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.
