As the weeks race by, I find that I have taken on too much for myself. I have always been one of those people who is overly busy....too many projects, too many hobbies, too many commitments. Through the years I have learned to say no, cut back and be more organized. But here I am on Sunday night, just like every other Sunday night, racing to get things finished before my busy work week starts.
As far as my health goes, I am trying to take small steps, but it is still a lot to handle. We used to eat out all of the time, now I am planning meals, shopping and cooking. I am trying to eat thoughtfully, slowing, chewing and savoring my meals. I am eating six or more tiny meals each day, which entails even more planning. I am also trying to get some physical activity every day. I have a very sedentary job (I am not kidding when I say I could sit there for ten hours straight and not get up) so I am trying to get up and move and I am walking every day at lunch. I am also trying to work in at least a tiny bit of strength training each week. I want to do some yoga but I can't see that happening just yet. I am also trying to get to bed much earlier.
But like I said, I was already pretty stretched and here it is, Sunday night. I am way behind on my weekend chores because I was already behind from last weekend, and the weekend before! I must catch up and so this weekend I didn't go for any walks. I haven't had time to work on my hobbies lately and I am trying desperately to catch up. My husband helps a lot but he is super busy too.
I am committed to my health and I am going to hang with it. But I am going to have to think of more ways to stream-line my schedule.
