So two days left in April, and I can say for one I do not know where this month has gone. I didn’t manage to get any of the things that I wanted to get done done. I didn’t restart my healthy habits. And instead of my body getting fitter, it has gotten stiffer. A direct result I assume of less exercise. Also my mood has been lower than the past few months, so I think it definitely shows how important the exercise is to me.
I did go out on the treadmill last night (my husband is trying to push me) but after 20 minutes something happened my leg and I couldn’t put weight on it. And still today I can’t put weight on it, with the pain radiating between my knee and my thigh/hip area. So I’m hoping it will be gone later today, otherwise I am going to be very slowed down this week! And I really need to be on the ball this week.
This is the countdown to My Boy’s Communion! The Communion itself is on Saturday and we are having a party here, and as of last week I decided to do something I have never done before – I am getting it catered! I realised I was so stressed and unorganised and I just wouldn’t enjoy the day, so instead of trying to cook all the food, I am getting caterers to just drop it in and that will be that. I will still have to do all the desserts, but that is not a worry. The food was.
And then on Sunday we are having a second party out in my Dad’s house, and my brother is catering that, so I have very little to do for that either. I have delegated everything to do with the Sunday party, I basically just have to turn up! And my husband did a lot of work just straightening up the garden here over the weekend for the bouncy castle to fit, so we have to get desserts made this week – and SCRUB the house!!! So a lot of work, but at least the huge stress of the food has been taken off me. The relief. Still a few bits of clothes to be picked up, but basically we are sorted!
And then after it is over, I will be back on track – I have no more excuses, the next mini goal is my birthday in June, about 6wks after the Communion. So hopefully I’ll be able to make a good dent in the weight and fitness by my birthday. I have done a lot so far, and even though I haven’t been great recently, I have to focus on how great I have done – and use that to encourage me to continue and do even better!
