Stress is my downfall
Friday, October 07, 2011
So today I have school stuff piled up on me, totally stressing me out, and I feel myself falling into a familiar pit. When I feel like this, all of my great weight loss intentions seem to fly out the window. All I can focus on is trying to hold everything together, and it's like I revert to surival mode. It doesn't really matter what I eat or if I exercise, I'm just trying to get through my day. And I hate feeling this way. In my hierarchy of needs, making healthy food choices and exercising wouldn't seem to be that important, but I know in my intellectual mind that it really is. I just don't know how to balance everything so that I still make the effort even when I am as stressed out as I am today.
But I will commit to at least making sure I workout tonight after the most stressful things of my day have been completed. I'm sure I will feel better if I do. Oh well. I've gotta get back to my work. I have a big skills validation today, and then I have to give a presentation on healthy eating (ironic huh?) to 110 third graders. Arrrrgh. Wish me luck.
