From as far back as I can remember I have been overweight and have attempted one diet after another to try to become that skinny girl I always dreamed of being. I'm starting this blog in hopes of using this as my motivational tool to finally change my lifestyle and get healthy. Feel free to cheer me on, give me advice or criticize me if need be. I'm way tougher on myself than anyone else can be on me.
Sometimes I feel like I'm so on top of things and then for some reason I get behind and I become overwhelmed. Thats how I am feeling right now, like there are never enough hours in the day. I've noticed even my blogging has slowed down over the last few days because honestly I just haven't had time to post much. I'm the type of person who likes routines and normalcy. When something happens and throws a wrench into my plans I just loose all sense of direction in my life. I'm sure most of you have read that this weekend someone went to an ATM in Canada and withdrew all my money. Well that money was suppose to pay my bills and buy groceries and now I have had to put all that on hold until I get my money back, which the bank said today would be 1-2 days so thats good. But it seems like my world has been turned upside down right now. I do things a certain way, at the beginning of the month I pay all my bills at one time and I grocery shop for the month well here it is the 5th and I've done none of that. I don't know why I have such a problem with dealing with bumps in the road. Thank God it hasn't effected my eating or exercise but in every other area of my life it has. It seems like I can never get ahead on anything I'm always struggling to catch up. Between cleaning house, running errands, appointments, school activities, college, homework, eating right and exercise I'm overloaded. I guess this is just my OCD kicking in again and feeling like I have to accomplish everything on the millions of lists I make. And even when I do get things accomplished its never quite good enough. I'm hoping once I get my money back in my account and then next Friday is the last day for one of my classes maybe some of this stress will ease up. I have such a huge headache right now because I know how much I have to do this next week. Probably the best thing to do is look at this just like I look at my weight loss journey, I need to just take life one day at a time and quit thinking about how much I have to do tomorrow or next week.
Does anyone else feel overwhelmed and what do you do when you feel this way? I'm just scared that feeling overwhelmed like this I might start slipping on my eating or exercising and I don't want to do that.
