When Moving Interrupts Life

I have been cranky lately. Like, really, really cranky. Life has been consumed with moving across the country: planning, getting work done on both houses, packing, packing some more, throwing things away, then packing again.

As I plopped myself down on the couch last night exhausted, I realized that I am not working out and I'm not eating well. I'm letting life's stress and a long to-do list get in the way of my health and wellness. What's the result? Simple. I'm CRANKY! I'm over-tired, not productive, and not really all that fun to be around. I know the solution is to turn this around and get back on track. Get working out. Get to eating healthy, clean foods. Get to spending some time outside in the sunshine. Get to sleeping on a regular schedule (okay, this one probably won't happen, but hey, that's life with a 5 month old).

Seems simple enough, but here's the problem. I have nowhere to workout. It's too hot to go outside, I don't have a gym membership anymore, and there is not a clear 2 foot space in my house where I can workout at home. We're trying to use up what food we have left before moving. That means lots of pasta, tacos, random junk around the house. We aren't doing much for food shopping either because we need to clean everything out. It's only going to get worse as the days progress. Probably the biggest barrier is TIME! We are NOT ready to move, I'm working right up until the last second before we leave, and this little 5 month booger is taking all of our attention and time. My heart rate is rising just thinking about this.

So, this begs the question: What do I do? I'm the queen of "no excuses" but lately I just feel like I'm full of them. I'm just being real here. I want to be the person that can say "If I can do it, you can do it." but I just don't think I can do it. Let me know your thoughts. For now, though, I'm going to have some peanut butter filled pretzels and think about everything I need to do before the 30th.
