Why am I feeling anxious?
Tuesday, April 05, 2011
I am feeling really anxious this evening. It has been bothering me a bit since Sunday. I'm sure some of it is due to my procrastination in giving my 2010 tax stuff to my accountant. I'm even getting a refund and yet I still put it off. Finally turned it in yesterday, but....I still have anxiety.
I'm loving my job. I'm able to do more things, have more responsibility and learning new things every day about mental health and addiction treatment billing. I LOVE IT! Friday will be the end of my introductory period and hopefully I'll receive good feedback from my supervisor.
I know that my anxiety has been affecting my eating habits lately in fact I have been horrible about buying Easter candy. This time of year there are 2 of my favorites available: Cadbury creme eggs & jelly beans (the gourmet kind). Usually I buy a couple of the Cadbury eggs and call it good...not so much this year. I purchased at least 6 (150 calories an egg), as well as other candy bars all with about 120-150 calories.
In addition to this, I have been finding it hard to make time for exercise. Partly with my longer commute there is less time in the evening, and partly my husband is studying in the evenings and has additional responsibilities at work. I may have to resort to early morning runs before my husband leaves for work. We're talking about 4:30ish in the morning. I don't know if I'll be able to finish my usual evening activities (i.e. getting clothes out for everyone, ironing clothes, packing lunches, etc.) by 8:30-9:30pm in order to get 7-8 hours of sleep.
I'll figure it out & Spring is arriving which means more daylight. I still have about 10 pounds left to lose. My desire has not changed, this is just a little blip that has lasted longer than I hoped.
P.S. No soda pop today...just coffee and water!
