I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that my PCP wanted me to get up earlier to start exercising, or going for a walk. Yeah, I did that ONCE. I am so bad! I am not a morning person. And right now I am so physically exhausted that the thought of getting up any earlier than I have to, and even getting up WHEN I have to is a burden.
I am disappointed in myself for not following through on getting up in the morning, but currently I am working 55-65 hours a week between my 2 jobs. I am working 8am – 4:30 pm with a 30 minute lunch Mon-Fri at the “day job” then 3 nights a week I am working 5-10:30 or 11:30 at the second job, and then working again Saturday 5-10:30 and Sunday 9-5.
This week I have Wednesday and Thursday night off. I have counseling Wednesday night and we always go to the races (Thunderroad) on Thursday nights. I also have Saturday off – YAY!
So I have a 30-minute lunch, and 30 minutes between jobs, that I spend driving to get from point A to point B. Day job, I don’t take 15-minute breaks. Night job I wasn’t taking my 15-minute break, but I am now in order to eat something healthy for supper.
I really enjoy both jobs, but something has to give. I can’t keep this pace up. 5 hours a sleep at night is not enough for me. Plus I can’t work 7 days a week. I am exhausted. Today is a real bad day. I can hardly keep my eyes open.
I am doing my absolute best to eat healthier, so that I am fueling my body with good things. I can’t imagine what I would feel like right now if I were feeding my body yucky food. I track my food every day. I am not keeping too focused on my weight. I am going to just weigh myself on the doctor’s scale once a month. If I focused too much I might think it wasn’t coming off fast enough and sabotage myself. I don’t need to lose weight before my surgery but you are required to follow a “diet & exercise” plan prior to surgery. I am doing great with the diet plan and not so great with the exercise plan.
I need to cut back my hours in order to focus on me. This is a tough decision, because I like working. I like both my jobs. But, this will give me time to focus on my health, and my new business venture JewelScents byCoraLee.
