no progress

I am not making progress... Well, at least not visible. I HAVE been watching portions and trying to eat more nutritiously. It is very slow going. I could easily make excuses but really, what's the point of that? Truth is, my self-control and motivation are extremely lacking. Yes, I have been in a hotel for half of the past two weeks (staying with Husby while he works out of town) and eating snacks all day and going out for dinner isn't exactly conducive to weight control. My wish right now would be for a babysitter a few times a week so I could go work out. Ideally, a neighbor. But alas, I don't know any of them and they all seem kinda kooky. (the joys of apartment dwelling!) I keep wishing for the humidity to go away so I could enjoy being outside, and for the heat warnings to be over so I don't have to worry about Caitlyn getting overheated. What will it take for me to get control of this part of my life?

I'm being a bit dramatic...

gotta get away

It's a very gray day and I'm sitting in a hotel room, watching tv and surfing the net. Outside the window (which overlooks a beautiful pool area) rain has been falling intermittently all morning long. Baby Girl is sleeping in her pack'n'play, and Husby is at the job site. His company's current project is nearing completion and there are workers on site 7 days a week. Thus, a superintendent must be there to oversee, and this weekend is my man's turn. Lucky for us, Baby and I were able to come visit and spend the weekend with him. Almost a mini-vaca... minus the part where Husby has to be at work. But being together every evening is incredibly nice, and something I will never take for granted again!

So far my vows to exercise regularly have resulted in epic failure. A day or two a week I manage to convince myself to get out and DO something active... Other than that, phooey. I don't know what my problem is... Besides the unbearably hot and humid weather. I keep telling myself that if I get a jogging stroller I'll start running and stick with it. Ummm... yeah... when has any other resolution like that worked? Or there's the T-tapp workout that looks extremely intriguing and requires nothing more than empty floor space. Maybe I need to arrange childcare for Caitlyn a few evenings a week and then I can at least go run on the elliptical. Gotta do SOMETHING!
