Balancing Act

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I have been really struggling as of late. I feel like the whole best laid plans of Mice and Men is happening to me.

I really need to figure out some balance and how to focus on more than one thing at once.. I am not a good multi-tasker. It seems like the weeks I'm really rocking the whole healthy lifestyle change thing are the weeks I'm not getting enough work done.

And the weeks were I'm hyper focused and stressed about work well I'm not doing so great on the nutrition and exercise front.

Somethings got to give here or I need to find some help or method to learn how to balance my life better.

Of course it also doesn't help that I also seem to have a self sabotage switch built in. The scale has seriously not been budging and it gets me so down, then I down like half a pizza or half a dozen who gives a sh#t cocktails. So that reaction isn't helping, its been a little better this week but I just feel liek I'm losing steam here. My motivation is at a severe low.

How do you guys handle balance in life? Any tips in balancing a hectic work schedule while still focusing on healthy choices, fitting in exercise, staying motivated, and still having some fun while doing it all?

    Balance is so hard! I fell the same way. I try to exercise when playing with the kids and watching tv, but it is always a struggle.

    Balance is so hard. It takes organization and preparation. Time management is as precious as calorie counting some days.

    I keep reminding myself that it is all worth it in the end. emoticon

    The balancing is not easy for me either. I think the important thing is that we keep working at it.

    Life keeps changing and we have to adapt to it.

    I guess it's a matter of setting priorities and being willing to change...but I could be wrong because I'm still working on the balance too!
