Dialing up High Stress

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

My 2 daughters cars broke first, one 2 weeks ago the other on Wednesday of last week...As I was going to pick up the 1st daughters car (who lives and goes to school out of town) , my car suddenly wouldn't let me give it gas...thank God for triple A...which by the way expired on the 26th of January. I rented a car - which was not a pleasant experience when all they had was a full size van...u probably can imagine the debacle that was when I drive a Malibu...

did I mention that with the cars broken my daughters and I had to share 1 car (yes you guessed it), the rental....The repair cost for one car was $149. the other $518 and mine $868. boy I know that mechanic is I finally picked up the last car today with money that I didn't have and quite frankly the song if it wasn't for the Lord by my side what would I do is running thru my mind even as I write this blog.....then there is always this weight thing constantly and continuously sidelining me....of course with all of this stress I want carbs......carbs and more carbs....oh did I mention on 3 different occasions in one week that 1. I had to be late returning from lunch 2. going to work and 3 leave early from my job bc of the unmentionable with the rental last week as well.....

I tell ya when it rains it pours....I just read Sadwhitewolf's blog on Sparkpeople that said she had to reboot and that this week seems semi normal...that is how I feel too...its Wednesday...i got my car back 2nd daughter got her car back I am treading lightly with the stress.... but its there....

I said all of that to say though...that in all of that constant drama (cause you know I am only sharing a part of it)...where does fitness and well being fit in? I'm just sayin.....all I want to do is go put my head under the covers...when all of the rig a ma row of life is constantly headed toward me....Now I must admit that I did fit in some walking this week and part of last week....I shutter to think...if I hadn't, I might have had a stress attack or freak out or something like that.....4 real...

My point?...I'm really not sure....I guess that I am trying to say that no matter what we go thru and some days or weeks or months for that matter are worse than others and while my well being gets puts on the back burner, cause lets be real, when you are going thru intense drama, I personally don't care about counting carbs..but somehow thru the storm, even me ended up doing a minimal exercise or spite of myself which in turn truly turned out to be my saving grace...There's a definite lesson in there somewhere and I have to admit, I will have to figure it out myself..

In any event hang in there and don't let what you can't do.....hinder you from doing what you can do....Get back to it as soon as you can....and if you are one of those who can deal no matter what in terms of taking care of yourself Anyhow ...I would love to know how you do it?

Peace and you all....including me, especially me... emoticon

    Like you said, when it rains, it pours...but on the other hand, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger... emoticon
