What I'm Working on Part Deux

{I logged on to write a post for the first time in almost a year, and I found this in my queue from March, 26 2012. I loved my attitude of not being too hard on myself, and am vowing to bring it back, so as a reminder to myself, I am posting it anyway...}


The last time we spoke I wrote about the things that I needed to work on in order to lose the extra weight I've been carrying around for the last few years. I have been working on them, and I was successful for a few weeks. But progress has been at a standstill for the last two weeks.


Truth be told, I was doing really well on eating breakfast, eating every couple of hours, getting sleep and drinking water. But (heeere come the excuses...), my work schedule completely changed. I was working 7a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at the rehab, and then 5 p.m. - 11 p.m. (sometimes 12 a.m. like last night) at the restaurant. I was leaving my house at 6:15 a.m., and not getting home until midnight(-ish) every night! It was exhausting! I had absolutely no time to add in exercise like I had hoped, and had no time to cook. I somehow managed to pull together salads, veggies with dip, fruit, and snacks for my morning shifts, was eating dinner when I got to the restaurant, and still making my protein smoothie for breakfast. So while my eating wasn't horrible, I was sleep deprived (averaging 4 hours per night), not drinking nearly enough water, and obviously not working out.

And my schedule is switching every week. So this past week I have worked mostly night shifts, and overnights. Which screw with my routine, and mood like no other. But alas, spring break at the restaurant is coming to a close in 2 weeks and I can drop down to working 2 days per week (instead of 5), and I should have a set schedule at the rehab starting in May (fingers crossed), so my schedule should be more predictable with a two-week rotation.


Right now, I am just trying to enjoy what I have got going on. I need to just go with it instead of focusing on everything I am doing wrong, and the fact that the scale hasn't moved in my favor in 2 weeks.


I also need not be so hard on myself for not blogging regularly. I thrive on routine, and I just don't have one, so something has got to give. For now it's this space. Because as much as I need the outlet, I also need sleep. Working 70-75 hours per week plus trying to meal plan/cook for myself and Boomer, sleep, do laundry, brush my hair, clean house, and put one foot in front of the other is enough for now.


I need to not be so hard on myself. It isn't all or nothing, my best is enough. And when I am resting on my laurels, I will know. But right now? I know I am not resting on my laurels. I am doing what I can, when I can. And that is enough.


This week I am working/busy at the beginning of the week, and then I am out of town for a girls weekend Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday. I can't remember the last time I had two days off in a row, much less and entire weekend! I am beyond excited! The last several years we've done the Lutsen thing. But, do to life and relationship changes amongst our group O' friends, we elected to do a girls weekend, in a fabulous sweet, in a hotel, in the city! Believe me, there will be plenty of drunken debauchery, only better!! It is going to be an EPIC weekend!!

  1. Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them, that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. See the link below for more info.
