StyleDiary: Unhealthy Tipping Point

{Dress – c/o Warehouse; Tights – HUE (my fave!); Heels – Steve Madden}

I think it’s safe to say if there is a “healthy tipping point” then I have reached quite the opposite. I am on a downward spiral of unhealthy eating, skipping workouts and staying up late into the night working away. Suffice to say I have taken on too much. Call it workaholism or just plain dumb, but in addition to my 40+ hour a week day job I have taken on a number of freelance positions in the fashion and writing realm. I literally work all.day.long. I even started resenting my poor husband for the fact that he gets to come home after work and relax and go to bed at a decent hour.

And while I am ever so grateful for the opportunities to work in a field I am passionate about, it’s getting harder everyday to juggle it all and stay sane (and healthy!). My other (more sensible and down to earth) half keeps telling me to give something up, but the one thing I am willing and ready to give up keeps a roof over our heads. So this is my plea for help, what’s a girl to do to maintain sanity while pursuing a new career path?! So far I think I am cooking up a recipe for disaster.

A HUGE thanks to Rue La La for featuring me as one of their top 4 bloggers of the week!

  1. I feel for you! I've been there before. It is so hard when a person is trying to do so much, and it leads to unhealthy habits, especially during transition times. I hope the solution becomes clear to you. I love your blog! And the outfit is beautiful!

    So proud of you and while it will be a lot of long days right now….it will pay off in the future (hopefully very near) and then you can give up that one that doesn't fit and just focus on the ones you love. Which will probably still equal long days but they will be long days that you love every minute. Hugs!

    I had my own little moment with this last night. Came home after a full day of work and crammed in a little cleaning, some friend time, and a workout before bed. Whew! Somewhere down the line I took a job as Super Woman apparently. Keep your head up! You'll get there….and then just replace it with something else. Girls like us just don't know how to stop…its a cycle. :D . Lubbers!

      That\’s exactly what someone told me the other day…even if I quit I will just find something to replace it with! Stupid overacheivers ;) Love you!

  8. Hang in there :) Your blog is great and I love that dress- it's artsy and polished at the same time.
