You know what I do when I’m feeling stressed? I eat. No shocker there, right?
This past week I’ve found myself feeling really anxious – not hungry, just anxious – and I’ve eaten something I shouldn’t because I think it makes me feel better.
The reality? It doesn’t make me feel better at all. And when I stand on the scale and I’ve gained weight, I’m not pleased at all to say the least!
This week’s focus is finding ways to alleviate the stress in my life and I’m doing a number of things.
I’m accepting that there are some things I have no control over. Rather than worrying about what might be, I need to let it go.
I need to think not only about what I’m eating but WHY I’m eating. Have you ever seen that sign, “Call before you dig”? I need a sign that says, “Stop before you eat!”
I also find that when I have a lot of extraneous clutter I get stressed because I like order. So I’ve been sorting out the clothes that no longer fit – as well as some other things – and organizing them. I’m also in the process of reorganizing my entire closet thanks to a cool Rubbermaid product that I’ll be telling you about next week!
It is also completely gorgeous out and I need to utilize that by walking every chance I get! It’s the perfect time of year to get using the cool digital camera I got for my birthday and putting it to good use!
I woke up this morning with a sense of serenity and a focus outlook. I think I’ve found my focus again!
And keep checking back because this week’s giveaway theme is Healthy Choices so there are a LOT of cool prizes to be won!
Happy Victoria Day!
