Hello...Is This Thing On?

Yeah. It's been a while. A month to be exact.

In the past month I have:

Had a visit from Me Mum
Made the decision to move to a 2-bedroom apartment (only a few blocks from where I'm living now)
Taken a 4-day work trip to St. Louis
Traveled to Chicago for a 4-day work trip (which is where I am currently)

The moving thing happened unexpectedly. Steve & I have outgrown our current space. But that's nothing new. We've been feeling itchy there for quite some time, but have done a great job of managing and sidestepping it. But with our new upstairs neighbors, and Steve working out at home more and more, we kicked up the search and found a place much quicker than we had anticipated. And because of my existing (work) travel plans, it kicked everything into high gear.

I feel like life has been getting away from me for the past month. Probably the past two months really. I had a blast in Ireland and Budapest, but life hasn't slowed down at all for me since being back.

As a result, I've slipped into old (bad) habits. Eating like crap. Not working out. Putting in a lot of hours at work. Not spending enough time with my husband. It's a perfect storm of creating a crappy life for myself right now. And a time when I'm traveling and moving, I recognize that it's not ideal.

Yet at the same time, I'm trying to be more forgiving of myself. There's a lot going on. And while it's certainly not a good enough excuse to take two months to undo all the hard work and progress I've made over the past year, I need to take one step back, let life settle and allow myself room to get unpacked and situated in my new place.

I feel like once I'm in there and the travel is over, I'll be in a much much better place to start putting my health at the top of my priority list.

Here's hoping.
