This past several days have been pure hell. I don't really know how to deal with everything that's going on right now, and I am not losing the weight like I was initially. I know this is due to stress, I've always had a hard time with weight during stressful times, regardless of how I eat or exercise, this occasion is no exception.
I wouldn't say I'm putting my go-get'em on hold, but I've definitely lost steam. It's discouraging that the one thing in life that I've felt I'm finally getting a handle on has become stagnant. I seriously want to throw my hands up and say eff it, I just can't focus on this right now, there's just too much going on, and I'm pushing myself too hard. However, I'm just going to relax my rules a little bit, stop being so strict about daily workouts, meal plans, etc., until I can clear a little more room in my head without spreading myself so thin and giving up completely.
So tonight I'm going to play Just Dance (just sweat) for 45 minutes, it's a fun, high calorie-burning cardio workout for me, and I can do it while the kids are still awake, so hopefully I can get to bed at a descent hour and get for than 6.5 hours of sleep. Also, I'm making up some leftovers for dinner, a meatloaf that I froze, to take that responsibility off of my hands, too. I desperately need some R&R.
