Lest You Be Concerned...

Saturday, April 06, 2013

I haven't disappeared entirely. In one of my last blogs, I commented that I needed to step back a little bit so that I could focus on lowering my stress level, and making my mental health my primary concern, since I felt a bit like my brain was trying to explode.

This seems a counterintuitive step, because with my job, I really need to have my head in the game in order to succeed. But I felt like it was very necessary, and so, anything that wasn't directly contributing to my mental health was pitched out the window.

I feel like I have done a good job of de-stressing, in fact, I just got back from the first vacation that I have taken since I started this new job a year ago. I do desperately need to start focusing on my health in general, and so I will be slowly starting to work toward my goals, as previously stated.

Over the next few days, I will be catching up on my emails & threads from SP, and next week I will be getting back to exercising more. Phasing back in regular exercise could be tough, although it was going well before I smashed my foot. My current plan is to focus on what I am doing, therefore, I will be focusing on getting in a workout five times a week.

I will also be focusing on making sure that I am eating "good foods", not junk. I am going to hold off on tracking my food again, but again, I will be playing it by ear on when to start that again.

    It is always good to take a good look at where you are in family, work and play and make goals to get everything in balance. I applaud you for taking the time to do this. Good luck with making goals that are good for the family, your work and YOU. All are important and above put God first! emoticon

    So good to hear from you! Even at my age we sometimes have to step back a bit as we become overwhelmed with everything going on. Your family needs you at this stage as they grow up so fast, so don't leave them out of the picture. Do what you can and start with those proverbial 10 min. daily exercise - maybe even while seated.
    Didn't know about injured foot, but hope all is better now.
    Don't worry about responding to my comments - just do what you can. We all understand.
