I am at a blah spot right now. I'm not real sure what's going on per se. May have to do with lowering my Prozac dose but I really want to try to get it lowered or even off it if my husband and I want another child. Then I was diagnosed with ADHD late 2012. I am taking Vynanse for that too. Took Adderall for awhile but had some trouble remembering to take it.

I think moving in April/May, my husband starting back to work and having a three year old is taking it's toll and I need a vacation. At the very least we are going to go visit my husband's family in northern IL for a few days.

My husband and I work different shifts and hardly see each other. And when we do have a day off it's usually doing housework. Then we are both so tired and worn out, not to mention each need some alone time if that makes sense.

Next I've got a stubborn little three year old. Just when I think she's got at least peeing down, she regresses *sigh*. Yeah, I know I need to have more patience which is one of MANY things I am working on.

Maybe I'm 'trying' to hard. Trying to maintain a nice, clean house...with a perfectionist husband. I'm trying to work the FlyLady system but 'baby steps' seem not enough even though I know it is. I'm also working on my ADHD. Trying to figure out how to deal with different things such as time management and distractions. I'm trying to take things in like a sponge about it. I'm almost OCD about it but trying not to be.

Finally and of course not least, is trying to eat healthy and exercise. I thought I had exercise down pat but I lost both my 10 sparkpeople vid AND my fitbit :-(. I haven't replaced my vid yet but I did buy I fitbit flex. Not real sure if I like it as well as the other one but I'm hoping that at least I won't lose something on my wrist :-p. And eating healthy? Between a husband who could care less what he eats to a picky three year old.... Not to mention I get overwhelmed trying to pick healthy food and use coupons and stuff.

Anyway....just venting all this out. My daughter was so tired after several days of being out and about that she actually fell asleep at a decent time. She's the best thing in my life and the most challenging. I've wanted to blog for quite some time but sometimes I don't feel like I have the time to do it. I hope to blog more often. Actually, I hope that anyone that doesn't see me blog for a week or so to speak up and let me know I need to say hey I'm still alive.

    Thanks for the feedback lady. I think I just needed to vent things out. I feel a bit better today.

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. Try to take things slowly, even if they have nothing to do with eating or exercise. You're trying to be more organized? Focus on that for a week or two. You're trying to see if you can wean yourself off your meds? Focus on that for awhile. Your emotional health is just as important as your physical health, and when you're emotionally healthy, you'll find it easier to be physically healthy. And I believe that the slower you take things, the more likely you are to keep off any weight you lose because it becomes a lifestyle instead of a diet.
