Checking in (170.8)

I'm fine, doing OK, but stupidly busy. 

I'm actually a bit overwhelmed by everything I need to get done in the next two weeks -- work obligations, mostly, but also a church project and busy weekends.  Our calendar is already filling up through the end of the year.  Crazy!

Everything kind of hit me last night and I had a cookie binge (7 oreos and 2 chips ahoys).  Thank you, sugar and fat, for the weight uptick this morning. 

I haven't exercised all week.  I did great for two weeks, now this week--nada.  Tomorrow I've put on my calendar (and Mark's) that I'm meeting a group of girls for coffee at 7:30 a.m, then I am going to a Group Power (free weights) class at 10 a.m.  I'm planning to hit the treadmill or the pavement in between for some cardio.  I cannot wait.  I need the restorative power of both the Adult Intelligent Female IRL conversation and the physical activity.

If I'm sparsely present in the next couple of weeks, it's not because I've given up on the healthy life or I don't care about my blog or yours.  It's because I'm working really hard to keep my head above water.  Hopefully I'll have more time than I think and will be on here as often as possible, but I'm planning for the worst and hoping for the best.

I hope you are enjoying the almost-fall weather.  I certainly am, even if it's just gazing out the window occasionally and not sweating my butt off walking from the car to the indoors.

I am trying to look at those instant "ups" on the scale that I get right after eating badly as a gift: I see the effects of my "bad" right away and (hopefully) get a grip before it gets worse. ;-)

It's hard to be vigilant with food and exercise when your life is busy. I know! I put my exercise on our calendar. Even though I've been on the same schedule for several months now (yoga on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Saturday afternoons) so both DB and I know when I go, it helps me (us?) to have it on there -- it's a real appointment and I don't schedule over it or blow it off. :-)

What a good point Helen makes. 3 alarm siren on the scale. At least you got on the scale and knew it right away. I had forgotten about putting exercise on my husband's calendar. My kids are aware of my schedule too. I get there, hell or high water.
