Stress, anxiety and frustration always seem to go hand-in-hand for me. My goal for this weekend is to walk away some of the frustration. I'm working through personal issues that I cannot seem to resolve at the moment and my frustration is at an all time high, because I have no control over the situation.

Anyways, at the moment, I am sitting here blogging instead of getting my butt up off the chair and onto the treadmill!

I find that a great mix-tape (can you tell I am a child of the 80s?) helps me have a great workout. So, actually, I'm just waiting for the iPhone to sync and I will get started. I always seem to have a soundtrack playing in the background of my life, so I will choose songs I can currently relate to... it makes me feel like those artists are out there with the same crazy thoughts that I have, they just know how to sing better! :) At the moment I am channeling Shakira's "Can't Remember to Forget You" and Britney's "Perfume" both so juvenile, I know, but I can't help but love saccharine pop.

So, off to clear my head with a bit of exercise and get rid of, at least, a little of my frustration.

The good news is that, frustration, stress and anxiety aside, I know it's been a healthy week for me and I expect good news from my scale on Monday!

    This sounds like me exactly a year ago:/ Working out became my ultimate stress relief and focus because I felt like it was the only thing I could control and now a year later it has permanently stuck with me even though the specific difficult times I faced are pretty much over. Good job to you getting through your hard times in a positive way, you will thank yourself later!
