When life gets in the way?

Monday, November 07, 2011

I put this on the message board but thought I'd blog it too. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things again after being away for a few months. How do you stay on track when life gets in the way? I think there are many of us who are caught in financial struggles, working longer hours, family drama, and illness. I always tend to put all that stuff first and myself later. I feel like I can't help it, I mean when you have to pay your bills and do for your children what can you do? My days are longer now with extra work hours and I'm done around 8:00-9:00pm. I don't feel like exercising then that's for sure. I get to bed around 12:00 and up at 6:30. I'm not a morning person so getting up at 5:30 to exercise isn't going to happen. In a rush the healthy choices fall by the waste side. With all the life stresses the night time bingeing is back with a vengeance.

    I know alot of time we do not feel like we can take time for ourselves. I also know that we have to.

    My husband had MS - controlled but that can change at any time. My daughter is 13 with all of the social activities that intails.

    If I do not take care of myself I will not be able to keep up and that will so alot of damage

    I have found that most of the time I need to take 10 minute breaks and do excersice than. The are quick boost my enegry level and keep me focused.

    Eating taks more planning but I found it well worth it. On my days off I will prepare my snacks (Of I buy precut veggiex - move expensive but time saving)

    If you do not put yourself first in somethings you will get left behind and resent the time you spent on others. It will make you feel better to know that you are able to be there when others need you not asleep on the couch
