It's house moving day (& I went running)

Hi spark friends!
Many of you have seen my little status updates from mid Jan.
I am writing this today to remind myself and to maybe inspire fellow sparkers too.
My family of three plus dog & cat are planning to mive interstate to my island home within a year. We currently rent a lovely house opposite our 7yo's school and we are very active school parents.
In mid December, x2 days before our five week working holiday in my home state, we received a notice to vacate, the owners are moving in!
We could not begin looking until our return. We have been searching and applying for homes within walking distance of school for over five weeks.
It sounds stressful, it is stressful.
We have x1 art studio, x 1 audio studio and a massive workshop on top of the usual family house to pack.
We have secured a lease but can't move in until a few weeks after we have to be out! We are staying with my partners mum for those few weeks and storing our household goods in a storage place.
So my point is this: from the time I got the news of having to leave until today, I have been proactive in taking extreme care of my family's health. I have been vigorous with sleep, with food and with routines.
My 7 yo has not missed any martial arts classes, I have attended every yoga class.
I have not even missed 1 of the x3 runs I do every week.
I feel fantastic, somewhat tired, but very alive and capable of making efficient decisions in this tricky week of packing, cleaning, moving.
I am proud of myself for taking care of myself and my family and pets so well!

    This is very inspiring! I "know" that exercise is important and helps with stress. It is just hard to actually make it a priority and "do" it.
