Monday, Monday

Another Monday morning. Do you ever feel that way. My bed seemed so comfy this morning as I started to hear my hubby getting ready for work. I knew that I needed to get out of bed, but I really didn't want to.

I usually jump on the scale right away Monday morning and see if there has been any progress from the last week at the gym. I didn't do it this week. I only went to the gym one day. Life has just been getting in the way.

I might not have been physically exercising last week, but I feel like my mind was working out in overdrive. I have been pulled and stretched. I have been reflecting on the past, dreaming about the future, and surviving in the present.

It is officially 84 days until our Disney World Adventure. That was my ultimate getting healthy deadline. I know I need to get moving a little faster, the days are going by quickly.

Even though I didn't want to get out of bed this morning, I feel refreshed now. I can tell it is going to be a wonderful day. Even with my drapes pulled closed, the sun is shining in. We still have a lot of snow on the ground, but the piles are starting to shrink. I can tell that Spring is right around the corner.

The girls and I are also celebrating books this week. Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss' Birthday so we are going to party all week with reading, writing, drawing & creating. You will have to check out all the fun at Unforgettable Childhood. On the agenda today is decorating canvas bags to take with us to the library.

Oh and I bought my first ticket to a blogging conference. I am going to Relevant! I can't wait.

It is going to be a wonderful week. I am going to get myself to the gym more than once. And I am going to make some amazing memories with my girls. Nothing else really matters. . .I just can't let life get in the way.

It is going to be a wonderful week for you! I have a deadline too (end of June). You have given me the idea to track how many days until my deadline (having to wear a bridesmaid dress) to encourage me to work harder towards my goal.

I'm checking out all my fellow Relevant attendees! I really like both of your blogs! I think my kids and I are going to decorate canvas bags tomorrow (so thank you for the idea!)

WHat you are describing is normal. Burnout. It's tough to get motivated when you feel so weighed down. I've had that happen to me several times and I still do today. Some days I have to just sleep in cause its more important for me to get rest (if I can) and other days I just suck it up and go out anyway. You have to decide for you. But whatever you do, don't beat yourself up for whatever decision you make. Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it. XXOO

I love how positive and upbeat you are, Amy! I need to channel some of that myself, because this snow is really starting to get on my nerves! ;)
I hope you have a fit and fabulous week - and make it fun too!
