I haven’t had a week of honest-to god workouts since February. Working full-time left me utterly exhausted; mentally, emotionally and physically. Most days Scotti and Diego would be lucky if I could gather the energy to take them on a walk.
Healthy eating all but disappeared. I packed on 20 pounds since January, because calling in pizza and stopping to pick up a bag of gummy worms was just easier. I kept trying to get into Whole30 again, but when there’s no time to grocery shop, it’s all but impossible.
Now I’m back to working part-time. It’s a mess for my checking account, but it’s been great for my soul. I feel like I finally have time to collect my thoughts. Scotti, Diego and I only missed walks when I was in New Orleans. I’ve only had pizza twice since school started, and both times I made it.
And today I finally unrolled my yoga mat and did this 20 minute yoga flow.
Yes, working full-time is great for the money and filling the day. But I know that I cannot handle it for such a long stretch. Yes, I’m going to be a little more stressed out about paying bills and really have to get used to not shopping. Now I have time to invest in myself.
and that’s pretty great
