Hello mid-life bump

I can't really call it a crisis, it doesn't feel that horrible or that big. But I do feel a bump in the road.

My weight, mood and life seem to be in constant flucuations in the past few months. B/C is causing migraines at end of cycle, so have been playing with different types. Hello weight and mood swings; and still having migraines. I'm old!!!!!! Wahhhhhhh when did I get this old?

Along with the mood and weight is an identity bump (still won't use the crisis word, LOL). I hate my clothes, I have a closet over flowing and can't figure out what to wear. So currently scouring the net looking for ideas and basics. I need the basics. Signed up for Misssmartypants and now have a plan. Feeling a little better about it, just need to now implement it in my closet. Purge!!!

Life is going to be crazy busy now that school is starting. Getting DD to her marching band practices, football games and competitions, while still having some sort of life of my own is going to be tough. Enter FlyLady.... again. *sigh* How many times have I tried to Fly? I started my Control Journal today and will try again to organize cleaning and organizing my house and life.

Training mileage is down, down a lot. It's been the hottest summer on record here. It's hard to walk in this heat... than add in DD's marching practices and trying to enjoy the summer before it's gone. And training mileage is way down.

When I think about these issues and am in a clear mind (which I am right now), I know that exercise would help with 80% off my issues. It would help with the weight and mood, and mood would control a lot of the rest. Right? So why can't I get back into the workout groove?

I turn 40 at the end of the month. Coincidence?
