Why can’t I just be one of those people who stops eating when I am stressed? Two weeks of stress and they are down 20 pounds. I am stressed and I am lucky if I don’t gain 20.
Yesterday was quite stressful and it made me mad, which in turn made me blast my music and hop on the treadmill for sixty pretty intense minutes (for a fat girl, lol). Because I decided to go with loud over the angry music I put on my iPhone on shuffle and left it attached to the speaker. This meant there was no changing the songs and I am thankful for no Christmas songs popping up. hmm, do they have a iPhone remote?
Anyhow, it led to a song that was sad and me jogging on the treadmill with tears streaming down my face like a blubbering fool. Anyhow, I actually enjoyed that sixty-minute workout. Today, on the other hand, was a completely different story. I love Taebo, but I had to push myself every step of the way thru my 42-minute tape. Believe me, I was ready to quit at minute 7, 10, 12, 15, 28 and 35 before I got with it. The clock goes so darn slow through those workouts.
I didn’t meet my water goal but didn’t complete fail it either yesterday. I hit about 100 out of 129 ounces. I will take it.
The idea of eating healthy was great all day until dinner and then I struggled yesterday falling off the tracks. The best part of it was that I tracked all my food and I was only about 100 calories over so it was not something I want to do often, but it was pretty much a wash.
There are going to be days that are just plain difficult to get through and that completely suck, but if I don’t give up I will eventually get there, right? Of course, I will just like every person before me.
Today has bee great so far with water, food, and exercise ( minus having to push through it). So I am curious about how everyone else copes with stress.? Any healthy stress relief ideas out there?
Please share I would love to hear your thoughts.
