Scattered random NOT TMI...

This weekend was a lot fun... with a little disappointment. There was a lot of trickiness going on. Let's see. It's pretty obvious that there is some resentment towards exercise and diet going on in my marriage. So... I spent this weekend NOT exercising and trying not to be overly obsessive about what I ate. I still made the best available decisions, but I tried not to get too crazy and just eat wherever we were eating. I also was able to get a lot of WALKING in! My hubby was totally willing to walk up and down streets with me... but... I didn't get any real cardio or strength training in. There was a gym at the resort we stayed at but I decided that I needed to spend this weekend doing things TOGETHER.
Now I'm home and ready to bust it out. I'm just going through a lot of "stuff" in my head. I am feeling very ALONE... on the plus side.. this gives me more focus during my workouts. On the flip side... anger/hurt all the time is hard to deal with.

I think sometimes it's ok to take a weekend off and just enjoy your relationship. All the stress of the day to day and what we need to do to prep every meal men just don't always understand. Hang in there!

And Happy Anniversary!

I'm sorry, I know how frustrated you feel about your hubby not being more supportive. I wish I could help! Just continue to be healthy and do good for your body!

Oh pookie. I totally get the feeling of alone. I know how hard it is to connect with anyone after you move, and the phone isn't the same. You are wonderful and anyone would be lucky to have you as a friend.

Glad you had a good weekend. Even if you made bad choices, I am sure 40 hours wouldn't erase you year of fantastic!!!

I think you made the best choice for your weekend. In the end a marriage is a partnership and I'm sure he needed special time with him and his honey away from your passion. It's kinda like a husband who loves his work, his wife wants the same passion for her. It's always a challenge to make both parties happy but you are capable of making both happy with some balance. good job and happy anniversary!! Your doing something right!!

I think a healthy lifestyle is a ballance. Its not easy or we would have never put on the weight in the first place. Im trying to give more time to me and my family at the same time but there are only so many hours in the day. I need a miracle but I will take what ever I can get.
