Feeling rather overwhelmed this weekend. Not so much with the weight loss/healthy eating thing, but with life in general.
1. There's a lot going on with my Brownies (the kind you join, not the kind you eat!) with the other leaders in my unit having various health/family issues. Not that it's their fault, sometimes these things happen.
2. I'm also District Commissioner (I know, I'm somewhat nuts to have agreed) and have things needing to be organized/planned/units with leader troubles.
3. Really feeling like my family expects me to do everything around the house while they can't even be bothered to clean up after themselves! I work full-time as well so I really need my husband to be involved in the housework. And let's not even get into the state of the grass, both front and back yards.
4. Strikes by Southern staff meant I had to work from home two days this last week. As a consequence I only managed to get in 2 of my 3 swims.
It's all just kind of gotten to me this weekend. Added to the fact that the fish hadn't defrosted in time to cook for dinner yesterday. It all works out to my husband suggesting getting a Chinese take out. Which we did. Of course today (having written up my food diary for yesterday and found what the calorie count came in at) I'm really thinking I should have had a dig through the fridge for leftovers or something rather than going along with the Chinese suggestion. But.... I just couldn't summon up the mental energy to do anything else besides go with the flow.
All in all, this week has been something of a bad one. I had a bad week the other week, managed to get back on track the next week, but then this last week has been something of a downward spiral culminating in the overindulgence of yesterday. Need to find a way to pull myself up and get back on track for next week. Not just for the Get Me Healthy plan, but also in feeling like I have some control over my life in general.
Sorry this is a rather maudlin post. Just really feeling it the last few days. Next time I won't write such a novel.
