Too Busy

Sunday, February 03, 2013

As the weeks race by, I find that I have taken on too much for myself. I have always been one of those people who is overly busy....too many projects, too many hobbies, too many commitments. Through the years I have learned to say no, cut back and be more organized. But here I am on Sunday night, just like every other Sunday night, racing to get things finished before my busy work week starts.

As far as my health goes, I am trying to take small steps, but it is still a lot to handle. We used to eat out all of the time, now I am planning meals, shopping and cooking. I am trying to eat thoughtfully, slowing, chewing and savoring my meals. I am eating six or more tiny meals each day, which entails even more planning. I am also trying to get some physical activity every day. I have a very sedentary job (I am not kidding when I say I could sit there for ten hours straight and not get up) so I am trying to get up and move and I am walking every day at lunch. I am also trying to work in at least a tiny bit of strength training each week. I want to do some yoga but I can't see that happening just yet. I am also trying to get to bed much earlier.

But like I said, I was already pretty stretched and here it is, Sunday night. I am way behind on my weekend chores because I was already behind from last weekend, and the weekend before! I must catch up and so this weekend I didn't go for any walks. I haven't had time to work on my hobbies lately and I am trying desperately to catch up. My husband helps a lot but he is super busy too.

I am committed to my health and I am going to hang with it. But I am going to have to think of more ways to stream-line my schedule.

    Sounds like you are a whole lot of busy.
    I was wondering, it there anyway you can do some of the sitting/arm chair exercises they have on here while you work?
    When you don't have time in the evenings, I see nothing wrong with grabbing something from a restaurant. Now a-days, most have added healthy items to their menu.
    With your schedule, it does sound like you need to make sure you are healthy, Once we get too tired and stressed, that's when we get sick.
    Just remember to take time for yourself. Treats also are fabulous.

    Here's hoping this week's a better one for you. New habits are just that and take time and energy to cultivate so hang in there and focus on what you want to see. emoticon
