Moved, settling and Sick :(
Sunday, March 04, 2012
We survived the move on February 4th (after 2 feet of snow the day before), and are finally getting routines down and comfortable in the new home. It's incredible what stress does. Between the move, outside commitments, and not being able to find some our stuff, it feels like the last two months have been an incredible blur. Just when I thought I was going to reach outer orbit on this roller coaster we've been riding, I crashed. I caught a stomach bug last Monday and Influenza by Wednesday. Hence, it’s Sunday and I have spent my first official day off the couch since Thursday. I don’t deny I’m stubborn. I am thankful though that God smacks me in the head when I need it so I stop, I just wish I could get a point where I would listen better so it didn’t take so much.
Of course, good came out of it. We are continuing to remove and refocus our lives to manage stress better, and the new house is great for focusing ourselves. Being so sick finally kicked my metabolism. I am under 200 for the first time in ages. And, after going through the last week, I have a HUGE motivation to maintain my focus on our eating and exercising so I don’t get that sick again. Things are looking really good again, and I couldn’t be more thankful.
