I really want to be back in the habit of writing in my blog far more frequently. Busy is not an excuse. We are only as busy as we think we are. The things that are our priorities, we always somehow find time for. Fear of writer’s block can keep me away from my computer sometimes, thinking either the things that I want to say are too scary or revealing, or alternatively, just too boring. Boring or juicy…what a dilemma!
For the last two weeks, my routine had been disrupted because of getting home late every night. I am sleep obsessed and do everything in my power to get 8 hours of sleep for optimal physical and mental functioning to best carry out everything I load on my plate. Thus, getting up at 5 a.m. to write and/or workout, was not always happening the last two weeks. I was so looking forward to this weekend so that I could get up early, when the world was still asleep and lounge on my porch, catch up on my inspiration, and write. The other morning I bought this mug on an impulse when I went in to get an iced coffee, thinking it would be fun to have a new mug on Saturday morning in which to have my coffee.
Somehow when I don’t plan ahead, the weekend seems to slip away from me, but when I map out the things I want to do, for my businesses, and for my relaxation, and for my fitness, I can fit in everything. I started on the porch this morning, which was nice, but as the world woke up, I got distracted by all the traffic, and moved to the sunporch in the back of my house.
One of my favorite things I like to do is look at things to inspire me to set the tone for my weekend.
So I shopped and picked out clothes for my rehearsal dinner and honeymoon…
Browsed the fitness sites and inspiring stories of weight training and clean eating….
And I planned out what we’re going to eat this week…
(I was kinda bummed to see that I gained one pound on weigh in day. However, I have made a decision to continue to follow weight watchers regardless of what happens with my weight, because I think it is the most balanced eating I have had in years. Balance and health are my goals. I’m pretty fly just how I am, afterall.)
Breakfast: Frozen Vanilla Banana Arbonne protein shake: 5 points
Snack one: Granny Smith Apple and Cheese: 2 points
Lunch: Turkey Veggie Sandwich: 6 points
Snack two: Firey Roasted Chickpeas: 3 points
Dinner: Healthy Buffalo Chicken “Pizzas” and Green Salad: 5 points
Snack 3: Edy’s Mango Real Fruit Bar
I’m headed off to the gym now. I will post later about my workout, just to ensure I go have a good one!!
