As most of you know one of my brothers passed away in July. Because he was the executor of my mother's estate (she passed away Jan. 2001) and administrator of my brother's estate ( who passed away in 2010), and he did not take care of either of those, my husband and I are now in charge of three estates. In addition to that, we had an offer on the house, where they all lived (also where I grew up), which states we must close by the end of September, we have to spend every spare moment cleaning it out. To say it was full is an understatement. We have already filled one dumpster and need to get a second one.
Yesterday I shipped 19 large boxes of books and Bibles from the house to a ministry that will send them to missionaries. I will not go into all of the details but it is an overwhelming undertaking to handle all of this.
I have had little personal time, little time to exercise, little time to get to the gym or be here on SP. I did manage to see my trainer on Friday and she said she had not seen me in such pain or stiffness in years.
When trying to think of my goals for the fall challenge, they are very basic.
I want to eat healthy.
I want to exercise whenever I can.
I want to get through all of the estate work without stressing out and eating for comfort.
I want to get the house cleaned out.
I want to drink plenty of water.
I want to participate in the challenges.
I am going to do my best to keep up with my SP check ins and tracking. I am hoping come October I will have a little more time to focus on my health goals and SP activity.
For now I take one day at a time and do the best I can.
