When the going gets tough...

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

The "tough" write a blog instead of crying!

I feel like crap today and I'm trying to pull myself out of my pity party. I haven't had a workout longer than 20 minutes since Friday and I think it is making me feel less than top notch.

I have bad indigestion due to drinking coffee on an empty stomach this morning because I forgot my granola bar when I went to a meeting. Having a little coffee is usually a treat these days because I rarely have it anymore. The buzz is usually a good thing, but in combination with stress at work I think it just made me jittery and more anxious. I don't have guaranteed employment after June so things are a little crazy. Change is not fun and there are definitely lots of that happening right now! The unknown is scary - but I keep telling myself that these changes could be for the better.

Most importantly I'm still healthy and otherwise happy so I should focus on the positive, forgive myself for feeling bad for a day, and move on. I need to acknowledge what I can actually control in my life.

    Your body may be craving exercise and that could be contributing to your mood. Are you running a race this weekend?

    On the job front, you're such a positive, warm person and you will excell wherever you work.

    Yup, crummy days happen. I'm freaking out because I didn't have time to work out yesterday and probably won't today or tomorrow. But I am reminding myself that those days are only a fraction of my year, let alone my life.

    So much easier to give advice than to follow! ;-)

    Awwwwww, I'm sorry you're having a tough time. WWHBD? What Would the Honey Badger Do? :)

    Liz, sorry you're having a down time. We all have them but that doesn't help you one bit. The fear of the unknown is a huge stressor and when it's your job it's even worse. Time to break out the stress relief tools and sharpen them up.

    Just remember, this too shall pass.
