1/26/13 12:29 P doesn't always wait till we think we are ready...this is good practice for dealing with change (and you did ask for the floors, right? it's not like a sudden illness or other catastrophe?)

Thanks! Yeah, I guess this is a good opportunity to adapt to change, I just don't know if I was quite ready for that step yet ;-)

Use this as an opportunity to adapt to change. Maybe try more raw food if you cannot cook, outdoor walks if you cannot be indoors to workout. Flexibility is a great tool to have in your arsenal of healthy living strategies.

Weather permitting, I would say get out of the house for a run/walk. Having workers everywhere would rive me crazy, and I'd be happy to get out of the house.

If they aren't going to be around very long, I'd say to suffer through it, and get back into your routine when the dust settles.

If they are going to be around for a while, I'd suggest setting a room aside where they aren't allowed to go. Put your equipment in there. Work out whenever you want!

Hey All -

I was doing very well with eating healthy - a lot of this was caused by me cooking myself a healthy lunch at home (I work from home 3x a week) and working out with some new fun equipment.

Well, this all came to a halt a couple of days ago. We are having our house completely refloored (new subfloor, some leveling involved, new floors) and it's taking longer than the company originally estimated.

I am VERY excited for the new floors because they are absolutely stunning, but I am finding it hard to stick to my new awesome routine because there are workers at the house all of the time. Also, it's just very exhausting to have to change up my schedule/ not be at the home office/ etc. so I feel emotionally drained.

Any tips?
