Still don't feel well. I keep going back and forth of feeling ok and then feeling like crap, for lack of a better word. I think I need several days in bed and a total body cleanse to take care of all of the stuff I had been eating over the last 3 weeks. In addition, my body is sore all over, especially in my neck and left shoulder. My head hurts. It almost feels like a minor case of flu. Oh please no....
No exercise today, did eat a little better today and did get some points today, although not quite at my goal.
I won't be able to do nothing if I don't feel well so off to bed I go!

I am starting to feel back to normal in the sense my house is coming back together again. Still much to unpack, but things are starting to end up where they belong. I don't want to just shove things away because my goal is to reduce my material goods. Today, I realized that I have way too many books and may have to downsize on them. I certainly don't have room for all of them right now.
I have also been able to spend some quality time with my husband. We walked down to the lake again today even though it was cold and windy. The water has such a calming influence on us.
This afternoon, I took a nap to combat my headache and possible shoulder strain. I will need to be careful that I don't cause additional damage.
Tomorrow my husband will be making his famous chili and I will be working 6 am to 5 pm. I think I will unpack a couple more boxes of books, see what I can purge and also need to put some things away in the bathroom.
BTW - 100 points sparking yesterday!

Today I went to explore my backyard...actually the lake that is less than a 10 minute walk from my new home. I went for an 80 minute walk on the beach, took lots of photos and just sat and let the negativity fall away from me while taking in the energy from the water. I absolutely made the right decision for my move. Now this walk on the beach was one heck of a workout in sand and rock, more resistance than a paved road or sidewalk.
I am still struggling w/ the eating and getting the points I need to make my goal, but I will definitely make an effort tonight.
I did more unpacking today in my kitchen and it should be done by tomorrow the latest! I also need to complete the unpacking of my office so I can decorate for fall/halloween/thanksgiving and submit my photos to my company to include in team spirit!

I am not doing well on my sparkpeople these last few days. Having my husband with me and unpacking is taking up a lot of my time, however in order to make this work. I need to start tracking again and meet my goal I set yesterday.
Today I found out that our town is working on a new recycling program and will be providing recycling cans free of charge! In addition, we found a place to take our cardboard boxes and we found out our banker is moving so we will be giving her some packing materials and boxes!
My craft/exercise room is getting there and my hallway library has its shelves back so I can start unpacking my books. All the big pieces are where they need to be, now it is getting to the next level. What do I love and want to have and what can I live without! Some of this stuff may find its way to Goodwill or Ebay!
I will definitely take a walk tomorrow after work! I need to get out, get some fresh air and explore my new neighborhood and the lake!

This is a new beginning in more ways than one! I am in a new town, free to start over! It is an exciting time.
These are my October Goals:
1) 3500 points for the month of October on Sparkpeople. This will mean that I am following all aspects of the program, which I believe helps in all areas of my life - not just health.
2) Find a new doctor in my new city.
3) Recycle all of my moving boxes! Donate as much as possible to Goodwill as I unpack.
4) Goal for home is simplify! Less clutter, less cleaning, more me time!
5) Explore the lake!
6) Explore the bike trail - weather permitting.
7) Get finances back on track and redo budget according to new needs.
8) Find someone to give me my reward massage!
9) Re-evaluate these goals at the end of the month!
