Stressed. Tired. Overwhelmed. Eating too much. Not moving enough. Emotional.
I am also…
My lack of a weigh-in post on Friday wasn’t intentional. I was on a business trip to San Diego and had no access (or time) to go to a WW meeting to weigh-in. I took my laptop with me, thinking I’d have all kinds of free time in the evening to blog or watch tv or read. HA! This trip was the most exhausting work trip I’ve ever been on; I was so emotionally drained by the end of each day that I was probably asleep before my head hit the pillow. I really did mean to post but honestly, I didn’t even know what I’d say then. I’m still not sure what I’m trying to say now. Despite the rain and traffic and working until 6:30 on Friday evening, I was able to meet my dear friend Mae, her adorable boxers, and even more adorable parents. I can tell you that Mae is even prettier in person and just as funny and sarcastic. (You’re probably already following her on Twitter and already reading her blog, but if not, check them both out!)
As if you couldn’t guess, things haven’t been going so well for me in the weight loss department recently. I had a great week and a half when I started WW again, but after my weigh-in, things started falling apart. I can’t publicly spell out exactly what’s going on, but it’s mostly work-related and money stress and some unknowns in my life. I don’t know if I’ve just not been so stressed out before or if I’ve all of the sudden become a stress eater.
I expect to see a gain on the scale this week but started tracking again today to at least prevent an even bigger gain. I am still trying to figure out my plan but I’m keeping it basic since I’m already overwhelmed with so many other aspects of my life. I’ll let you know when I figure it out.
I’m trying to dig myself out of this funk and am so thankful for my Twitter friends for their support and encouragement. I know that I’m not alone and that lots of us are stressed out and dealing with a lot right now. So if you’re also stressed and feel a bit out of control…let’s hang in there together. Let me know you need support and I’m here for you! There is no shame in asking for a pep talk or help from others going through the same things. None.
Despite the funk, I know that I’ll be okay. Because I am not giving up! Thanks for not giving up on me either.
