Too much work, not enough me

Friday, August 24, 2012

This has been a very hard string of weeks. Work has been crazy, frantic, busy beyond belief. For the last year, I've been working very hard to get promoted, but I'm starting to think "at what cost?" For the last 3 weeks, work has been my entire focus, taking time away from my family, and time away from me taking care of me. I've put in only minimal workouts this week, and I'm saddened at that. Although work is work, and I NEED to do that, I decided to take this weekend for myself and my family for some much needed family time. No work this weekend!!! I mean it!!! I just have to get through today. I'm looking forward to this weekend to refocus on what is truly important to me, my family, and my mental and physical well being. Without me being healthy, I can't take care of my family the way I need to. I guess this is all just really sinking in this week.

As for that scale, it hasn't moved this week. Not up or down, which is going to have to be good enough for this week. I stayed true to my challenge and I didn't weigh in until a week had passed. I am happy about that. But right now, I need time to refocus on priorities, and getting my mind back into taking care of myself.

    Good for you. I was just writing how I feel burnt out and don't want to work, too... I think we have to keep reminding ourselves of 2 things: Be grateful for work and make time for self/family no matter what. I guess it's just a matter of balance... hope you enjoyed yourself and hope you find time to relax this weekend, too.
