Stressed No More

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

I lost the one pound I gained last week. I'm trying to be excited but I'm having some apprehension that I've reached a plateau. I'm trying not to dwell on the past when I gained and lost the same one pound for weeks. Could it be that my body is holding onto the fat because I'm stressed? Feeling stressed is typical at the end of the school year. It shouldn't last too much longer; according to the kids, we have 9 more days.

On the positive, I ate on plan and walked 2 miles today. I taught my piano lesson and finished the last altered paint can.

Friday is graduation and I've been assigned security duty. Nothing like trying to catch people sneaking into the auditorium or dealing with irate/disappointed relatives!! (Seniors get 4 tickets for family/friends). I will get plenty of exercise.

    I agree with Bay, exercise relieves a lot of stress; works for me all the time :)

    Don't be hard on yourself. Appreciate and celebrate where you are, what you've accomplished with the days ahead!

    Probably better not to get too stressed about getting stressed! People can be under stress and still lose weight. The main thing to me is that stress doesn't lead to overeating and that you keep up exercise even though you are busy.
    You consistently do extremely well!

    Exercise is a great stress reliever! : )

    Good luck with the graduation and security detail! That doesn't sound like much fun, but it will be over with quickly. Do I need to come and be a bodyguard for you for the day? lol

    Good job staying on plan and getting 2 miles in!
