AAARG it's Christmas!
YES! I LOVE CHRISTMAS! i love christmas trees, lights, stockings, holly, carolers, nativity scenes, cookies(duh!), everything about christmas...except the LACK of extra hours in the day! i have been doing so good, so great with my NEW ME, new weight-loss, new exercise program. make that HAD been doing do great. and now i am bombarded with too many things to accomplish in a day to get to my ME time. i am not saying i want christmas to go away. i just want santa to bring me some extra time...slip it silently into my stocking (which usually is filled on christmas eve with just candy and nuts). i wish i could keep working out 3 days a week. i had hoped that december would not only bring me christmas joy but also 5 DAYS OF WORKOUTS PER WEEK, weight loss AND more muscle tone.
how many of us work really hard at making sure our families enjoy the christmas holiday and have the perfect book of memories at the end of it all? sacrificing ourselves along the way. i don't think it's WRONG to do so...but, how can we DO IT ALL?
so, today i'm at the gym thinking about all the things i could be getting done at my house. and as my ipod is shuffling through my music, "be yourself" by audioslave comes on while i'm doing my situps and i start to think "to be yourself is all that you can do..." and i resolved to just be myself. it is what it is.
i just wish santa could give me a little time to workout EVERY DAY this month--that's what i want for christmas. or, i'd settle for world peace.
