When life is not perfect, but pretty good...

The year is half over, and some difficult changes have been happening. I feel as though I have just begun any real progress and the college gym I use is closing to the public. Work is getting tougher because the program manager wants to implement all of his ideas; we don't have enough capacity for that!! And with all of the added work, the workouts are getting more difficult to fit it.
Oddly enough, I feel as though things are going okay. Didn't log this weekend, knowing that there is hell to pay at the end. It is one of those high carb & calorie things. This week will include lots of walking and gardening. Hope to make it to gym one or two more times before I leave for Florida. The "boss" is out of town, and I can do what needs to be done, when I get to it.
Meanwhile, people are telling me that I am looking pretty good! And I feel pretty good too-
When I'm back from a quick vacation next weekend, it will be time to set new sites for the body, mind, spirit and life. I'm looking forward and feeling hopeful. There are some things I want to do, and learn like how to say "no thanks", how to take some time for self which includes rest and personal development. It already feels as though i am getting closer to making me, my husband and our lives a higher priority. I want to keep moving in that direction. It has been tough because we are so loved. Sometimes it feels more like everyone just once a piece of us all the time. We get left out of the distribution of self.
This weekend felt like a better balance... we spent time together, and alone, and with family & friends. All it took was an extra day off of work! DUN, Dun, duuuuun... Did someone say "change your work style"? --- That is a whole other conversation. And the time to start it is NEXT WEEK!
