Therapy Today

I am seriously overwhelmed with *stuff* I am supposed to be doing and have put off for weeks/months. Some of it is time sensitive and has got to be done ASAP but my head is swirling with everything and once again, I feel almost paralyzed with indecision! Where to begin? What's most important? Can I get it done? (And I apologize for the emails I have not responded to yet. I read them all and LOVE getting emails, but sometimes I have to put off answering for a rainy day).

The good thing is that I am eating on plan and feeling emotionally good (although stressed) today, so I am about to start tackling things one at a time. If I feel I cannot decide what to do next, I am going to close my eyes and point to a random thing on my list and do that.

Scale is still not budging, but I know it will eventually if I keep at it. It was 177 a few days ago, and has been 178 for 2 or 3 days now for no apparent reason (except hormones).

Today I am going for my first physical therapy appointment with a new therapist at a new place, for my knees. I am very excited, nervous, and hopeful. I really would love to be able to be more active. Right now I can walk 2 miles, or bike 15-20 minutes indoors, or skate slowly at a rink. That's about it. Hoping the PT will help me strengthen and ramp it up, but my knees are in terrible shape so I dunno what's possible. I will update though! The appointment is an hour and a half long. Wish me luck!

When I get overwhelmed with "stuff" that needs to be done, I eventually put it all in a pile and start working from the top down. I disregard time tables and just work from one thing to the next.

Of course, housework and lifework are different than paperwork, but the concept is the same. Just do whatever is staring at you now and then move on to the next thing.

Good luck with the PT!

Whenever I feel overwhelmed with stuff, I start by making a list (including urgency, deadlines etc.). And then I just start doing stuff. Eventually, the list will have vanished.
