I woke up at 5am already stressed out for the day. Now, if this continues, I will have nothing to look forward to at work-that's when I'm supposed to get all stressed and freaky! I know where all this stress is coming from: I'm doing lots of tossing and turning about career decisions and what direction I want to head to; stupid weight loss (yeah, I'm in a peachy mood today); and the big one is family stresses.
So, how has this lovely stress affected me so far? Well, I was up at the butt crack of dawn (a.k.a. middle of the night) on Monday and today, although I slept in till 5am, I woke up with a million things on my mind. I've had about 5 gallons of coffee since Friday-it's my stress reliever (HA!)- and I've been a bit piggish with the food choices. Like eating McDonalds and Wendys out of business. Pizza and chicken wings at Anthony's last night (scrumptious) and I've already got that first cup of coffee taken care of today.
The good news is I did get out of bed and went running this morning, which stopped all the stress thinking for awhile and it felt good to get out there. Three other neighbors are out walking at this time so I don't feel all alone, either. I'm going to try to make some good food choices..they haven't all been bad. In fact, I eat really well throughout the day until I get home. Maybe I'm not getting enough calories during the day and that's why I want to eat the couch cushions once I get in the door. Something to ponder.
Well, enough from my front. Time to pack the lunch and get myself organized. Later gators
