I have reached saturation today.
Not only with the Fitness Challenge, but with life in general.
Between FFC, my insane job and LIFE, there hasn't been much down time at all this week. Yesterday we were at an all day family event which, while fun, was also...well...all day. Had to be social and charming and on all day.
And we're getting together with dear friends later today. More on time.
But before seeing our friends at 4:00 p.m. we need to: walk and/or run 1 mile on the track per our personal trainer to see where we are time-wise after Week 1 of the Challenge, go to the gym to get in some more exercise, plan meals for the week, grocery shop, food prep, laundry, and some work related to our adoption that has to be done by tomorrow and that will take a good chunk of the afternoon.
I'm feeling a little overwhelmed and in need of some time to just s.t.o.p.
So, of course, the thing that I most want to skip is the exercise, but I know that I cannot. That's the piece that has to stay consistent and since I took this past Wednesday off from exercise, taking today off is simply not an option. (And, of course, at the all day event yesterday I ate a lot...nothing outrageous, but I grazed throughout the day and did not track my food so god only knows how many calories I ingested...so some exercise is necessary since tomorrow is a weigh-in day...sigh.)
So, I'll guess stop my whining and bitching now and go throw on my gym clothes.
