I think I posted too soon about reaching Onederland. I’ve been struggling ever since. DS and his wife came Saturday to celebrate DH birthday and we had such a good visit! The wine was flowing, and that always puts me over.
The thing I’m struggling with is balance. How to stay on track while moving through a stressful period. That’s one of the reasons I’ve gained so much weight through the years. And why retiring was so good for me. I thought I had overcome, but alas...I find myself struggling again.
We are getting the house market ready to sell. We’ve decided to move to FL to get away from the cold, and be near family. I’m a fiend for perfection, so everything must gleam and look just right. I’m cleaning windows, dusting blinds, dusting baseboards, cleaning appliances, cleaning out closets, vacuuming, mopping, gardening...you name it...I’m doing it. I don’t mind, really. The results make me happy. But I’m finding that I’m not exercising...not walking or doing my videos. We are on such a time crunch to get the house listed this weekend that I feel I just don’t have a moment to spare for myself. That’s just wrong! Luckily, I eat healthy...although I’m not tracking as thoughtfully as I should. And the weight I gained over the weekend is inching back down.
I plan to walk today. I’ll do the 3 mile walk around the lake, which always clears my head. And when I walk, I track. And when I track, I lose weight. I must take time for myself. Letting stress derail my efforts of the past year is not an option!
Today is a new beginning. Spark On!
