Need to find balance in my life

Wednesday, January 01, 2020

I am. Starting the year 16 lbs heavier than I was last year. 2019 totally sucked in terms of personal care. I let my job take over my life to rhe point that I was not even exercising regularly as I had been. I would start a routine and start out strong on monday and then peeter out by the end of the week. I haven't tracked meals and I haven't been eating as healthy as I should. My father's failing health has not helped. I contribute ro his care financially and do what I can when I come home to give my brother and cousins some respite when I do come down to visit and then it's all about him. He is not getting any better and the job isn't going anywhere, but somehow I need to find the balance to take care of me. I have been unable to find that proper balance in the last aeveral years and I feel like I am failing in all aspects-- mental, physical, spritual, everything. Of course, i have complained about this before. I clearly have not found a solution out of the rut that I am in other than to keep trying
