Excuses, Frustration and Boredom got the best of me this week!!

Friday, June 04, 2010

I knew last weekend was going to be hectic but I did not realize how tiring it would be. My son had a baseball tournament about 1/2 away. Sat we left the house at 7:30 am - I packed some sandwiches and fruit and went on our way but man was it HOT!! After his first game I decided he deserved to go somewhere with air to eat lunch since we had time to kill before his next game. We went to Red Lobster and I did pretty well, drank my water, got the lunch grilled shrimp skewer meal that came with broccoli and rice pilaf and I only ate 1/2 a biscuit when I would normally have at least 2 (my hubby at all of our sandwiches at the late game emoticon ). Then back to sit in the sun and drank some water but I am sure not enough. We got home a little after 6:00 pm and as I was unloading the car friends we had not seen in about 8 years happened to drive by at that exact moment and came in. Then we had to go to our friend's daughter birthday party. Did not do too bad there either 2 tacos with corn tortillas, taco meat, salsa and onions. Just a few chips with guacamole and I probably had 3 vodka-crystal lights. In bed about 10:30-11.
Sunday we were out of the house by 6:30 am-was too tired to get up and pack food so we stopped by McDonalds where I ate 2 breakfast burritos and a coffee. After his first game we ran home but instead of eating I got some laundry done before we were back out the door for his second game. At the game I had some pulled pork without the bun but was starving by the time we got home around 4:30-5 pm. As soon as we got home my best friend and next door neighbor's party was going on so there we went to that and I ate-not as bad as normal but not great either. I probably had about 4 or 5 vodka/crystal lights that night.
Monday I was ready to rest but that did not happen! We got up and cleaned our neglected home and grocery shopped, and then I found out that my hubby offered to cook all the leftover brats my friend had left which meant 3 families were coming over to eat-brats and chips...
Tuesday-too tired to wake up and run so I slept in. In the evening though I did get in about 20 minutes of rollerblading and another 20 of bike riding with my 9 year old.
Wednesday I ran for 20 minutes in the morning and planned on lifting after work but my son had a school project that ended up taking up my evening.
Yesterday I got in 1/2 hour of pilates-I am trying to mix things up. I feel like I am getting bored with running and lifting and 1 class of turbo kick but I am going to have to find something because we had to cancel our gym membership for now.
Today I got up and got dressed but started doing laundry etc instead of running and tonight my son has a game at 5:45 then tomorrow at 9 and 11 am.
Soooo....I just feel tired, bored and frustrated because I am hovering here without change! UGh!
emoticon Plus side!!!! I think my eating has been pretty darned good this week!
There is my rant ** yawn** back to work although I would rather be sleeping...
Oh...and TOM is starting the visit!

    Your weekend sounds just like mine.. My son plays club/travel baseball and tournaments are a regular weekend thing. I must say I didn't behave as well as you did eating wise.. Good for you!. June will be his last tournament weekend so it'll be weird not having my weekends booked with games. He'll be starting high school and has already started playing with them for the summer. emoticon
