Things around here are revving up to be nuts and I'm having a hard time finding the energy to deal with it all.
Mostly its my work life which I choose not to discuss in great detail via the bloggernets. In a nutshell though: in the next month my boss is leaving the company (and there is not yet a replacement for her), my assistant is going on maternity leave (and I am finding it IMPOSSIBLE to find a temp. replacement for her) another important team member is going on FMLA for a month to have surgery, and requirements for my position are increasing. Lovely.
All this a mere 4 months before my wedding. If my assistant leaves on her due date March 22nd and decides to take the full 12 weeks....she will be returning 3 days before my wedding. I am not even kind of sure how I am going to be able to stand my work life in the coming weeks.
Personal life - well my fitness goals are being achieved with flying colors. Tonight I blog to you from my bed- legs deliciously sore from all the exercise they've been getting. I am 13 lbs from reaching my initial 35lb goal - and I am psyched. I'm working really hard to not give in to my hectic work life and crash on the couch when I get home and so far my will power has been strong enough to sustain.
My eating habits have definitely changed. There are some dietary choices that I have made of late that I feel like are really boosting my efforts. I would like to write a post about these things soon but in short I've cut out regular milk and switched to soy- and I'm also substituting some meats for soy or veggie products as well. I have ditched all full fat dairy in favor of fat free and of course the cornerstone of Weight Watchers my fiber intake is out the yin yang- and without the gory details- that is DEFINITELY helping my digestive system!
As far as other aspects of my personal life- Ben is sick and acting like a giant baby. I will never understand how a woman can get sick and will never miss a beat- at home, at work, etc. but a man can get sick and you would think the world has come to an end. I got home today and there were crumpled tissues all around him on the couch and empty Sudafed wrappers and thermometer covers on the bathroom floor. When I discovered these things I blew up on him and he accused me of picking on him while he's sick - ugh! Lose-lose.
I'm just grumpy today I suppose. I think I'll lay back and finish watching 16 and Pregnant (guilty addiction for sure!) and go to sleep.
I know I haven't been around the blog circle lately and I apologize- I wish I could say that I will get better- but its probably only going to get worse until the wedding and just beyond. The only thing I can say is that I'm getting more familiar with the scheduled post feature- and I will try to begin using it soon!
Hope all is well with ya'll! I miss you all and will try to catch up on your lives very soon!
Much Love Always!
