Ok so I have no idea how I have managed to maintain my weight loss thus far. Over the last few months I have not got in any exercise whatsoever! I have been eating OK> Most days I eat crappy and then I get back on track the next day. So i'm sure my body is just as confused as I am.

I am moving at the end of this month, so I know the packing, the cleaning, the organizing is helping to maintain whatever I have taken off. It's not true exercise, but I am exhausted by the end of the day/night. I still have so much to do. It's a daunting task to move a family of 5. The packing, the packing, the MORE packing. The trying to go thru everything and figure out AGAIN what we are taking, what we will get rid of and what to put in the "I have no idea what to do with THAT" pile. Then I am cleaning as I go: the walls where pictures were, the shelves in cabinets, the cabinets themselves, base boards...And there is STILL SO MUCH LEFT!
Thankfully we are having a yard sale this weekend. Once the EXTRA is gone I will have room to put boxes because right now everything is all over the place. I can barely walk thru my dining room, let alone sit at the disgusting table where everything has accumulated...dust, school work, packing tape, scissors, sharpies, paper plates cups and utincels! UGH! The clutter is making me crazy!

I am so in need for the summer challenge that is coming up. It will for SURE be a challenge to keep up with as it starts a week before we start taking stuff to the new house. Then I have the challenge of THE CHALLENGE while driving the kids to and from school (a 45 minute drive each way) for the last 3 weeks of June, then getting home to leave again for another 45 minute drive to work. My life will be crazy for the next 2 months until Summer officially starts. Just thinking about the craziness of my life makes me want to pack myself in a box and put me away in the back of the garage until July!

It helps to write. I have been feeling so much pressure, so much frustration over the last few weeks since we made this decision. Now that things are really moving fast and D-Day is fast approaching I am feeling anxious and stressed to the point that I either want to eat all day long or I dont eat at all. I need to find a balance. I will. I just need to remember to blog, write, BREATHE! I will do this....I just cant wait for the daily support check in's w/ my wonderful team of sparkers!

Here is to a very productive Summer!

    I totally feel your craziness. Hang in there. Are you anywhere near me? We can get together and commiserate over life's craziness. It would be a good break, anyway. :)

    Sounds totally chaotic! Sending you lots of calming thoughts! You'll get through it and come out the other side better for it all, right? Just remember to focus on making conscious decisions when it comes to food and sticking to small changes. Good luck!

    Hang in there. Things can seem so overwhelming right now, but they WILL get better. Make a list a cross off what you can get done each day. You will get there. Take a little time for you each day, it is important to take care of you!
