So far the stressful part of my life has been even more prevalent of late (like, say ramped up 1000%). BUT, despite all of the stressfulness, I have kept to some of my goals for the Plan.
I have lost 3 more pounds, and I am continuing exercising in the morning, although not always as LONG as I want to. I have not been as successful in keeping up with the Wii in the evening, although I have still averaged about 2 nights a week. (In fact, tonight, I am intending to do some WiiFiting)
I am making more meals at home and bringing my lunches more to work. I am eating less portions and I am trying to eat more veggies.
I have made some progress on de-cluttering the house, but then we had Willow's Birthday and Birthday party--and more clutter was made!
As usual, in my life, it seems we take 2 steps forward and 4 steps back.
But, I am trying to focus on the good things in life and find the happiness within. And while Willow can be a rampaging toddler and Michael can oftentimes belabor a point to the point of absurdity, I am trying to keep my patience and wits in tact.
Which is interesting when your toddler throws a tantrum for over 2 hours (distractions, obstructions, comforting and logic did not work)--over chocolate (yes, I know--I guess I would too!)
Goals for May:
Get outside more, enjoy the many nature trails around us.
Work out more on the Wii in the evenings; get 40 mins a morning of working out (5 days a week)
Watch the carbs
Appreciate what I have, not the endless list I what needs to be done
Have more fun with less money
