Normalcy anyone?

Is anyone else struggling with getting back to the normalcy of life now that the holidays are over? Good grief I'm still sleeping in, thinking twice about eating healthy (cake was actually on the breakfast menu this morning), and my kids are in p.j.'s until lunch time. Perhaps it's got something to do with the fact that the large windows of my house cannot hide the snow that continues to fall (and the cold air that comes with it), or maybe it's due to my head cold and the constant coughing and runny nose (ew). Either way, my body is NOT ready to return to pre-holiday status.

I know it's only technically day 2 of the new week, but I should have bounced back by now. Time to really gear up and get going. The mind has GOT to be stronger than the body. I really don't need 10 hours of sleep every night. I really do need to eat a healthy breakfast (with protein) to start my energy levels off right. Come on body, get in touch with the "finer" things of life!

What do you do when you're not feeling like doing what you're supposed to do? How do you overcome those setbacks?

I try and drink more water throughout the day. It usually helps me to not be as "hungry" for sweets. And then, eventually, it helps me to get back with exercise and eating well. Sometimes it takes awhile, but the water is a good start. And is it bad that yesterday, after showering and running errands, I came home and put on my pj pants?? Digression??
