Today - Take care of me and Stay Grounded
Sunday, March 17, 2013
Hubby's at work today. I'm home alone with the dogs. It's all okay. I wish Hubby wasn't working, but he has to do what he has to do.
Today I'm going to take care of me. I didn't sleep well last night. Not sure why. Just didn't. I've been pushing hubby away again. I don't want to do that, but I just don't have it in me right now. I need to find a balance, or this could grow into a major problem. Hubby's "drive" is so high, and I've just got absolutely no interest lately. I know it's because of everything I've been going through. He doesn't make me feel bad about it, but I do. I worry. I worry that this could drive us apart. I have talked to Hubby about it. He tells me there's nothing to worry about, but... I've been on the other side of this in the past. It hurts. He's so good to me. The last thing I want to do is hurt him.
Anyhow, I need to stop worrying and take care of me today.
I have all those clothes to go through.
We also picked up some pecans yesterday. I have everything I need to do some baking. Hubby sure likes the gluten free, sugar free brownies. I'm debating making some today for him.
I am thinking I might do a couple of loads of laundry today too. It'd be nice to get all my laundry from the trip taken care of before it becomes overwhelming. I actually still have one suitcase to unpack still.
If I have some time, maybe I should make some plans for this week too. What am I going to eat. What am I going to do for activity. I want to go to the gym and incorporate strength training in my routine, but I HATE crowds. The small gym around here is always so crowded. I will need to find a way to deal with crowds in order to make this work. I can't go before work - it doesn't open until after I leave for work. If I come home for supper first, I won't go. Right after work is the best time motivationally wise.
I need to find a way to do this. I need access to the aerobics studio for dance practice.
This is getting me too frustrated right now. I'm going to put this away for a while.
Time for breakfast. I could make up a batch of Quinoa - cook enough to re-heat some every day this week. Take it to work, and microwave it. Add dried berries, and a little soy or almond milk. Hmm. I could do smoothies on my way out the door to work, bring some Quinoa for my morning snack. Salad for lunch... Healthy. Full of nutrition. Easy to do.
Look at that. I think I have a nutrition plan for the week. Now to find salad recipes, etc. I should also make some home made ice cream - that's what I put into the smoothies instead of ice.
Time for me to get off the blog and get stuff done today. I hope you all have a productive day as well. If you are under this storm front that is here, be safe today.
