Why do I never think of Exercise when I'm stressed?

Friday, July 12, 2013

Today dealing with a lot in my house and on top of that my little one I swear is starting to teeth big time now. She just wanted to be held almost the whole day and anytime I put her down she was fussy and whinny. I could not wait till my hubby got home.

Finally after getting her off to bed and relaxing with my hunny I felt tired but still felt stressed like far from relaxed. At 9pm I told my hubby that I need to have the tv tonight for a little bit to workout. He kind of said do you really need the tv? I thought you did exercises without it? lol I laughed and said hun I need to watch a dvd unless you want me to go in our room and try to workout while our baby is sleeping. he said nah here ya go TV's yours lol. I got in 30 mins of uninterrupted workout in. And than took an uninterrupted shower and got dressed and of course than baby wakes up again lol. This time I felt more relaxed happier content. And enjoying holding her and looking at her her precious little face as she eats.

Don't know why I turn to food instead of exercise when I'm stressed. Food just doesn't do much for me. Do I feel happy after? nope. more Satisfied? nope. Do I feel happy after exercise? I feel great. I feel like I accomplished something. I feel my worries the weight on my shoulders just go away. Like a more relaxed happier me. Not sure why I turn to food rather than exercise. I guess I need to remind myself that every time I grab something.

"You will feel better by going for a walk. Or getting a short workout in. You don't need that food. Remember How good you feel after you workout! LIke you can accomplish anything!"

Now to put Notes to myself around the house. Hoping that'll work :)

    When the baby fussy like that during the go for stroll in the stroller. This way you two can get a workout. Hopefully, this will relax the baby. I'm glad you was able to get 30 minutes done.
