Getting my run on.

When you tell yourself you’re worth it over and over again…you eventually believe it!  I know!  And I am worth it.  And I do like being selfish sometimes and taking time out for myself.  I still have to be a good wife and mother though too.  Balance.  It really all comes down to balance, doesn’t it?  How to balance the needs of yourself with those of your spouse and children?  I think my internal pendulum was swinging a little too far over to the others side in the past.  I’m trying to keep that pendulum balanced now.  And so far I think I’m doing OK.  I missed my first workout yesterday.  I worked out on Saturday (ow, my shoulders!) but missed yesterday.  I usually work out in the evenings after the kids are in bed but Levi’s nap schedule got all messed up yesterday which resulted in him being awake until 10pm.  I spent my time with him instead of working out.  And then when he went to sleep I did too.  He needed that though and I think so did I (stupid cold!).  My eating has been on track though and this morning the scale read 162.2.  Things seem to be progressing nicely.  And not only am I noticing the changes on the scale but my clothes are fitting better too.  I know I’ve only lost a couple pounds, but those pounds seem to all be in my waist.  I’ll take it!

Monday’s are a household chores night (update budget, pay bills, etc.) but tomorrow night I’ll be back down in the basement working out again.  I love riding the momentum wave.  I guess the key is to figure out how to keep this wave going for as long as possible!
