Gearing up for another BLIZZARD this weekend... Comical really; because there physically is no more room for snow. Our driveway resembles a large shoe box with the end cut off. The dog has no where to go in the back yard... The road out front is down to one lane... At least the roof is clear so I don't have that to worry and we are one day closer to SPRING...
My weekly sister workouts have been suspended for the foreseeable future. The snow and negative temperatures make running outside impossible. I miss it a lot - the workout and my sisters! I'm not a fan of weekend spin so I'm not sure what I will do for exercise. It's so hard to motivate myself to go to the gym... I really hate the cold so much! I wish I had a workout partner. I walk every weekday morning with my neighbor. If it weren't for her, I would probably stay in bed. I need a similar buddy for the gym... Funny how I can be accountable and responsible to someone else, but not to myself?
I'm grocery shopping tonight so I'll try and plan out an actual list... My teen eats horribly - much like her father. My youngest is actually more thoughtful about food, though I worry as she gets older... I buy healthy options (yogurt, veggies, fruit..) which they eat and then add to it with chips and crap the DH brings home... I don't know how to manage it... We are not on the same page and it's frustrating. Alas, I will not relent. I'll make healthy meals, I'll stick to my plan and continue to provide the food and the encouragement to eat healthy to my kids. As the teen matures, I hope she will see the light. As for the DH... I am not responsible for his choices and I have to work harder to not be so affected by them.
Life is a journey and we are learning every day how to navigate it. I have to remind myself daily. I love my dog and my kids and the DH for all their quirks regardless of how much I complain.
