April is almost over and we made a major move after 30 years in one house last week. My April goals have been mostly met, except for regular exercise! I'm disappointed in myself because I can't seem to adjust to a new schedule, or at least work out while we're getting settled. Every day has brought what seems like a new disaster, challenge, or delay.
Remodeling issues, a broken air conditioner and just plain too much stuff in a smaller house are keeping me awake at night and contributing to my frustration. On the plus side, I'm tracking food and staying within a reasonable calorie range. Two years ago this much stress would have driven me to comfort food - now it disrupts my sleep and makes me anxious!
May will be the month for me to organize an exercise schedule I can stick to and try to find better ways to cope while we clean out the old house and fix it up for sale. Traveling 200 miles back and forth between houses brings its own set of challenges - the sooner the old place sells, the better.
I read somewhere that it takes three years before a new place feels like home. Back to one day at a time...
