A Couple of Rough Weeks Behind Me

For the past two weeks I have struggled with something that many other working parents experience; finding enough time to get everything in. The first week it was a little less about time and more a challenge with my eating. Week two brought a summit for work, which included extremely long days and buffets filled with desserts, a case of the hormones and stress eating to boot, and a recital at one of my kids schools. I must admit that I ended the week extremely exhausted and without motivation to complete most of my workouts for the week, and forget about the diet.
Yesterday I weighed in and found that a week like that can easily lead to weight gain, in fact I gained back one of the 1.4 pounds that I lost. Determined to not allow the challenges from the last couple of weeks, I’ve gotten back on track. I’m not perfect in this whole race, but I will get this done. It is still possible for me to reach my small goal of losing 5 pounds prior to January 31 and I have full faith that I can do it.
