Stressful week coming up !

Saturday, April 13, 2013

What a week ! Taxes due , A meeting I really don't want to go to but have to , My birthday ! YUCK ! and it seems like every annoying person I know is coming out of the woodwork lately! Not to mention two very busy weeks at work coming , I can feel the weight gain now ! Lack of sleep. Lack of time . Thinking to much . Looking for an easy way to comfort myself .. Oh I can see it coming ! This really scares me , the thought of all my hard work going up in smoke ! Two weeks perhaps longer of stress ! I could gain ten pounds by then ! emoticon I had a talk with myself , I had joined a really committed challenge at Spark but then ... I unjoined.. Now is not the time for this , It will just set me up to call myself a failure ! So I am taking it back a notch or maybe 2 or 3 notches . Baby steps and maintaining some form of self control ! Okay think in tiny boxes ....* they say men think this way , lol . I tend to believe that , they seem much better at compartmentalizing . First Exercise each day even for ten minutes , * it often leads to more. * Drink my water , Take my vitamins , Visualize and meditate , Journal food .Get sleep . Give myself a lot of love this week ! If anyone else is also feeling this way please take good care of yourself ! Stress is bad enough when it comes from without but worse when it comes from within ! We can do it !

    Sounds like you have a plan. Good luck and don't let the stress take too much out of you. What I do (and you can ignore this if you want) is when the stress happens I take a step back, take 5 or 10 minutes and walk it off. Think about something positive. For me that is my cat or my grandchildren or my kids. All positives and all have a great way of helping with the stress.
