Git Commit and Push slow

I am not sure what has happened, in a current project whenever I try to Commit and Push the "Looking for new and edited TODO items" task is taking an extremely long time and is hammering the processor.
I've tried creating a new project, however I get the same results.

I'd appreciate any insights.
I think I may have stumbled on what triggered the issue. I am writing a ~12Mb JSON file using: file.write(simplejson.dumps)....
After the process finishes, that's when PyCharm starts to become quite sluggish. That may have been what triggered the slow Looking for TODO items as well.
