Bump It Up

Monday, October 8, 2012

I'm still here and kicking!

It's been a long, crazy week since I last posted. The mom's group I loved shut down at the end of last week. As a result, I am now part of a great group of women that started a new group, MomMe. I'm super excited to be working on this. It's been a busy and stressful undertaking, but it's good stress! That said, I've struggled to find time to sit down at the computer and post here.

I am still focused on my health goals but just got a bit off track with the extra responsibility added on. I'm struggled heavily with my water intake. I'm back to not drinking enough, which scares me because of my kidney issues a few months back. I hate to admit, that Dr Pepper is starting to taste good again. I was still ordering soda out of habit and had a few too many, because now they don't taste like crap anymore. Time to go on strike and ask my friends to tell me NO if I have a weak moment.

I've been getting up with Robert each morning...5 am, say WHAT!? I've found that doing so gives me some alone time before Meghan wakes up and helps me to get to bed at an earlier time each night. I don't enjoy the getting out of bed part, but once I have a cup of coffee or another warm beverage in me, I'm fine. I want to start using my exercise bike in the morning as well. I'm confident that getting up earlier and starting my day with exercise will help my energy level throughout the day.

Here are my goals for the week:

More water
Stick to my weekly dinner menu
Schedule exercise

What are your goals? What areas do you feel you need to work hard on?
