Hometown Hotel

I just returned home from a three-day, two-night stay in beautiful Hometown, Oklahoma, where my mom lives. DH was on a business trip to Canada.

I love going to mom's but it is so hard to stay on my eating plan there. I get in a vacation mode where I give myself license to eat anything in sight. And the boys are into everything (one is 11 months and walking and the other is 2.5 and running, climbing, swinging, etc.) It is wonderful having mom to help me with them but it is still stressful enough to drive me to her cookie jar, which, I might add, is one of those clear ones with the metal lid. Ya know, come to think of it, I bought her that blasted thing a few years ago for Christmas!

No exercise today. I'm really having trouble in the motivation department where that's concerned. My little one is up at 6 a.m. every morning. I got a million excuses...

No Excuses!!! Just Do It!!

Man, I said to myself yesterday morning, "You know you're serious about your diet when you wake up on a Saturday morning after a bad night, your husband is shepherding the boys out of the room to make them pancakes and let you sleep some more.... And instead of sleeping you realize that if you jump up right then you can get your workout in before leaving for your hair appointment." Okay, so I talk to myself a lot. But that was exactly what I did on Saturday. The only excuses are illness, major injury, and Sunday.

So there!

This is Leigh Ann from OWOA. Hang in there. I feel the same way when I am at my parents without Hubby. I start realizing what a relaxing time he is having without the kids, eating what he want and sleeping late and I get just plain jealous. So what do I do, I eat. It is so hard especially when they are driving you crazy, but you can do it. Drink a huge glass of water with lime, and then you will feel too stuffed for cookies.
