Yeah, may as well just change the title to "Exercise is a challenge" lol. Sigh. I have been deep in the throes of planning our next school year and have let everything else go by the wayside. Yep, everything, including exercise. I think I should say especially exercise, seeing as how I did actually manage to throw a load of laundry in and run a few dishes under some water every now and again. But did I ever take 30 minutes and slip in a Leslie dvd? No. Sigh.
So answer me this. Why do you lose physical stamina so quickly? I mean it's been two weeks since I exercised. I popped in a dvd yesterday morning and did a measly 1 mile walk. And it was a workout! I mean my arms hurt after only lifting them by themselves, no weights or anything. What's up with that? I got mad that I only slacked off for a few weeks and seem to have lost any and all stamina or fitness I acquired in the past months of working out. Phooey. (Oh come on spell checker! You redline dvd but not phooey?!? And redline is an acceptable word? I guess my grasp of vocabulary is better than I thought.)
Anywho, we have one week before we start school again. I am spending this week getting everyone, including me, back on a schedule. Do you know how hard that is when it doesn't get dark here until, like, 9pm? So it's back to getting up earlier than the kids (although this summer 9am has been getting up earlier than the kids lol,) exercising, and starting my day off the right way. Why doesn't the right way feel as good as the sleep-in-and-read-books-all-day way?
