I'm not one to stress all that often, but I am highly stressed lately. And it's killing any good habits I may have had or tried to have. Mostly it's sucking the motivation out of me and it's frustrating.
Reasons for my stress? #1- I'm broke. But really that is okay. Pay day is Monday. So that will be fixed. #2- I am waiting to hear from a potential job opportunity that would have me moving. #3-My roommate is moving out. So I need to find a new roommate asap. But I don't want to do that if I'll just be leaving. So I'm completely at a standstill right now. I'm stuck. And I have no control over it.
I am a rather patient person, but these things are killing me. My whole life is on hold waiting on just one phone call that says yes or no. And my advice to anyone in this is go for a run! Go workout! It will make you feel better for at least an hour! And it does, and I did it. But it doesn't help me curb my stress eating... which is worse. Or my stress exhaustion.. which kicks in during daylight but keeps me up at night. Not fair. Which then causes my stress upset stomach. So now I won't work out or eat well because I really don't feel good. UGH. (bitch session now over!)
I'm thinking October 1st to get myself straight. I will move forward. I will find a roommate. I will forget about the potential job. I will grocery shop and meal plan and start back on my dedicated workout plan. I will focus on myself and finding new hobbies in the area and saving money and just losing weight.
I'm supposed to be in my Phase II. I'm supposed to be trying to lose 15lbs by October 31st. I need to start actually doing it. I actually want to hit my goal this time :)
