I don’t know what’s been up lately but I suddenly feel very stressed. Like there are not enough hours in the day to do the things I want. I want to work out more but I feel guilty about not being in the office when everyone else is – even though taking a long lunch to PT is fine. But I don’t want to have to shower and put my uniform back on.
I feel like all I’m doing is driving too and from work and I don’t get enough time with the kids, or Hubs. He’s working 6 days a week now, so Sunday is our only family time and I feel like that is full of chores. We haven’t been able to do anything island-y in weeks. Last Sunday, our fun time was going to Costco.
Over the past few months, I've put on some pounds to the point where I am uncomfortable in everything I wear. I've been trying to add workouts in but waking up at 5 am to work out for an hour doesn't seem like a fun thing to do. I like to sleep. I need to sleep. By 7 pm every night, I’m dragging. And we still go lift for an hour.
I hope this is all just the end of summer stress and September will be better. Piglet will have been in school for a month and Hubs will almost be done with his altered work schedule so maybe it will be better. So far, I've managed to get my hour long cardio sessions in on Monday and Tuesday and I should be able to do today as well as tomorrow. It’s the little things I suppose.
What do you do to stop stressing out?
