Don't know what's gotten into me this week. Actually I do. Finding out I owe a ton of taxes and now have to have even more taken out of my check so I don't owe again next year started a cavalcade of stress that is reeking havoc with my weight loss.
I never really understood the nuances of taxes and why we can't just have a set rate so we could plan for it instead of all the frenzy of looking for deductions to save us from bankruptcy. Who goes to the store and has to negotiate how much tax to pay on an item? Let's see, if I give a can of green beans to charity I can save 1% on my spatula but only if I have 2 kids in college and make less than $24k gross. But I guess that's another story.
The bottom line is that STRESS is reeking havoc with my weight loss and now I'm stressing about the fact that I can't stop stressing and the stress about stressing is reeking havoc with my weight loss. I'm going to the gym!
