Last night I enjoyed a fantastic chicken pot pie with my son. The hubby was out helping a friend install motion detector lights. So it was just me and the little guy. We had a great dinner and it was seriously yummy~!
After my son went to bed I decided to get in a 20 minute workout as I was feeling stressed out. Even though my hubby just got home I really needed a stress relief. So I decided to do HIIt 20. Short, but intense which should help to relieve my stress.
I felt much better after I finished. But my hubby fell asleep by the time I came upstairs. hahaha
I decided to go to bed early as well since the hubby was already asleep. (I had accidently woken him up when I was having all those issues sleeping Sunday night. So we were both sleep deprived.)
This morning my alarm woke me up. I have woken up before my alarm for the past two weeks. So hearing my alarm actually freaked me out and I ended up jumping out of bed - literally- before I realized it was just my alarm. hahaha
This morning I did Fire 45 EZ Class.
I put on my weighted gloves and started. I have to admit it took about ten minutes before I felt my energy burst kick in. Been stressed about a few things lately so my mind was wandering. But after ten minutes I really got into it and really enjoyed myself.
I have a bad habit of un-nessarily stressing out over things. I try not to but I just have these days where I can't help but be stressed over finances, my weight loss plateau, etc. I also tend to worry that I am not doing things the way 'they' say I should. These so called 'experts'. For instance, I really, really like to read a books. But I never have time at home. For the past few months I have been reading while I eat my lunch at work and it's fantastic. I mean I love going to the library. It just means I am not being 'social' with my colleagues and going down to the cafeteria. I also recently 'let go' of a lot of my friends. For some reason they hit 30 (like me) and decided they wanted to party hard again. And when I say party hard - I mean hard. Like high-school/college age hard. I tried talking to them but it didn't work. So instead of making a tense situation I just distanced myself. My other girlfriends are mom's as well. But our schedules hardly match up so we rarely see each other. That doesn't matter to us as we are all understanding of kids, and working full time.
But I feel that perhaps I have forgotten to take a bit of time for me. Instead of feeling guilty about reading on my lunch break I should accept that this is 'me' time. Just like working out is. I am not doing anything wrong. Am I a social butterfly? No. But I also have a full time job, a part-time job, a 2 year old son, and a hubby. My time is limited and I am no longer going to worry if I am living my life the way 'experts' say I should be.
