Trying to find balance.
Wednesday, September 25, 2013
I find that I'm taking up too much of my time on the computer. I use it to ignore my world and that ends up with my home being messy and too much food in my belly.
Today I decided that I'm going to clean something every day before I blog. I can get more stuff clean before I start sitting in front of the computer. When I'm actively doing something, I'm also less hungry.
I have still been taking my morning walks, that always helps get my day going. I feel energized when I get moving in the morning. When I sit to work on the computer, then all that energy leaves me. I need to keep on going in the morning while I have the energy so I can get more done. This doesn't mean I'll stop blogging, this just means it'll be later in the afternoon.
Tomorrow my mom will be getting her other eye done, so she'll have even eyes again. I'll be starting to help her around the house this weekend (if I don't get sick from being around sick people). I have been trying to tell her that I'll help and while I was dusting her home last weekend, she finally gave into me. I know how she likes her home cleaned and I have done it as a child, so I can do it now. I'm glad I can help her out.
I'm still a little emotionally drained from writing that love note to my husband. Fortunately there wasn't a big blow up over it and I hope he can see my concerns. I know he feels better when he has a daily salad, so hopefully he'll go back to eating those with his lunches again.
I haven't checked to see if that second insurance went through my doctor's office. Once that goes through, I really need to go in and find out what's wrong with my leg. It has been bothering me more and more daily. It's more than one thing that aches now and for the last week or so, I haven't made it past noon without it aching. I don't want to have to take pain pills daily to get through, in the long run it will cause more harm to my body. Unfortunately, until those charges have been paid, I can be denied treatment through the clinic and I just don't have the money to pay that bill. Yes, I will keep on complaining about this until I can get it fixed.
I will still be focusing on my fruits and veggies. I may not be tracking them, but I know that when I eat a plant-based diet, I tend to slowly lose the weight or at least not gain it. I made falafels for dinner last night and they were yummy. I probably could have made them better, but they weren't the worst thing I've ever made, it takes time to perfect a recipe and I'm still getting the hang of cooking dried beans for various uses. Baking them as "drop cookie" type instead of being able to make them into little balls wasn't the worst thing I could have done to them.
Hopefully this week I'll finally find the balance and things will align again.
