I'll admit I'm a bit of a scrooge during the holidays.Over the past couple of years, I haven't become better about the holidays. But for myself, where I don't have the kids on whole days of holidays (we split the day itself in half) I just feel empty sometimes. A bit before Thanksgiving, I was … Continue reading Navigating Holidays; Divorced. 🌿
I had my first panic attack in years. Since I've been able to manage most of my ADHD symptoms (and anxiety), I started "over doing it" again. There were also some things going on behind the scenes that I won't dive into. Let's just discuss about me having difficulty managing living with a Maximalist. While, … Continue reading Chaos.🍃
Co-parenting isn't always easy. Things haven't been easy over the past few months. Going from having the kids four days a week to essentially six with little help has been rough. And I mean rough. I know, I know there are others that have it WORSE then I do. I'm beyond grateful to have them … Continue reading Stress: Part III
I stopped working with my nutrition coach. I originally signed up for three months to see where I could take my body but something happened in the last few weeks. I felt my energy depleting, mainly because I had increased my training at Crossfit. I found myself faced with a lot of "going out" situations … Continue reading Time For A Break.
I've been feeling myself fall into a downward spiral. I know what triggered it (won't dive into it), but I'm in awe as to how aware I am. I know exactly what is causing me to feel down and I'm seeing that every little thing is effecting me. I'm trying to crawl out of this … Continue reading Downward Spiral.
I have to admit, I've been pretty run down the past week. From the moment I first subbed in March, to getting the interview and demos at the new gym that I was just hired at - add Crossfit on top of that mix and WHOA.I''ll be honest, I'm just tired with a dash of … Continue reading Run Down.
Yesterday I had a phone court hearing to finalize my divorce. I honestly am not sure how I feel, probably because it was on the phone and not in person. A couple of weeks before the hearing I decided to stop also dating. I had been dating for about five months with awful luck. I … Continue reading Boundaries Pt. II
I debated on writing this post, but my mind has been racing. During the last three weeks of December, so much happened; my brother go into a car accident, I had a family member pass away, my grandmother ended up back in the hospital and my ex and I finally re-filed for divorce on December … Continue reading To New Beginnings.
"Happiness is a journey, not a destination."This quote has been said by many and I often try to remind myself of this. I was re-watching Matt D'Avella's video on The Happiness Paradox and in this video he says "the more we think about the things we don't have, the more we remind ourselves we don't … Continue reading Pursuit of Happiness.
Thursday was a rough day. I went to a particular grocery store for the first time in three weeks and I just felt massive anxiety come over me. People were being rude, watching your every move. It just felt so odd. Walmart is the only place I can go in "peace." I go once a … Continue reading Anxiety.
