Truth

Truth : I have been making poor food choices.  And as a result I feel gross.  Which is adding to my exhaustion and feeling extremely overwhelmed. 

Truth : My vow to stop procrastinating as a New Year's Resolution is not completely working.  Change is hard.

Truth : I leave for a vaca in nine days and I am completely unprepared.  At the moment, I don't even know what gift I plan to make for the big event.  How I am going to fit that in is just beyond me.

Truth : Sometimes when I am feeling overwhelmed, I behave like a deer in headlights.  I just sort of freeze and can't figure out how to accomplish anything.

Truth : Other times I am like a rock star who just ticks everything off the list.  Unfortunately this phase always comes after an extended deer in headlights phase.

Truth : I received a very surprising and bizarre email last night.  A request for a favor that sort of puts me in an odd position.  It's not that the person is undeserving of favors.  I just can't reconcile how I can be both honest and helpful to this person at the same time. 

Truth : Even with all the work and me not being particularly great at anything this week, I have had/have planned some very sweet friend dates woven into the fibers of my hectic schedule.  Sweet friends keep my cray cray in check during stressful periods.

Truth : Even if I don't bring any gift on vaca and have to wear my fat girl clothes, I will be loved and no one will care.  I will stress every minute until I get on that plane but once I get there, I will be nothing but relaxed smiles.  And I will get to wear flip flops!

Truth : No one will perish if I don't get it all done.  Sometimes I forget that.

As I procrastinate on homework that is due Sunday, I must say Amen. To everything. I gave up fast food for lent (also because I'm afraid of having a heart attack at 28) and I'm trying to make the best choices. You can do it. I promise.

Love and respect your honesty. I could relate to much of what you were saying...and told myself last night I need to start focusing on "me' and getting back in better shape, eating healthier,etc....but as you said towards the end, whether you end up wearing clothes a size up from your usual and dont' go bearing gifts....those who love you will still love you just the same. Have fun and wishing you a wonderful weekend:)

I've been seriously procrastinating on my fitness goals. I just worked out for a few hours this morning - hopefully I'm back on track!
