One of my age old enemies has resurfaced. I had a very busy week, every aspect of my life started to fall apart, and I turned to fast food and "treats" to deal with the stress of it.
I stopped tracking, thinking about what I'm eating and exercising. My explanation was I have no time, but I ended up tired, sleeping in, feeling guilt as well as stress and no energy. Plus, without the water I've gotten used to, I had dry mouth, lips, skin and eyes.
I could not get out of bed or stay awake once I woke up, it took me all day to try to get started and going for the day. Every day was another opportunity to get something done that I didn't do.
I'm not sure what to do about my schedule and stress level. I know I'm working on saying "No" to added errands, favours, stresses and time suckers that I simply don't have time for, but I'm a "Yes" person, so it's slow going.
I have goals for the week. I will track everything, whether it's good or not. I will drink my water and no pop. I will work on one room or area a day and get it clean and organized. I will force myself to exercise for at least 10 minutes every day. I will get to the YMCA to swim at least once.
That's all I can commit to this week. My weekend plan is full of paperwork and getting all my info together for tax time - I'm WAY behind. If I get enough organized this week, I may just feel together enough to get down to lots of paperwork done on the weekend. Wish me luck. :)
