Stress and fitness plans

Monday, April 21, 2014

Here I am at week 5. Those of you that have been following my blog know that I have been working hard on my fitness on a holistic level emoticon . last week went great with my workouts. I did 2 hours of heavy yard work emoticon Saturday in the place of a workout but had pizza when my daughter's friends were over. Yesterday I had sweet potato bites. The problem there is that I didn't have any healthy food in the house. emoticon Part of it was money but the other part was time, exhaustion and stress. My daughter is graduating next month emoticon , she has prom emoticon , senior project, and a big birthday coming up (she will be 18). I also tutor, am looking for a job, scraping for money emoticon where I can get it, and I am in school myself emoticon . All of this with fibromyagia and trying to stay healthy. Pain can cause more exhaustion.

The point is that stress plays a role in our fitness plans no matter how well laid emoticon . It is important to keep going though. To keep pushing with your eye on the goal of fitness. Things may seem rocky as you deal with life's stresses but if you keep returning to your personal goals you can achieve emoticon ! I write this as I prepare to exercise emoticon before taking my daughter to school. It is a lighter workout because of the heavy yard work this weekend. I know with my fibro I need to respect my body's needs. The goal is wellness not just hard workouts to pump me up (it is difficult to keep reminding myself). Wish me luck on week 5 and I wish you luck on your own fitness goals. emoticon

    I pulled weeds for over 2 hours yesterday, and my thumbs have been complaining about it all day...loudly. They are having an argument with my bum and thighs has to which hurts more. emoticon My son turns 16 tomorrow. With end of school year projects and paperwork due, I'm dealing with a ton of stress as well. Still, we press on. emoticon

    Great job staying active despite your fibro. Exciting that your daughter is graduating. A day at a time.
