I started sweating profusely.

I realized that while I am mostly proud of how hard I am working, I still have room for improvement on the “work smarter” part. Today there is no pre-work gym. I have a 9 hour shift to work through, and then, afterward, I can head to the gym tonight.

This weekend will be a slow down for me, busy with my family and my daughters birthday. I am going to pay attention to my food (down .4 pounds this morning), no overboard, excessive eating. I will try to fit the gym in once or twice this weekend, but I also know that I need to balance out my life if I want to keep myself.

Until my next post, stay happy, stay healthy, and love yourself!

  1. Always smart to plan ahead and listen to your body. You are allowed to have a bite of cake. Just use my mantra “it looks better than it tastes”! Have a great weekend!
