Grumpy pants

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I am struggling today. Simple as that. And it's not anything diet related. It's my mind. But I can't tell you why. I wish I knew. I am not depressed. I am just simply unhappy today. I woke up in a bad mood and had no reason for it, other than PMS. When I got to work I quickly realized how on edge I was. Every little thing is getting to me. I met Bill for lunch and I noticed myself being aggravated with him, for no reason at all. I tried not to let it show so hopefully I played it cool.

When I went home last night I had intentions of making some Fiesta Chicken and relaxing. After work I stopped by my aunts house for a little bit then had to go grocery shopping so I didn't get home until about 8. I sat down and watched an episode of the Golden Girls while eating dinner. I stopped for Chipotle since it was so late and knew I wouldn't be making a big dinner that late. After I finished eating I was just sitting there, bored and decided to go on a short walk. I was really sore so I didn't expect to last long but once I got out there and moving I felt a lot better. It was getting dark but I still wanted to get in at least 30 mins of activity. So I kept walking. I ended up walking 40 mins and felt really good. When I got home I was burning up so I sat in front of a fan for a little bit to cool off then headed to bed. I was surprised during my walk. It was like I was just letting the stress out with each step. I felt so relaxing.

Tonight I had planned on running to the store for a few items then heading home to make dinner and go on a walk. Plans have changed so instead I am going to go home to change, go pick up the kids from my brother and go to the park. Tony isn't feeling so well and I can tell Erika is stressed and needs a break so I thought I'd try to help them out. I hope to take them to Thomas Cloud and get a lap in, with of couse, a pit stop at the play area for them. Lets just hope it doesn't rain. Well I guess I didn't really have a whole lot to discuss here. Maybe tomorrow will be more interesting.

    Sounds like you did a great thing to relieve the stress--by walking it out. Awesome way to deal! Hope the next few days are more relaxing for you.

    I find that when I'm stressed, depressed, not motivated, if I can just get up and go do something active my mood instantly improves! Good on you for getting active despite the little voice that tells you that you don't feel like it!!
