Possibly have it figured out (no not everything)!

Friday, May 24, 2013

Ok, so I have been struggling on getting on SP and tracking everything on here. Just not enough hours in the day. I found that it is easier for me to track all day long, using my ipod, and the next day, when I have downtime in the mornings (or on breaks at work), I can log in to SP, and take care of the stuff here I need to take care of. I know, today is day one of this, and it's easy to say, but I really think it will work! So that part I have figured out (I hope).

I also have figured out that puppies need to be watched... CONSTANTLY. lol

I haven't figured out yet though, how to add those extra hours into the day and still get a good nights sleep. I guess that is something I have to keep working on! I do have the working out routine locked down, that is good. I have learned that I needed to re-prioritize everything in my life. My son is 13, not 3, and he can do a lot more that I give him credit for! Also, my wonderful husband, has been helping a lot, however he is not 3 either and I need to keep on him to pick up after himself lol. Over the years I have forgotten how to take care of myself. And through out my journey, I have realized (recently) that I need to take care of ME first. That it is not being selfish, however it's more like if I'm not healthy and in a good mood, then it's hard to help the rest of the family. I am number one in my life, and up until now I have been number 2 to my son, then number 3 to my son and husband, and I kept getting moved down the list, and my life was spiraling out of control. I have regained control (for the most part), and it feels great! My husband has picked up on it, and I'm hoping my son will too. I realize that in my son's stage in life, he is figuring out a lot right now, and I'm sure he is overwhelmed. I hope that I can help him with that. It's hard being a teenager, I realize, and I hope with my renewed energy, I can be a good role model/friend/and parent to my little boy (he will always be my little boy).

On that note, I am going to get back to work, and I am going to try to figure out when I can find time to upload pics of my puppy Remi, and her big sister Jazz. lol
