Happy Monday guys! How was your weekend?
I was thankful to get a little time to myself yesterday and sneak in an at home workout. I’m not going to lie, it’s been months since I’ve worked out. It’s not that I don’t want to, it just seems like our weekends have been packed and I haven’t been making it a priority. I desperately need to get back to Flywheel and was doing such a good job of making it happen before Trevor went to work but have just fallen off the wagon and not gotten back on. Do any of you go? I find it so much easier with an accountability partner so if you do, send me a message and make me book a class!
Let’s be hones, tI had also just been making excuses. I seem to always be able to get one area under control (I’ve been doing a much better job cooking and avoiding snacking) but couldn’t get motivated to sweat. It’s such a bizarre thing because I love the way I feel after I exercise I just have such a hard time getting there, especially in the winter. I finally ripped the bandaid off and pulled up a Beach Body workout on my TV and made myself get it done while Zain was taking a nap. It was painful but quick and so much easier since I wasn’t wasting time in transit to a studio and finding childcare for Zain. If you guys have any good at home workout recommendations please send them my way! Not only for me but I’ll put together a reader roundup for all of you and try to share it in the near future!
I’ve found this year’s winter to be much harder than those in the past. A lot of it has to do with my being at home with Zain and working from home I’m sure. At the dental office, I am constantly interacting with people, chatting with staff and being in a new environment. At home, I’m just trying to make sure we’re on a good nap schedule while trying to get all of my work done and keep the house together. I constantly feel like I’m on Supermarket Sweep (where did that go by the way?) when Zain goes down for nap! It’s such a different beast to work from home and recently I decided to try and get dressed everyday and make a plan a week to get out of my funk.
I always heard my full time blog friends tell me about this feeling in years past but never really understood what they meant. They would always be so eager for a weekly work date or random lunch together and I could never figure out why. I know now.
I’m very thankful that our place gets an abundance of light and has skylights everywhere because I think being in a dark place would have been even more difficult. I feel like I’m finally getting my footing and figuring out what schedule and system works for me but man I can’t wait till I can take Zain on those long walks again!
Do you guys notice a change too? How do you deal with it?
