Changes for today - Not yesterday or tomorrow - but, today.

Monday, February 25, 2019

As I have mentioned countless times before - I am an emotional eater and I get easily stressed out when I have too many things going on at once.
I am trying to find a good alternative to my life's chaos and I think I may have found something that will work well with me.
I am going to purchase a planner that I am able to make notes in by the hour - I am going to plan my day by the hour all the way down to eating lunch or bathroom breaks. I NEED to keep myself accountable for a wee bit just to get myself into a rhythm that I can work with. To avoid the chaos of my new life.
It's horrible being a single mom, doing 40 hour work weeks plus an additional 15+ school hours a week. I NEVER see my girls or have time to do mundane tasks such as cook better meals or just relax and watch a movie with the kids anymore.
It's likely I am just trying to fill up my entire day to ignore the fact that my marriage bombed and I am unhappy. BTW... today is my marriage anniversary to that nightmare!
I'd be a big fat liar if I didn't say it wasn't affecting me a little bit though.

I'm still trying to find myself and my new norm... but, I miss my babies and I need to figure out a way to incorporate them back into my life again somehow.

For today... I can't promise tomorrow and I know I didn't do it yesterday... but, today - I plan to work out using my skimble app and picking a random exercise to do when I get home. I can and will do this everyday that I can. Hoping to keep myself accountable.

    I'm sorry things are so rough at the moment, I hope there is a light at the end of the tunnel and you are able to feel more relaxed and in control. It's hard to be missing your babies but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.

    I'm an emotional eater too. My down fall is candy.

    Accountability is my downfall too, no one seems to really notice my weight as long as the house is clean, they get where they need to be and don't starve, who cares if mom is overweight, and of course I just smile, one they'll see the change!!!
