Busy day!

I feel like I've been going non-stop all day! Between errands, meal preparation, exercise, more meal preparation, and more exercise, I've had a very full day. I was so tempted to skip the gym today, but I already felt guilty for putting it off until today so I made myself do it anyway. Even with how busy I was, I'm glad I took the time to work out anyway. Based on how I'm feeling right now, I would say my lower back muscles were worked the hardest today. That would be from a combination of the cardio, weight lifting, running errands, and food preparation, I do believe. Here's tonight's workout:
I am hosting a birthday dinner for my nephew tomorrow, and I spent this evening putting together a lasagna and baking a birthday cake. It took me longer to prepare that lasagna than ever before because I was measuring every single ingredient and carefully portioning them between layers. Normally I would pretty much just throw things together, but I'm still counting calories so I needed to know exactly what went into it. Eating a balanced, healthy diet is a lot of work, but it is definitely worth it to me to stick to it.

Question of the day: When life gets really busy, how do you make sure you're still getting the exercise you need?


  1. I struggle with this! When its been a busy day I'm even more unmotivated to exercise. I have a problem trying to get myself to exercise especially after a busy day with school, meetings, and extracurricular activities.

    But I notice it helps if I continuously throughout the day say a loud (with people around) that I'm going to workout. It's a way that allows me to hold myself accountable because I told people I would workout.

  2. I HAVE to have a buddy if I am going to be consistent.

  3. I don't even exercise when I'm not busy. I think you're awesome. :D
