First of all...
Many thanks and deep appreciation to all who posted on my New Year's Day blog. I haven't had the time to thank each of you individually, but I hope you all know that the thanks is there!!!
I am feeling very overwhelmed lately!!!!
I am trying really hard to keep up with my challenges... and it's been hard lately. I know it's just been a half a week, but during that time I have gone full time (not looking for a pity party, just understanding because I'm not used to it at all) and I have so much on my to-do plate at my other, still part time, job that I'm feeling stressed. I have payroll, W2 forms, tax forms, tax payments, contribution entries and statements, as well as other year end stuff to do and I don't know when I'll be able to do it all... do I work lots of 12 hour days... working my full time job then going to the part time job for a few hours each night? or do I put in a whole Saturday? Thus stressing out at not having any free time, when I'm used to only working 3 days per week... I'm not really pouting, I'm just trying to sort these thoughts and decide how I want to do this.... and I'm stressing. :/ Deep breath!!
On a good note, I have lost one pound this year already... on a bad note, I have lost ONLY ONE pound this year so far.
I need some relaxing de-stressing time right now, to clear my head and make a plan. I'm lucky in that at my part time job I can set my own hours, as long as I get the work done and in a timely manner. ... I haven't taken that for granted.
I need a chill-pill! :)
And I needed to get this out of my system.
I'm feeling slightly better already.
I want everyone to know that I have not disappeared if it appears so either now or in the next couple of weeks. I have a lot to take care of, obviously... and then there's the sticking with my plans and challenges and making some progress on my weight losing. When it rains it pours. ... ... and then we get rainbows. :)
