I caught the end of Dr. Oz. today. It was about weightloss and stress and I thought I that would be perfect for me to hear. Well, it sounds like stress itself can cause weight gain by raising cortisol levels. Not because you're moving less or eating more, just simply from stress. Well $#%@! I've got some stress right now. I don't know how to deal with the stress & unfortunately Dr. Oz didn't help me much. I don't usually have much stress in my life so I'm pretty unprepared. Maybe that explains why my scale hasn't seemed to have gone down any the last week despite still doing what I'm supposed to be doing. It actually appears to have gone back up a pound. It's either that or I've already hit a plateau. Is that even possible this early in the game?
Then tonight I get a little bit more bad news. It seems some individual is trying to make my family even more miserable than we already are right now. While I know they're actually out to hurt my brother, they're hurting us all. I'm livid! So rather than finding this person & punching them in the face (figuratively) I'm whining here. I just can't remember being so mad.
Well I had a busy day & didn't manage to get in my exercise yet. So I think my best option tonight is the PM Yoga. Hopefully that will even help relieve some of my stress. Maybe tomorrow I'll go buy a punching bag... NARF!
