What? Where Did That Come From?
Wednesday, February 01, 2012
I basically only had about 6 hours of sleep last night after 2 glasses of wine and spending a nice quiet night alone with my husband (with 5 kids in the house, that is rare!). I have 2 projects at work in crises mode, plus a new project that is starting up. I was running around like crazy, multi-tasking like no one's business, and not getting stressed or emotional, when it hit me: I am actually coping with this huge mess of issues, and I am doing it successfully. Not once did I begin to crave food (admitted emotional eater) or just shut down and not deal with everything. As soon as one thing ended, I grabbed the next thing and kept it going. The best part is I was in a really good mood through it all. I felt great, energized, and ready to take on the world.
It has been so long since I felt like that, and it just felt so good! There are so many benefits to this new lifestyle, not just seeing the scale go down.
