Remember in the movie French Kiss when Meg Ryan is on the phone with her former future mother-in-law and she pitifully and pathetically says, "I will triumph!" and there in the background is the Triumphal Arch of Paris?
This is how I feel. It's pitiful and pathetic, but I will triumph!
This week's weight loss endeavor was as painful as the previous two weeks. One pound loss, so that's good, but only one day of exercise. School is taking over all of my day. I'm having a hard time falling asleep, which means I'm having a hard time waking up early enough to exercise before the kids wake up.
My solution is this: Insanity must wait. I've been wanting to finish the program so badly, but you have to commit to it. I can't commit to it right now. We'll return the disks to Josh's coworker who so graciously let me borrow them. Maybe by the time I have the time to do the workout I'll have to money to purchase it for myself. I think that's a reasonable goal.
In the meantime, instead of setting myself up to fail by having a painfully vigorous workout program, I'm going to start one of the other videos I have. It's less intimidating and therefore I shouldn't resent doing it or dread doing it or NOT do it. I'm sad I can't finish Insanity, but it's just not in the cards right now.
How'd you do?
