Stress slip-up

Monday, November 01, 2010

I let the week's agenda get in the way of my progress. I had a stress-producing deadline-sensitive project this week and was too obsessed with it to mind my health and fitness goals. Unfortunately, when I feel super-stressed, I tend to try to find the least stimulating place I can (by myself with a book or under the covers). I think I need to learn another new trick = when stressed DO exercise! It would be a productive way to relieve stress more quickly and not leave me feeling bad about missing my week's goals. duh! Next stress-attack, I will try to do better!

    I took Saturday to hide under the covers - got back on the board (balance board with Wii Fit) on Sunday and walked Sunday night for Trick or Treating! Exercise is a great way to fight stress - but sometimes nothing works but curling up with a good book and hiding!

Just shake it off and move on!

    I hide when stressed, too - and working out just seems like one MORE demand on the list - I have no answers, but know that you have company!

    There were a few days last week when I wanted to crawl under the covers too. I hope this week is better to you.
