Need to carve out some "me" time

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

One week since Zumba...but today is a new day. And, she played my favorite song! Argh. Life has been even more stressful than usual. My daughter is 4 or 5 essays away from graduating from High School...finals start today. My college son moved home...and is not sure what his grades will be from this semester. No health insurance, and although we applied last night for coverage from the state, my oldest will not be covered and my daughter won't be after her birthday. My husband is getting depressed about not landing any of the jobs he has gone for and is sleeping more during the day.

I am doing o.k., but it is hard having no "alone" time. My most humbling moment ever is when the neighbor brought over a box of food from the food bank. My facade of "we're making it" just crumbled. But we are. My business is going well, we have money in the bank to last at least until the end of this month, and we are all relatively healthy.

Not making the best food choices and not exercising enough. I made tacos for dinner and just had a taco salad myself. It was really yummy. Went to bed at a decent hour and got a good night's sleep...woke up on my own. Woke up with the realization that I don't want to spend the rest of my life fat. So, somehow I am going to have to carve out "me" time and just head out and walk or bike or hit a Zumba class on my own. Cause no one will do it for me, and life is too short to live fat.

Sorry to vent...hope you all have a great day!
