This past weekend, I went out of town for my niece’s wedding. Don’t we clean up nicely? I was stressing over holiday traffic, being alone in a hotel room with 4 little boys, eating food that I normally don’t eat, lack of sleep, and NOT GETTING A WORKOUT —–because that is just what I do. I worry….a lot! All of this worry however, doesn’t change a darn thing and I’m working on ways to combat the anxiety.
Here are some victories from my weekend:
We didn’t eat any fast food.
We did plenty of dancing at the wedding reception.
I was in bed before midnight and my kids slept through the night.
I managed to eat only protein and fruits at the hotel breakfast, which isn’t always easy!
I was able to squeeze in some mountain climbers, push ups, and lunges while the boys played basketball. Using your child for weight is just an added bonus! (click thru for video!)
There was also a basketball court at the hotel, so I planned ahead and brought some balls with us. This let my boys run off some energy and gave me a break to squeeze in a few mountain climbers and pushups. (again….added bonus with a child on your back!)
My niece looked beautiful and is headed off for a great honeymoon. Since I have no idea what presents the young married “kids” want these days, I figured a Vanilla Gift Card was the way to go. She can get whatever she/he/they want. They make great gifts for graduations and end of year teacher gifts too!
Now we are back home to reality and I am looking forward to a tough workout tomorrow morning to help me burn off the worry! Hope you had a great weekend too!
