Stop the ride, I want to get off!
Wednesday, November 13, 2013
I have been on a downward spiral lately. I am allowing the stress of my hubby being gone to affect me in ways I don't want it too. Binge eating, avoiding taking care of the house, yelling at my kids too much, not exercising or sleeping like I should. The worst part is that was just during his pre-deployment. He leaves the country very soon, and I'm not sure how to survive the next 9 months.
Baby steps. That is where I am going to start. For now, I am just going to track as much food as I can. I will continue to attend my martial arts classes. Those help me a lot.
One HUGE stressor I have is I will be inspected soon for my daycare. I am in no way ready as far as paperwork goes and not sure how ready I will be when the time comes. But I can make steps in the right direction.
I am also stressed about the kids and the upcoming holidays, but I have somewhat of a plan in place.
I would appreciate any support, prayers and advice anyone gives. Please, however, don't suggest I let housework go. My home is also my workplace so that is NOT optional.
I am not ready to throw in the towel. I refuse to let my health and well being take a back seat. It is time for me to regroup and prioritize to better reach my goals.
