Lately I’ve been Mrs. Blog neglector, which isn’t really like me at all. the thing is, I feel my whole, having it all, doing it all and loving it persona is starting to crumble a little. I’m feeling a little, ok more than a little overwhelmed this week. Don’t get me wrong, I still love school, but some of the bloom is off the rose. There are days when i feel like my brain can’t wrap itself around one more piece of information. I just need a day off! In fact, today I really planned on skipping class to just get caught up. Of course, my fear of missing anything important kicked in and I chickened out. I really should be home relighting the old home fires! There’s a line from a movie that keeps going through my head. It’s from the divine Secrets of the YA YA sisterhood. I feel like I’m about to “drop my basket”. I just keep listing the things I need to do in my head and they never seem to get checked off. School, work, family, homework, spending time with my husband, cleaning the house, scrapbooking, making jewelry……… I am tired all the time. that can’t be good. Ironically, I think the solution is adding one more thing to my plate….exercise. Before I started school I used to work out 5-6 times a week. Now I get to school early so I can park my car closer instead of walking. My weight is skyrocketing. it doesn’t take a genius to link that little fact to my lack of energy. I’ve decided that I am going to get a little help from a personal trainer friend of mine. I am going to meet with her at the butt crack of dawn three days a week. It is going to suck for awhile but I know my body. If I don’t exercise I feel like crap. So that’s my plan. Now if I can only find the energy to follow through!
