Last night, I had a long conversation with the hubby. When I have had just about all I can take…I just let it all out. It will usually hit me all at once like a hot flash and then I go straight to him and say, “I need to talk to you.” He’s very understanding and he even put the game on pause and hit the mute button so he could listen to me.
I am just completely overwhelmed. I have a little green calendar book that I would be lost without. AND, there are my Post-it notes. I would be lost without my Post-it notes! I use my Post-it notes to write down all that I think of during the day to get done. I plan and do way too much and then I pencil in more. Daniel knows this all to well, but he knows that he just needs to let me vent, get it all off my chest, and then I am right back where I was before…still busy and I haven’t backed off of one thing. There is really no resolution. I have just determined that I’m completely overwhelmed with “myself“. Eureka!
Just when I thought I could do no more; I got an email. My YMCA sent me a progress report. The subject line read, “Your FitLinxx Progress Report for March 2009 is ready.” It seemed rather silly to read at first, but I suppose their intent is to encourage and so I gave it another look. FitLinxx is the computer system that tracks my workout activity on the weights I lift on the machines and any cardio activity that I manually enter in. Anything I do at home can be entered in as well. I don’t workout as much as others, but at least I can say that I workout.
Squeezing in my workouts are part of what stretches me thin during the week, and I definitely have to squeeze it in. The visuals with the progress report puts a psychological spin on things. Especially when I see how much weight in elephants I lifted in March.
I really love elephants!!
