The Busy Life

A post from my phone. 

So, I started a new job today. And it requires a good amount of travel and flexibility as far as my schedule goes.

This is hard for me. Cause guilt and regret seep in when I can't make it to the gym. Both for the money paid and for the lack of exercise. Even with having finished a 10K this weekend.

Tried eating healthy but with Easter gatherings and now work lunches... It gets tough.

I can't help but get stressed and upset when I can't do things the way I want them done. To control everything. 

And yet...  I'm forgetting that this is not how life should be. When I get home from work I shouldn't worry about working out. Or what I did or didn't do.  I should enjoy family time and focus on health which includes mental health.

Tonight I'm not gonna worry about the upcoming busy days and how it will get in the way of life. But rather I'll focus on enjoying the first day of a job, spending time with my family, and living... Free of guilt and regret.

Cause while I may regret a workout. I'll never regret precious moments.

    Hope the new job turns out well.
