Hello Again!

Ok, so I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, but I have totally fallen off the bandwagon & been run over SEVERAL times. I knew going back to work would serve as a real challenge for me and it has. I have slowly but surely, gotten out of the habit of going to the rec center regularly and have begun eating crap constantly. I haven't weighed myself in a week or two, but the last time I weighed, I hadn't gained more than a pound of so, but like I said, that's been a week or two & I'm sure it is up now. I've let life get in the way of my goals. It started with a little stomach bug, then came my sprained ankle, then the girls got strep & the conclusion to my chaos came with Alyssa falling off a swingset & breaking her arm.

The good news is that I'm on Spring Break for this week & next. I had hoped to attend my normal morning Zumba classes during the break, but this week is a no go because of the arm. She broke it high enough that they can't cast & and she is in a sling. The doctor recommended that we not have her in preschool or other places around lots of kids for at least another week, since they tend to run around & act crazy and the chance of her causing re-injury is pretty high. Hopefully, we will get the A-OK next week & all will not be lost. In the mean time, I am going to try to buckle down and get to class tonight & find some time to do something at home if I have to. I have 9 weeks left of the position when we return from break and I'm counting down every day. Besides leaving my children, falling into this habit of all work and no time for myself (and exercise) was one of the things that I was most fearful of when I took the position. Oh well, lesson learned - and as they say, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again! Hope you all have a great March!
