Must We Do ALL The Things?

I know I complain about adulting too much. I am a complainer ... let me show you the ways of my people.

But I just get so overwhelmed by life sometimes that I forget to take care of me. This post isn't about weight, it's just about taking care of myself.

I do notice I let stress get the best of me. I sometimes think work and chores are THE most important things. I get all stressed out about them, and then I eat crap and don't exercise and then I'm tired all of the time.

I think I'm going to do my best to start off tomorrow on a new foot: reminding myself that work shouldn't override everything. I'm going to try to put taking care of myself FIRST, and treat myself like the most important thing. If that means I leave work to workout instead of staying late to finish a project, then so be it. If that means I do a hobby I enjoy instead of cleaning the house, then that's that.

I plan to go buy groceries today instead of eating ramen and granola bars because I don't want to take a long lunch or take time to cook myself a nice meal. That's the only thing I'm going to make myself do. Work is not life.

There's only one of me and I want to take care of that me.
