May 1st. New beginning.

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

April was a particularly difficult month for me. i was WAY over scheduled. Some things were great, some things were just things that had to be done, like Medical appts (7 total between Mom and I). I had 3 times when i was derailed by headaches (allergy) and exhaustion. I bailed on church choir rehearsal, a get together with friends, and a dress rehearsal for a concert--- i hate it when that happens, but, i refused to feel guilty, because i needed to go to bed, and i did, all 3 times. with an ice/eye pack on. (pretty, eh?)

I basically GAVE UP because i was so overwhelmed.

so many things fell apart.
- i paid a Discover bill but didnt have the address showing in the window, so it came back to me, and, in turn was late, so i got charged...........
- i neglected posting daily to THE DAILY SHOT - i still took the pics daily, but, didnt post daily. this bothered me, because it is something i enjoy doing...
- I ate with more abandon than i would have liked (especially on vacation) and did not exercise much...

but, WAIT! upon reflection, i still made it to the gym 10 times, and walked 8 days, and did 10 hours of yard work.. so i guess i didnt do THAT badly after all. emoticon

So now, i look forward to May. I have cleared all my Streaks so i can start fresh today. This will be a time to get back on track with tracking, exercise, and taking care of myself (and others) in the best way that i can.

Listening to myself, saying NO when necessary, and really just taking time to Breathe.
