It's funny how the stress influences us.

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I started the year off great working for my goal. Then on Monday, just beofre going to the garage to run on the treadmil, I got a call. Turns out we are about to embark on a Custody battle with my son's mom (step son, but i have been in his life for over 5 years on a daily basis, i love him as mine). We have had him in our primary care for over 3 years now so this is a difficult thing to face. I'm certain the court will side with us, but i dont live in the clouds and i know mothers dont often lose in court. Tuesday i got to work after not sleeping the night before from all the stress... I find out that our entire tower at the hospital is being forced to forfiet extra offices to some specialty people they are brining in. SO now i am archieving and packing my office as well to move into a bigger office that will be shared between 6 people (im trying to stay positive i understand in times like this im lucky to have my job). Anyway this has all created some much undo stress this week i have caught myself trading my chicken breast and salad for pizza, and my water and black coffee for soda and coffee with creamer. I need to find the encouragement to stand up through all this and just stay on track. If i fall backwards on my diet and goals i know it will only make my all time low even lower =/. (actually writing this out kinda helps, i know im airing my dirty laundry however just blogging it and re-reading it made me feel a little lighter right now) emoticon

    You know that work out last night helped a lot. I was very tired after work and not in the mood to go but my husband was signed up too so he made me go. I felt great and full of energy afterwards. we went home and made big salads for dinner and watched the big bang theory all night.... A much needed night of just positive stuff. emoticon

    Wow, that is a lot to deal with in a short little while. Custody stuff is a pain in the butt. Hope the work out tonight gets you feeling good and motivated again.!

    Thank you all.... I didnt think anyone was going to read all of that. all of your kind words are very appreciated. I've been a huge ball of stress with all this. We had dylan for a few hours last night and it was so upsetting, he was very confused when he had to go back to his moms for the night. Your all very right thought. I need to realize that allowing my stress to show and affect my decisions does reflect poorly on me. Thank you for pointing that out. Im going to the gym tonight and making myself get out of this slump ive been in all week. emoticon

    That really is a lot of junk to have all at once,, I do see that you picked all comfort foods in stress, surprise, you needed comfort,,

    Looks like there will be some major bonding in that office..

    IMHO, you just need to be yourself, let your love and commitment show through ,, judges did not get on their benches by getting snowed by greedy,selfish people,, They KNOW....

    also a suggestion,,
    when you start to make a bad choice, keep in mind that the food is controlling you, that you will be kind of chained to it if you give in, this will show in court.. so the court thing could be an incentive to be more aware of good/evil choices for you during this time.. Use it to your advantage instead of letting it stress and depress you !

    Kind alike eery good bite you take, will make yo stand out more mature, healthy, giving, loving,etc when you need it most..
    Your biggest incentive can be a picture of this baby who needs you more than ever at this time in his life. Carry a pic of him everywhere and look at it every time you are eating or drinking..

    Take what you like and leave the rest dear.. Praying for all of you,,

    I wish you the best in both situations. Keep your head up and use your workouts as a stress reliever.
