Project overload and Red Vines
Someone tell me again why I decided to take on EVERY single home project known to man? Between coughing up sawdust balls and blowing black paint out of my nose, it's been a real treat around our household these days.
I feel so bad for the Mr. You can tell by the look on his face that this has all happened pretty fast for him. We usually throw an idea out there and marinate on it for a few
You can bet your sweet bippy I told him to paint those mofos too because I just can't take any more painting projects right now. So those will be some big items off of the table which should make life a little easier.
Then you have the everyday stuff that HAS to be done like oh exercise, planning meals, etc. Sunday was a close one. Lots of projects being juggled at once and then before we knew it, it was 7pm and we were hungry so we ate then went down to do free weights about 7:30pm. Not that I ever would've skipped exercise but there are some nights when skipping is way more tempting than others and that was one of them!
I'll be honest, it was a BAD day with a few crying fits (no, Aunt Flo isn't in town) and I split the individual Red Vines I bought for movie night with the Mr as a big "eff you" to the atmospherical poo that was Sunday. I know better but in the past it would've been MUCH worse. It would've been order a large pizza, maybe cheesy garlic bread if I was feeling particularly bad, 2 cans of pop each then drown ourselves in grease until we felt like we were going to puke and not get anything else accomplished for the night including exercise. So yeah, I'll take 240 calories worth of Red Vines that are never in the house over 2000+ calories that I could have delivered to my home.
Several appointments are set up over the next week so we've got a LOT of cleaning to do. I have a doctor's appointment today, my first in 4 years which means I was about 200 lbs heavier when she saw me last. The knot in the undies about that I'm now considered a "new patient" so I have to go and fill out paperwork, get a 2 minute session confirming I have no issues then come back another time for the physical I requested. What a bite in the ass. I said "uh, so I have to pay 2 co-pays?" and the wench receptionist who obviously hadn't had her coffee yet said no that the insurance company should pick up the physical since it's a wellness visit. Whatevah. It still makes me a little nervous though because my blood pressure usually spikes WAY up when I go to the doc so I'll have to take a reading then take a pic of it before we go so they know that isn't my norm. Bleh. So my focus is going to be keeping balance for both of us as he's got a ton going on at work. Poor nugget.
How do you keep balance in your weight loss plan when everything around you is trying to suck up every minute of your day?
