I just wanted to write a small post about my absenteeism this week.
If you are a regular reader, you may know that I weigh-in on Fridays and do a weekly review on Sundays. I did neither this week.
Life has been throwing me some curves in the past little while. New job. A move. Relationship woes. A car accident that landed my mother in the hospital. Familial depression and illness.
I'm really trying to keep it all together and doing a decent enough job I think. However, I have been overworking myself. Trying to prove I deserve this amazing job. Doing my housework, plus my mother's house and yard work. Fixing other people's problems and ignoring my own- as usual. I'm not so much complaining, just venting. I'm resilient and I know I can get past all this.
My eating hasn't been great. I try to keep myself in check though. I need to realize that eating doesn't solve my problems. In the long run, it just makes them worse. I know this, just need to put it into practice.
I still move myself on a regular basis- walking/biking to work and errands work related. Tennis. Yoga to calm my nerves. I even jumped on the elliptical last week! etc. I know it is not enough to lose, but it is enough to not gain. Exercise isn't really my problem- the aforementioned terrible eating habits are.
So, until I get my bearings headed in the right direction... I will try to post more often. But I can't promise it.
I'm off to the grocery store. Good fuel only in that cart. Maybe a haul later?
What do you do to battle fatigue?
