Hey everyone! Wow it has been a minute right? Geez. That working life is NO joke. I get up at 6:30, shower, feed the babies breakfast, pack lunches, grab a coffee, drop the baby off at daycare and go to work. What a crazy 5 months it has been.
I am currently transitioning to a new job… that is a whole post in itself… but definitely for another time.
One thing I realized after going back to work is that… I enjoy socializing with adults! Even though I am quite childish haha… I really enjoyed getting to know my coworkers and catching up on some adult conversation. I missed my kiddos but realized that they are THRIVING in their school/daycares. They get to run and play and socialize and it really just worked out quite wonderfully.
With that being said, 2018 has started out a bit dicey… so I’m going to take a moment to post a about my resolutions:
1- Meditate daily. This is so important guys. I really failed with the meditation deal in 2017 and it is 1000% necessary. I put on a few sleep meditations when putting my son to sleep last night, and though it didn’t work for a 4 year old who was very stir crazy from being inside due to snow/below freezing temps for 1 week, it was very relaxing and I noticed it kept him much calmer while going to sleep!
2- Medication. I am seeing my doctor tomorrow and hoping to get on a better medication. I have been so thankful to Prozac for all of its OCD help but I believe there may be another drug out there that can help me out a little more. I tried tapering off for a bit but it was unsuccessful. This does not mean I am a failure. This means that just like any other illness, I have to work at treating it.
3- Cooking. I need to cook more! This past weekend I made a delicious GRAIN FREE, banana/chocolate chip bread and Shepherd’s pie! They were both pretty good! Oh yeah, and I made pork chops! I have had so much anxiety recently and cooking has been a good way to channel that little bit of crazy.
4- Water. I feel like there have been times in my life I was the ultimate spokesperson for water, however, recently I’ve not been as wonderful at hydrating!! I purchased a water bottle from amazon that helps me remember to drink water every hour and I hope to keep it up! Water is so essential!
5- Spend less money. I am a Target, Amazon, Starbucks addict. Last year I wanted to do a post called a “SAT” out… where I boycott Target, Amazon and Starbucks for my own health and wellness lol… but I was too weak! I hope that I can do this soon… however, I equate this to having a food addiction almost. I mean, you can’t stop cold turkey because you still need things like… toilet paper, or medications. It is hard! I have set a limit for starbucks though…and hope I can keep at it. I am dangerously close to it so far though …so …things aren’t looking swell. Its okay!
Okay, so there is my small update. I am still around and still very much interested in maintaining this blog! However, things have been SO busy. Maybe meditation will help me with my blog goals!
What goals have you set for yourself in 2018? <3.
