As I sit here on this quiet Saturday morning I am reminded that my life is anything but quiet. The only noise I hear is my wall clock ticking away. My Chihuahua Shelby is sound asleep in her little bed. My mind begins to race thinking about all that I have to do today. Saturday is usually my busiest day of the week. I have weight lifting and core class this morning. I have an afternoon walk and then church this evening. And in between all of that I need to do some more packing. I am in the moving process as a lady wants to buy my home. I also need to put my application in at other apartments. I have done several already. This may sound like a lot.......but to be honest this is my short list....as I have so much more that I am currently doing. I have several up and coming dr's appointments for myself..one to meet with my therapist and the other with my primary dr. I also have dr's appointments for my ex hubby who lives in an assisted living place and will be moving to a nursing home soon. I made this commitment to him to go do this for him......So I always do this. It sounds like big stuff. But I do know it's not bigger than God. He helps me with this. I do know with all of this my mental health is suffering some. My PTSD is causing me some issues and so is my other mental health stuff. When I get under stress my mental health takes a hit........so that is what is happening. I do know that I am continuing on with my clean eating......and working out. I do know that those things help with the stress. I must admit I feel pretty proud of myself as I am still doing ok with my eating by not eating from my stress as I am an emotional eater. I continue to find other healthy ways to deal with this. I also try to make sure I get plenty of rest as that is important too. As I sit here I realize that my quiet morning is about to come to a close as I need to make breakfast before I head out the door for weight lifting and core class. But first I have a date with Jesus...........so I am off to go hang out with him.
