I realized while away for the weekend that my life is out of balance.  I am too much in Mommy-mode.  I love my daughter but I want a break.  This is probably normal.  I don’t know that I will get a break any time soon, but I’m looking forward to the fall and going back to work.  I need more balance.  Tomorrow the little one goes to the babysitter for a half day and I’m looking forward to some free time.

My husband and I also need some time to reconnect.  This weekend did not provide that because there was camping chaos to deal with and activities with the step-kids.  We need a regular date night.  I don’t know when this will happen, but I hope we figure it out soon.

I’m feeling motivated now to make some changes for my health.  I am sick to death of chronic yeast infections and fatigue.  I also think I have some low-level depression, probably related to the general state of unbalance in my life.  I need some regular exercise and to improve my diet.  I need to cut back on my sugar and corn syrup intake, and eat more vegetables and drink more water.  I need to start these things yesterday.

So, starting now, I am taking my health into my own hands and being responsible about those aspects that I have some control over.  I am heading to my mom’s house for a few days and this will be a good opportunity to break some habits since I’ll be busy and not in my regular environment.  I will let you know how it goes.  The dietary changes will be easier for me to start with than the exercise piece so I’m going to focus on that for now, but plan to work on both.  I should be able to manage at least some yoga on a daily basis.  I would also like to learn more about nutritional and other home remedies.
