Silver lining

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Today has been a rough day. In fact, I've bad a rough 4-5 days emotionally. It just seems like the stress is piling up and work is overwhelming. I just wanna run away for a few days and start over.

But the good news is, all this stress has forced my focus back to the only ONE thing I KNOW makes me feel better every time.


I ran home on my 45 min break and immediately jumped on my spin bike. I said even if I do only 15 minutes I will be better off - emotionally - than if I eat fast food or something tasty in hopes to decrease my stress.

I remember that was he turning point before. When I started Turning to exercise for stress relief instead of other things I started losing weight. Probably because I have a high stress life and if I turn to food ill be eating all day.

I also chose exercise over a nap yesterday when I was exhausted from work. I decided that endorphins would likely provide more energy than a quick cat nap. I was right. The endorphins made the rest of my day better. And id slept 7 hours that night so I knew it wasn't pure fatigue.

I'm blogging from my iPhone so sorry for mistakes.

Hope your week is better than mine. And I'm going to pray that my week makes a turn for the BETTER.

A girl can only take so much.

Oh and I have up fast good. Again. For money reasons mostly, but also because I want to lose weight.
