Stress, Stress, Stress


Three words to describe my life right now. Work is going fantastic.. but taking its toll on me. I am getting 3-4 hours of sleep on the nights I work, and then having to work two days in a row. Ugh! On top of that my bank has switched to a new name and along with it has added a bunch of new charges... which has led to a nasty snowball affect. Money is nowhere to be seen. It is sad to see that with me working now..(to start saving money) ... we have actually gone deeper in the whole. It doesn't help that I had to pay my doctors visit and lab tests out of pocket.. On top of that our trip to Disneyland is in a week and I'm worried that we wont have enough money to really enjoy it. I am truly hating life right now.

On to the positives: I am eating less food... which is on the right track for me! One thing I keep telling myself (especially with all my negative thinking right now) is "Good IN.... Bad OUT". So I am concentrating on eating healthy and drinking lots of water to help all those bad things get out! I also grabbed my mama's treadmill and put it up in my living room so that I have no excuse to just hop on it and walk 30 min a day!

My F-I-L has his wedding in exactly one month... so my goal for May is to lose 20 lbs this month. It may be a stretch... but damn it... I'm going to try.

Hope all is well with everyone. I apologize to all my blog friends, I have not been very good at visiting you all! Know that my thoughts and well wishes are with you and I will make time soon to check in with ya!

Have a Blessed Day!

That's cool about the treadmill. They're boring, but they do make exercise convenient!!

Aw, Tigerlilly, sorry to hear that you're so stressed. I'm sure making the adjustment to your new just isn't easy on you or your family. Great job on managing to keep your eating and exercising in check throughout this time, though! Your goal might be a stretch, but you *could* lose 20 pounds in a month! Maybe I'll make that my goal, too. ;)

Take care,
PSG

Sorry to hear that you are stressed out - take 3 deep breaths!

I truely hope you have a wonderful trip to Disneyland - it could be just what you need. Just enjoy it and fit in what you can - just being there will be an experience in itself even you don't have lots to spend.

Am sure you will reach you goal before the wedding - you are doing so well - stay strong!
