The Search for Balance!!

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Again, I have aloud my work life take over from my healthy habits! Ugh! It is so hard to balance. Why do I feel so guilty when I take time for myself? I know how good I feel after I take the time for myself. I feel clear headed and relaxed, which is so beneficial to me. I know it makes me a better mom, wife, and teacher. Yet, I put it aside for everyone and everything else. This needs to end!
I have been trying more to be active for myself this past week than the week before. I am planning to keep at it. I have to! It is for my own well-being. And if I don't take care of myself, than who will??

    Its the only way it can be, taking care of ourselves, it doesn't work any other way. I don't know where I would be without my morning walk/exercise.

    I know I think that is our biggest problem, I feel guilty all the time, and I am retired and really do not have that much to do now, but guilt is still there.

New School Year Means Abandoning Good Habits!? I Think Not...

Monday, September 05, 2011

Well, a new school year has come which usually means for me to abandon any good eating and exercise habits that I have developed over the summer. Not this year. This year will be different. I do love my job however I am not willing to give up being healthy for it. See I tend to drop my habits for correcting, stressing over job, extra sleep, and running my kids to their activities. All of these are important but I am not willing to let them rule my health! Perfect example is today. I overate and feel aweful right now. The reason behind this is because I am thinking of starting work tomorrow and I am already stressing out about it! This is not going to continue!!
I am making my health a priority. When the day started today I felt great - I got up at 6am and exercised and felt great about it. However, the stress eating about my career end now. It cannot and will not take control!! I will!!
I am hoping by blogging I will be able to see any patterns when the school year is in progress. Awareness and education is key to success! Till next time...

    I find that I have the same issues when school starts...I stress out over homework, housework, sports schedules, and my work schedule & hubby's work schedule. To relieve the stress, I just throw my good eating and exercising habits away! Then, I end up feeling guilty and miserable! I'm going to work on that with you this school year!
