Stress is a Weight Loss Killer

Sunday, January 19, 2014

The last couple of days have really sucked. I have not felt good so I didn't get a workout in. My nutrition was ok Friday but horrible yesterday. Found out some things are changing with my husband's job and that I might have to go back to work. That is my stressor. I don't want to go back to work, not because I'm lazy, but because I would never see my kids. We live in a small town and I would have to travel about an hour to work everyday. And I wouldn't get home until around 6:30 everynight. I would only have time for dinner, baths , homework , and putting them to bed. I've done that for years and it broke my heart. My little two year old would be in daycare for over 10 hours. I can't stand it. I know we could move closer to where I could work but both me and my husband would hate it because we are not city people and the school districts are not what we want for our kids. AHHHHHHHHH. I love being home with my daughter and getting to pick up my other two from school. Hopefully it will all work out and I will still be able to stay home. Sorry for the venting but I am frustrated. My husband's employer has not been living up to the agreements he makes, etc. On a good note, I did not gain weight over the past two days.

    I was a working mom my kid's whole childhood. When they were little, we did the stay at home dad thing, but eventually, both of us had to work. Now they are teens, and have practice till 6:30, and I only see them for games, sometimes dinner and when they need money.

    I can definitely sympathize. I'm also faced with this decision right now. My kids are a bit older (5 & 8) but I still want to be the one to take care of them when they're not in school. We are getting closer to living off of our credit card and I hate it. Sending prayers your way that you find a solution that's best for everyone involved.
