How do you find the time?
Tuesday, July 21, 2009
I have a very long day at work with a 4 hour commute each day. I wake up at 3 am, leave the house by 4:30 to get to work by 6 am. I leave work between 3 and 3:30 and get home between 4:30 and 5 pm. The things left to do are: cook, eat, exercise, clean, sleep; all before 3 am the next morning. I also need some quality time with the dogs and my husband. It is just so hard somedays to fit everything in. Since January, I made a committment to eat right, making a lot of my meals, and exercise. I just need some kind of time managment class that manages the free time. I have time management skills for work, so it it very frustrating not to be able to manage my personal time. I am a knitter, spinner, crocheter and have done so very little these past 6 months. The problem with not crafting: I use those activities to ease stress, increase my happy times, and utilize my creative talents that are not used in my job. I know that I will never be able to substitute anything else for that enjoyment. Exercise and food are consuming my time right now and I feel unhappy about it.
I do have my nutritionist appointment tomorrow, so I am hoping there will be some suggestions there.
Could you imagine if I had kids, or others to care for? I don't know how all of you out there do it! Here's to all of you!
