I couldn't fall asleep last night. I was still awake at 3 am. And I knew I needed to get up early. I had my alarm set for 6:20, with a back up one at 6:40. I needed extra time for a shower. (I usually try to shower at night.)
At 7:35, my MIL came and woke me up. I overslept. I normally get the kids in the car no later than 7:40. (They all need to be at school at 8--and I have to get to 2 different schools.)
Fortunately, the teenager gets dressed rather quickly (once he starts moving) and I got him to school by 7:51. Mind you, I was in my pajamas. I just through my coat on over the top and prayed I didn't get into an accident. Picture an almost 300 pound woman in lime green Tinkerbell jammies exchanging insurance information with a teenage jock right in front of the high school. Better yet, DON'T picture that!
About the time I made it home, my hubby was leaving with the 2nd and 4th graders. I'm not sure if they were late or not.
I went ahead and showered and got ready to leave. But since I was running late, I didn't have time to walk before work. And on Tuesdays I don't have the car after 11:30, so I couldn't get to my "gym" (cardio room at the adult center). And the temperature dropped again, and it was too cold to walk outside. And then I had a meeting right after work. More and more reasons....
I have walked over 50 miles this month. So I am not going to beat myself up over the missed workout. I'll get back on track tomorrow. After a good night sleep tonight.
Wait! I forgot to tell you....I lost another 2 1/2 pounds! I'm down 8 1/2 pounds since January 1st! Slow and steady wins the race.
