For me, the Tough had to prioritize and re-arrange my "plate of life" for a little bit.
Soooo, I accepted a position within my company, but in a different city, 2 hours away. I'm still in the process of moving and getting things situated, but it has been VERY STRESSFUL. I've been working weekends (Friday-Monday) for almost 9 years. I had an opportunity to work Monday-Friday with the same company, but I'd have to move. My husband works from home, so we had to jump on the opportunity!!! And we did.
About 2 months ago, we filled a PODS, painted, fixed and cleaned and put our house on the market. It sold in 4 days, which is not what we were expecting, but apparently it was meant to be! The new owners wanted us out quicker than we like, so we will be living with my mother-in-law until school ends for my kids. We close on the current house Monday and close on the new house on June 4.
Emotionally, this has been exceedingly difficult. I was stressing myself and everyone around me out so bad, I thought I was going to have a breakdown. I decided to loosen the reigns a bit with my eating, tracking and exercising, which can take a lot of energy. ;) I have gained about 8 pounds, but considering my working out has all but vanished, I'm not going to beat myself up about it.
I re-charged my FitBit and put it on Tuesday for the first time. We moved most of our large furniture out, just the 2 of us, and I got in almost 15,000 steps! I'm trying to get back into the habit of tracking and such again, because I miss it. Plain and simple. I miss having a schedule, life has been turned inside out and I'm looking forward to being settled and in a routine again. 3 more weeks!!!!! Not to mention, we will actually be living like a "normal" family, with weekends spent with my husband and kids, not working. I cannot wait!
I'll be in and out until then. I hope everyone has had a fantastic Spring. I have many blessings and wonderful new horizons to look upon. Now I just need to find some patience. HAHA!
