Mamavation Monday - Just Keep Going

Just keep going, that's what I have to do. I knew this week was going to be tough and sure enough, it kicked my butt all over creation. I was stressed out because my ex's 2nd wife was leaving on Friday and I was worried about the boys. I was stressed out about a couple of other things too and that just never helps. It also didn't help that I spent about 3 days, at least, sick last week. I have no idea what I was trying to come down with but fighting it off took everything I had.

What does all this mean? It means I only worked out once. It means my water intake was mediocre at best. When I'm sick, I don't want to move and I tend to drink even less just when my body needs it most. I also probably ate more garbage at points last week because it was week 2 of my shopping which meant no fresh produce left in the house.

It also means this whole post so far has been a laundry list of excuses for not doing what I know I need to be doing. Week 1 was a downhill slope. Week 2 was an uphill slope. Maybe, this week will be a straight on slope. That's the kind of week I need to have. The one where I just keep going, not slowing down and not picking up speed. I need to regulate my schedule, my water intake and my exercise. Those are my goals for this week.

This is the part where I tell y'all though that I need help. Today starts a new schedule where I pick up my boys after school every day and take them back to their dad's house for after school snacks and homework. If we're lucky, we'll also get some fun time in there too. I have no idea how I'm going to do all of this balancing. I really need your help. If you see me online, tell me to drink. I don't care if you randomly tweet, Facebook or im it at me. In fact, go for it. If you see me, drop me a one word note that says drink or grip or something of that nature.  If you know my phone number, text me to find out how I'm doing or text me at random times to drink. This is my biggest struggle right now and it's one that I am so frustrated by.

I'm asking all of you to hold me accountable. Help me to make this a habit. Please help me help myself and my boys.

Water Intake: Average 4 glasses a day
Workout: Once
Weight Change: +2

Yep, you read that right. I put back on 2 of the 2.8 pounds that I lost last week. I know that's ok..Well, not ok, but I knew it was going to happen based on my week and I know I can get it off again. I do. I am going to lose that weight again.

I can uncerstand your frustration, but if I have learned anything form you, it is your strength to persevere. So we will both weather this bump in the road, and impress everyone in June with our beach bods! ;)

Go get a drink of water! :-)

Don't give up. There are always those roadblocks, you can push through them. Just keep in mind that you've got to take care of yourself, too.

Now, go get another drink of water and have a good week.

Have a better week. I feel ya on the roller coaster last week. My family had the plague, I spent a few days fighting their sickies off. I was not a happy camper in the process - but internalized it. This is a new week though, carpe diem.

Feel for you. Hope you make it ok through this week. I might not always be available, but feel free to tweet to me (@elenka29). I will do all I can to tweet back

Girl - I have been being really disciplined except for some lattes but I still gained back the 2 lbs I lost. SO HUGS - it is hard, I know!
