It’s a Snail’s Pace.. #Mamavation Monday


Yep, that’s about all I have to say about the last 2 weeks really.

Why or why is it so much harder to get back in the swing of things when I’ve already done it before?? You would think it would just be second nature, but no.

I’m really struggling to find time to workout and even go grocery shopping. Between the kids and work commitments it’s been super tough and I just have no drive to make a healthy meal when I can just pick something up or thaw out something frozen.

Probably, what saddens me the most is the fact that just a mere 5 months ago this was all second nature to me. I was going to the gym 4 times a week and planned my meals for 2 week out. Now, I look at my calendar and just feel overwhelmed. I know that once school is over my calendar will free up a bit, but then I worry about the fact that I will have kids at home to entertain.

Perhaps it’s just me throwing myself a pity party. I don’t know. There is just some huge discouragement going on in my head. I do know that I have inputed “Gym” onto my calendar for Thursday and I will be there no matter what!

  1. Awww, it’s totally okay to get overwhelmed at times. You’ll totally get caught up – it’s just one step at a time, mama. Take care and do what you gotta do!

  2. We still love you!!!

  3. It is okay to feel overwhelmed. Meal planning has been a struggle for me as well lately, trying to get back on track and spend less time at the store. Have you looked into freezer cooking? At least then the thaw and go meals are homemade.

    It’s always easier to go back to what’s comfortable… but, baby steps will get you there. It CAN be overwhelming. One day at a time and I think that scheduling Gym time for Thursday was a GREAT 1st step 🙂

    You’ve GOT THIS!

  5. Being a mother, wife, blogger, and so much more…it can very easily get overwhelming. I think planning is what keeps me some what sane. Good luck this week!!

  6. Maybe try to incorporating getting active in smaller increments since you don’t have a lot of time?? 5-10 minutes here and there … it’s at least SOMETHING until you can get life back *under* whelming lol I know it sucks to feel like everything is up in the air and you don’t have time for ANYTHING but it happens to everybody. Don’t feel bad — do what you can and take baby steps until it all gets better!

  7. You have to remember you didn’t think about your health for years and years, so that is truly what is second nature. So your mind and body will always battle with you to go back to your old habits and will fight you on getting back to healthy habits. I’ll be thinking about you this week!
