Stressed and Overwhelmed
I am feeling very stressed and overwhelmed lately. I have put up part of my Christmas decorations, but can't seem to get the rest put up and it is really making me feel bad to see the boxes of decorations cluttering up the house. Also I can't seem to catch up with the housework. My island has turned from being a mild hotspot into a raging inferno. I just can't seem to clean the kitchen counters off and keep them clean. Also, I am usually really good about paying bills and balancing the checkbook, but this month I have not only bounced a check I have been late paying several bills because they have just gotten lost in the clutter. I am also stressed about money and not wanting to put Christmas presents on the credit card, but I am not sure that we will have the money to buy everyone's presents without doing so. Another thing that is stressing me out is the fact that none of my clothes fit. I know that I recently had a baby, but I am breastfeeding and I should be loosing some weigh, but I have been stuck at the same weight for weeks now. I know it is because my diet lately has been horrible. I know that if I ate better, not only would the baby weight come off but I would feel better in general, but I am having trouble resisting. Also, I had gotten into the habit of walking for 30 minutes a day, but got out of the habit. It is so easy to know what you should be doing, but sometimes it is not quite so easy to actually do those things. I better go to bed, it is really late and I have a busy day tomorrow.
