Prevention 28 day challenge day 6

DAY 6 
 Don't wait till you're digging out the lone Tic Tac at the bottom of your purse to figure out that you need snacks handy. Instead, carry travel size edibles that will power you through the day, such as individual hummus tubes, instant oatmeal, and apples.   —Kris Carr

Chris Freytag's rule of the day: Your weekly dose of 150 minutes of cardio does more than just help you slim down. Staying active—whether you go on a walk with a friend or head to the gym for a Zumba class—makes your feel better. So when you're thinking about skipping a workout, remember that you'll feel happier, less stressed, and have more energy if you suck it up and pull on that sports bra. Ten minutes into your workout, you'll be so glad you did.

Okay, so far, I'm not doing great with this challenge. Today was our annual visit from our horse vet, Dr. Melissa Hamilton. First I didn't sleep because I worry about whether all of the horses will cooperate and if I'll even be able to get a halter on Riley or Mouse. Thankfully, it took a little sweat but all went smoothly. Still, I've been going on little but steam and caffeine since 5AM. After Melissa left and a very unhealthy, take out lunch was eaten, I lay down and took a nap. Now, I'm heading out to the grocery store and plan to stock up on some healthy foods so we won't have to depend on the fast and unhealthy for the rest of the week. We are cutting hay so it will be a busy and tiring week. I will be burning some calories but I don't think I will be able to throw myself full tilt into this challenge until after the hay is up, my obligations to my friends and family are finally complete and I feel as if I can both breath and think again. If I'd already made these healthy choices and the exercise habits before all of this work and stress came on, I'm sure I'd have no problem continuing with them and incorporating them into my day. But for now, I feel as if I'm falling behind yet another deadline..... day 6 already? Sheesh.
