Where, Oh Where, Can My Wagon Be?

The Exercise wagon that is.  I've done a little bit of activity here in the last couple days but it is just not nearly what it needs to be.  Let's run through the excuses, shall we? 
  1. I'm flexing my schedule at work so I can go in late on Friday (my daughter is having a Mother's Day dealie at her school Friday morning and I promised I'd go).  What does this mean?  It means I'm into work at 4:45 every morning and today I'm not getting off until 4 p.m.  Ugh!  So I'm tired.  When I'm tired, I'm unmotivated to go the gym even though going would probably give me the energy I need to get through the week.
  2. I'm not sleeping well.  As I've mentioned previously, I have night terrors and some nights are just worst than others.  Last night, I practically took out our bedroom window.  I don't really remember why.  I think I THOUGHT someone was trying to come over the back wall and I was going to close the window before they got to the house.  Not real sure though.  Anyhoo, somehow I popped the screen right out of the window and I'm pretty sure I punched it or something.  Anyway, my arm hurts quite a bit today as if someone punched it really hard.  This is contributing to that whole "tired" thing.  I know it's because of stress...I'm worried about my sister, finding a house and my dad is having some health issues as well.  Stress makes these things worse and, again, I know working out would be a great stress reliever and I'd probably sleep better. 
So there you have it.  Not much by way of excuses, is it?  I suck. 

Otherwise, not much going on in my world.  So far, my eating this week has been WAY better than last week.  Not ideal, mind you, but better.  One step at a time and one thing I've committed to this week is going back to my "No Fast Food" rule.  I had done so well for so long and then the last 2 months, it's been a wreck.  My hubby is committing to this one too.  So far, so good.  I'm also refocusing on my water intake.  I had gotten so good about this...was getting it in every day without exception.  Then nothing all week last week.  And it's not like I was drinking other things (maybe some lemonade).  I just wasn't drinking.  Period.  That stops this week as well.  I've gotten my water in Monday and Tuesday and I believe today will be no different.

That realtor called me back.  We're going to look at 2 houses tomorrow.  One is a townhouse and one is a house house.  I think either one will suit our needs but we'll see which one we like better.  I'm relieved to have the help finding something and will feel so much better once I know where I'm living come June.

Wow.  This post is so random and kinda "Negative Nelly"ish huh?  Have no fear Candyland players...I have not lost my will, nor my resolve.  I am still sending positive vibes out into the universe hoping they will find me again.  So let's all get on the Happy wagon...with a Hump Day Happy Thought...

Limitations live only in our minds.  But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.

I can't imagine having night terrors. No wonder you are exhausted. Does your husband wake up for these? Once you get a house and start your move things will be better! We can bask in happiness together!

I am tryin got find a house too. It is super stressful and with night terrors on top of that I can only imagine why you are feeling a little blue.

Your wagon will come back to you. One step at a time.

I can't imagine what you're going through, but stress does awful things to us. You don't suck - always remember that. I said so!
