They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. That's me. That should be my middle name.
I haven't gone to a Weight Watcher meeting since the end of September and I'm sure that has a lot to do with it. Oct 6th I had to leave work early because I had a sick husband and Oct 13th I was home for my daughter's birthday. I tried to attend a meeting close to my house on the 13th but they didn't seem to have open hours at that center.
I'm struggling with time management and making myself a priority and getting everything done. I always feel like the balls in the air out-number the hands juggling them but the thing is, that isn't going to change. Life isn't going to slow down. I just need to manage it better. I'm trying to accomplish the following:
- Work full time
- Be a mom
- Keep the house in order
- Be a wife
- Plan, shop and cook meals
- Be a friend with a small social life
- Keep my kids schedules in line
- Attend church and devote myself to daily bible study
- Maybe watch a little TV/sports
- Birthday parties for my kids and others
It's too much. There's no time for Kara. Kara Insanity. Maybe that's what I should start calling my life. Kara's Insanity. Because that's what it feels like. And unless I make some choices like:
- Eating healthy foods within my points
- Attending WW meetings
my life will always just be insane when it comes to my weight. Because after all, if I keep doing what I'm doing (which is opposite of what I SHOULD be doing) than I'm always going to get what I have - being overweight and unhealthy.
It's easy to say. Why is it so HARD for me to do?
