If I were to DO what would I accomplish.

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Crazy times in my house. School has started and my youngest of 6 started kinder. I was expecting a bit of free time. I have been doing the Mom thing for a while and I should know that life rarely happens how I plan it. Got that lesson years ago when I gave birth to number 1. But my coping skills and lack of take charge organization has got to stop.

I am also planning a Super Saturday (craft day) for the women at my church so that has given extra activities. Lest I sound like I have too much to do did I mention band boosters??? Yikes. Stop the world I need a break.

OK So i am going to take some time today and clean and plan. In preparation to do this I figured I would ask myself what I really want to eat. Instead of just making due with whatever is handy I will actually plan. Life is much better when I plan.

So I will sit with a pen and paper and get a food plan down.

I will also plan some weight lifting time or yoga right after I put the little guy on the bus. Maybe that will help me feel more in control. I really want to accomplish the goal of being below 199.

I tell myself this anyway. But, I have been just eating whatever for about a week. This will not get me to goal. So here I go committing again to make it happen. Inside my head there is a voice that sounds suspiciously like Captain Kirk that says "We don't think it is possible. We are therefore doing it anyway."

Continuing on into the unknown going where I have never gone before.

    I feel your pain....some time life can be overwhelming, then you fall into a rhythm. Preplan your day...it makes staying on course that much easier!

    Sounds like quite the three-ring circus. I don't know how you do it all! I hope you find balance.

    Wow and I thought I was busy with 3 boys. It took me a while to learn to say: "let me check my calendar, and I'll get back to you." To make life easier for myself I have the same Breakfasts and lunches planned for Monday through Friday. (for myself and the kids.) Mon - oatmeal and p&J Tuesday - yogurt, tuna sandwiches. etc.
    Meatless Monday, Friday was fish for dinners. The weekends I allowed for a bit more variety depending on the schedule.

    On making plans ... and for making time for yourself. You will go to new places and soon they will become familiar.

    Well, from the next evolution: (Captain Picard) Make it so Number 1!

    Mommyhood gets terrible overwhelming. The exercise can help that. I bought my first set of hand weights when my little guy (he's 21 now) almost pulled my shoulder out. Little routines can help. Love yourself through this. My youngest just drove herself off to school. Each year a new adventure!

    Yeah, that whole having a kid in kinder thing really throws things off :). You are taking charge though and that rocks!! (Bonus points for the Captain Kirk reference...I've had a secret crush on Captain Kirk since I was 6-lol)
