Ok, deep breath, here we go....
I owe a lot on taxes. A LOT. It is not fun right now to be a student who is confused about why the federal government seems to be after her. I had to cancel a meeting to deal with this. I never cancel meetings. I bend myself out of shape for others. But for once, I'm proud that I just dealt with the situation, contacted the person, and let them know this situation popped up and had to be handled. Everyone hates taxes...he understood! I'm proud of myself for stepping outside of the banner of perfectionism. I didn't like the situation, but I grew up and dealt with it. HUGE pat on the back.
I'm in week 7 of the Break-In Routine for the Body Sculpting Bible for Women. That means I go up to 3 sets on every exercise. Can you say "body in shock"? I could literally feel my arm muscles bulging. This is a good thing after an intense weekend of desserts, however. After a stressful morning, I'm thinking about heading for the 2nd workout of zumba this evening. I love punishing my body, just a little bit.
My family is healthy and I am in good health. Those who are not in good health in my family are still in relatively good spirits. Hence, I'm going to allow myself to blow out some of the stress that I'm dealing with. Its NOT life-changing or life-threatening. I'm dealing with my responsibilities in a reasonable and positive manner.
I can't do it all. But I'm happy that I can stay home this afternoon and just try to work on a few things. I'm going to try really hard to focus and not get overwhelmed. Wish me luck :)
