Halfway Through Move It & Lose It

Well, at this halfway mark, I am surprised at how much I've struggled with keeping focused. And I do think that's it - I'm not able to FOCUS on my health eating and exercise, and it really shows. I HAVE totally kicked the soda pop habit and had only one drink of alcohol since startubg (for our anniversary). But, I've also worked a lot and am still staying busy with other commitments ... summer women's ministry program at church, LOTS of online swaps that require crafting and creativity, in addition to hosting my normal quarterly Flirty Apron Swap. Busy, busy. That in addition to tracking nutrition and exercise on SparkPeople, Tweeting every day @ShawneeH, and being a good employee, wife and mother -- well, I'm a bit tired. =)

Isn't it nice to see the results? I love it!! Hey, can you take some time out for yourself? Just to go somewhere and relax for a half hour, read something, just close your eyes and give yourself a pat on the back for doing so many things so well?

You deserve it!!

Krista said...

Glad you are happy with your results. You're doing great. Try to make sure you are taking some time for you each day. I know when I am making sure my needs are met I am better able to give of myself.
