Active! Stressed! Trying to figure it out and make a plan.

Friday, June 14, 2013

I did my third day of ST this week on the machines and it feels great. My shoulders are holding up.

I painted and gardened and have been cleaning and doing errands. My stress levels are high despite this... personal stuff going on at home. I can only imagine my stress eating if I was not so busy.

Canoe trip is a week away so last night we had one of the tents set up in the living room making sure we knew how it all goes together, making sure all the parts are there, making sure thermorests fit. One of my DD's may not use a hammock tent and may bunk with DH and I and we wanted to make sure there was enough room. It's cozy but will work. I picked out some foods today and our menu is pretty much set. My youngest DD will do all the packing and organizing to make sure it all fits in the barrels. Exciting! In the meantime I have B&B guests this weekend and an outing planned with my Mom on Saturday. DH is spending father's day golfing and taking the daughter of a friend of ours who he has been a father figure to. House is ready except windows which I'm about to start. Phew!

All this said, I know I need to deal with some of the stress and find a focus to help me with my food. All I've had today are 2 flourless almond cranberry muffins - one at breakfast and one just before lunch... very high in fiber and protein but not really "meals" and missing lunch is undereating. I'm not hungry but all this could trigger some bad food choices. I have to admit I'm worried about myself although I have not taken much time to think about it. Stress stress stress and not enough sleep. Yup, the triggers are all there. I have some chicken and broth made that I'm going to make into a stew with added veggies for dinner. I think I will aim for doing that early and have some raw veggies to munch on when the hunger does kick in while I'm cooking. First the windows. I should do some journaling while I'm waiting for guests.
