It's nothing new that I'm not good at balancing acts. I'm really really good at concentrating at one thing at a time, but that's about all that's in my repertoire. I can focus on running but then my eating gets out of control. I can focus on dieting, and then I lose weight, but I lose steam for running. I can focus on my schoolwork and get straight A's but then exercise and weight loss don't seem so important anymore.
I've been trying to focus on all three, and all three are suffering. This is in addition to everything else that's stressing me out lately. My kids are especially needy.

We just got through Christmas, and our budget is severely suffering, and now I have to pull off a financial miracle for my oldest daughter's 13th birthday. My husband is stressed out about work. I have really stupid neighbors whose children are always causing problems with my children, and I've been letting that get to me too much. There is never enough time to do everything that I want to do. I think I may have just gotten my first B or C on my test yesterday. I can't concentrate on anything.

It's really not as bad as all that...I know this. It's LIFE and I LOVE life. But everything is really getting to me lately, and I'm just going through my days with a huge knot in my stomach. And quite honestly, I just want to hit
