Currently… Growth = overwhelmed, lazy and losing my mind!

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!

Currently…

  • 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.

This pretty much sums up the thoughts that started all this.

  1. I’ve been feeling SAD this week as well. This is the time of the year where I question everything, and it all seems too much. You’ll get through it! Be easy on yourself, don’t force anything. If you need to be lazy for a bit, then be lazy! Sometimes our bodies need that. It will get better!!
    Good luck on your 5-year plan!
