Stress has never been my friend
You know when I went from a size 14 to a size 18? It was when I spent a year at an incredibly stressful job and add to that getting engaged, planning a wedding and being a newlywed and the only source of income. I was so stressed out that my shoulders would get so tense it would put my left arm to sleep. Once I figured out I wasn’t getting any better I decided to quit. Wish I could have quit the weight too. Instead I kept on a steady path to more weight. Granted my life changed drastically from college student to graduate to wife and mother. Is it too late to undo the damage?
I weighed 243 this morning when I checked. Did I mention that we had to dig an 8 ft hole on the side of my house this week to fix a leak in my foundation around the main water line? Yeah I only made it to curves Monday morning. Tuesday I started digging the dried clay that comprises the top foot of our soil. Wednesday I dug for six-ish hours and called that good. Did I mention that the non baked clay requires you to stick your shovel in the dirt and then scrape it off the shovel? Can you say STRESS? I also am not eating enough calories according to my fitness pal app. To be honest my body was probably in starvation mode before I skipped lunch that one day.
Well the hole is now tarred over. We’ll get our
filled in Monday if all goes according to plan and pray that fixing the sprinkler line fixes the problem we are having with our back flow preventer.
I will still try, I can see where this week may have gone awry. As normalcy descends I hope to include more workouts and continued calorie counting. Here’s to normalcy in your life as well!
