On it goes...

I missed writing yesterday, but work has been so crazy I feel like I barely have time to pee! It is so mentally draining and stressful, and I have a feeling that contributes at least in part to my mindless snacking when I get home. I've always struggled with overeating / snacking, but when I'm stressed and worn down it seems to get a lot worse. I'm trying to do better at not letting things get to me, and taking a few minutes every hour to do a few stretches or even some desk friendly exercises... of course I usually just end up hammering down on my endless pile of things to do, and by the time I look at the clock I have to blink a few times to believe how much time has flown by! I need to get one of those apps that will remind me each hour (or at least every 2 hours). My neck and shoulders get so tight sometimes that they ache!
At any rate, let's see.... yesterday was about average I guess. Walked a little at lunch and again in the evening with my dog. I also stopped eating halfway through my dinner! I intended to only eat half, but I don't always stop when I should, so that was a major accomplishment for me! I had the leftovers for lunch today. I also walked at lunch today, and since my husband has class tonight, my goal is to do yoga and/or a body weight workout while I'm home alone.
Right now I'm going to do a few stretches and get back to work. Gotta take it one day at a time!
