The T Word

Transition... I hate that word! I know they are inevitable, but...
This summer DH is starting a new business with friends after being unemployed for roughly 16 months...I recently started a new job, albeit part-time... we have three graduations and a wedding in the next three months...and in August my youngest goes off to college about 5 hours from here. Not that these are unhappy events (although one of them is absolutely breaking my heart) but I am sure if I took one of those stress quizzes I would be off the charts!
I need to be able to manage my stress. In my head I know how to do it - exercise, eat right, get enough sleep, pray (I AM doing lots of that!)...but I can't seem to get myself motivated to take action - I am too busy and STRESSED! I am really trying not to eat my way out of this emotional state, and for the most part I am doing well. I am not gaining, although not losing either. For now I am content with that.
The next two weeks will be a whirlwind of activities...but I am going to make up my mind to take 15 minutes a day for some kind of exercise, even if it is only a stroll outside. Baby steps...
(And then of course my beloved Yankees are losing......)
