So I've started a new project with work and it's huge...so is the staff we've brought on. I will have basically two full time jobs and one part time for the next several months. Thankfully, a large portion of my time is working from my home office. I'd rather be busy than not...but I'm looking at a lot of working.
I'm not very good at putting myself first and exercising. And this week as I've worked hard to get all the training materials written, scheduling the training, getting the project up and running...I haven't been working out.
I'm sorry Team Tangerine...I'm letting you all down.
I'm also letting myself down. My neck and back hurt a lot again...from too much sitting and having my head bent over charts, books and papers. I'm struggling with staying focused and keeping myself on track with everything.
I want to exercise every day...but I also have to work. How do I do all this? How do I also take care of my husband and the animals? How do I balance it all? What do I give up? What do I do differently?
I eat a healthy breakfast and a healthy lunch most days. I'm cooking dinners at home more often (yep...somehow finding time to cook too) so that helps cut down on calories, fat, etc. But some days I don't eat as well....and some days, like this past week...I haven't exercised.
I'm kind of lost right now in terms of how to do all this....how do I juggle things? I'm not the greatest morning person. In fact, I hate mornings and despite wanting to get up and exercise early...it just doesn't happen. And I've already put in 12 hours working today and still have another 3 or so to go...so when do I exercise? When do I sleep?
Does anyone have any advice? I know a lot of you are far busier than I am and have kids to boot...so how do you do it?
