Hey everyone. How’s it going? It’s been a while but I wanted to pop in with a quick update on life as it is currently. I feel like I have a lot to say but not a lot of substance for a bunch of blog posts. So, let’s do my favorite thing – make a list!
- I am feeling overwhelmed which is making me absent minded. My Crop Walk duties are in full swing. Since this is all new to me, I do not have a system yet and that is making me anxious and forgetful. I’m forgetting to put on makeup before leaving for work. I almost forgot to put shoes on a few times before leaving the house. I forgot to take my doctor’s orders to the imaging lab for a test on Monday. I looked at the lady like she had three heads when she asked me for them too! Hahaha. I decided I need an old fashion, paper calendar to map everything out to get me through to Christmas. I printed the last of 2014 to hang on the fridge so it’s right there in my face.
- This feeling is also leaving me feel incredibly lazy. Aside from a little yoga every day, I have not been out for a run in over a week (exactly what I did not want to happen) or completed any kind of workout. I think I have a case of SAD mixing in there which is not helping. Damn you dark mornings! To try and fix this issue, I am looking for a virtual challenge or something to hold myself accountable. I tried starting a challenge last spring but I didn’t stick with it. It’s no fun alone. Does anyone know of one starting soon? Or do you have any other ideas? I prefer it to be free or donations for charity.
- I am in the process of downsizing as part of my shiny new five year plan. I am not going to map it all out for you at this time because people will probably think we are crazy and I do not want to jinx myself. However, Phase 1 is cleaning out the clutter. This means on line, in storage boxes, in my closets – everything. I am hoping to set up an Ebay store and setting up at flea markets soon to sell what I can for extra cash. Then, I can start phase two. I am very excited about this so please pray that it all happens as planned. I think once this gets underway, I will feel a little less overwhelmed or lazy. Ha! See how that works?
- I was considering putting this blog on hold for a while too. After really thinking about it, I am not ready to let it go. I am not sure where this blog is headed but it’s title is not just about eating right and staying actively healthy. Mental health is a big part of it too. If writing all this down in here helps to clear the cobwebs a little and calm me down, then we are all better off for it! And hey, if I forget something afterward, at least I have it down in writing! Haha!
I hope you all stick with me while I go through this metamorphosis. Let me know if you have any suggestions to help with accountability.
