Stressful Circumstances

Friday, June 24, 2016

I tend to come and blog when I am having a hard time not stress eating and not in a good spot. Please don't read this if you are looking for a sunny, happy blog, I use this as a tool.

I am dealing with hormones for the first time on this journey. TOM is overdue. Yesterday I was craving so bad, and I gave into some of my cravings. It makes me so worried that I will not be successful, I know that is not logical, but I still get scared. I feel very stressed today as I am looking over my finances and everything seems so uncertain. I am trying to find that happy place where I can breathe but it is hard. The kids are not sleeping again, and the lack of sleep really gets me every time. I am writing because I need to remember why I am doing this and not let my circumstances dictate my food and exercise decisions.
It is way too easy when I am tired to not think and just eat. Cravings make it so much easier.

I took yesterday off from exercise, my knee is still hurting and I felt exhausted. Little guy was up at 4:00 AM and I did not get to sleep until one, so you can imagine. It was not much better last night either. I did something really weird, I bought a foam roller and measuring spoons and cups today. Money is tight but I wanted to remind myself that I am worth it too. Anyways, going to put the down payment on the house in about an hour. It is a big step, it is making me nervous. At least we got a house, that is huge. My husband is employed and I have possibilities. The School District also called and they are getting ready to begin my sons services, that is why we moved. At times this feels like a train wreck. There has to be some light at the end of the tunnel.

    I agree 100% our blogs are our tools. One of our best sparkpeople tools. It gives us full freedom to document exactly what is occurring physically and emotionally in our lives. It has to be honest for us to receive full benefit,

    Most people would not even attempt to look after themselves with all that you have going on right now. But you are committed, and doing the very best you can through it. I bet a lot of sparkers can relate to what you are going through. Keep sharing! emoticon
