No, not a new house, a new mindset. I am not an exerciser. Never have been. I try, now and then. I even succeed exercising for a week or two, then I get busy or bored or just plain lazy. I think I just need to move more, and build from there. We have been parking farther away. We walked to the post office instead of driving (almost exactly a mile round trip!) We parked at one gallery and walked a short loop (a half mile?) to two others. I feel better when I move more, yet I still have a mental block about exercising. So for now, I just will move more. If some of my movement happens to resemble exercising, so much the better! emoticon

My schedule is erratic at best. I work 9.5 hour (or more) days, 5 days a week (sometimes 6 days a week), starting as early as 5 a.m. and ending as late as 10 p.m. I try to get a decent amount of sleep, as I know I am a solid 8-hour-a-night person (prefer 9 hours in the dark, cold, Alaskan nights, can do with 7 or even 6 during the midnight-sun summers). It's hard to fall asleep at 8 p.m., though, even when you know you have to be back up at 4 a.m. to get ready for work. Especially when you want to spend time with your family.

I don't know if I am trying to come down with the family cold, or just tired after work, but the last 2 days I have taken "naps" that turned into multi-hour sleep fests. But, dang, sometimes an overdose of sleep just feels good! emoticon


Stressful month coming up...

Sunday, October 30, 2011

I work in retail, so November is a busy, Busy, BUSY month for us. I figured taking some time off before the holiday season hits full swing sounded good (especially as I will lose my paid time off if I don't use it before the end of the fiscal year). I am responsible for auditing our store each month. So now, instead of 4 weeks/20 days to complete my store audit, I have about 12 (-5 for the week off, -1 for district manager visit, -1 for Thanksgiving, and -1 for Black Friday). I think I can still pull it off, IF I am organized and diligent about getting everything done. It might take an extra hour or so on certain days, but I still think having an entire week off to just be away from work will be a good thing. I haven't had more than 4 days off in a row for 2 years! I'm not going anywhere for my time off, just enjoying being home, sleeping late, exercising and spending time with my sons and husband.
