I'm very happy that after a day of "OMG are you kidding me stress eating" the next day and today I carried on like nothing happened. If anything I increased my exercise to combat the stress work was causing. Now that is change!
I've started adding small weight lifting to my daily routine and I really enjoy it. I had picked some up a few months ago but left them in a suitcase and forgot I had them. Yes I admit it, I don't always unpack after a trip if I know I'm going to head back out the door.
There are lots of tightening going on in our household and I like it. My husband and I agreed that it's time to look at our budget and increase what we save each month, so far so good but then again, it's only been 2 weeks. I was smart and left ample room for shoe shopping. Although my husband pointed out that my shoe shelves are all full, silly man, he thought that meant I had enough shoes, I suggested that just meant I needed more shelves.
Work is work and there's a struggle going on to who gets to have me on their team. It's silly, when I looked at the new workload they wanted to give me I actually laughed. I could do this in an afternoon, why on earth do I have to devote my all my time to it. Now it's a game of who can scream the loudest, I'm betting on my existing lines of business. This means that travel is still part of my job, I don't lose anything that I had before I just get a bit more work to do. I'm fine with that, all of my teams are over goal and I needed some more challenges.
I'm looking forward to the weekend, I have my grandson on Saturday and yes, I'm taking him shoe shopping. He's just starting to walk and I want to make sure he's got good shoes. On Sunday I'm spending the day helping out my son. I am so proud of him. He works full time and goes to school. One more year left. Unfortunately his apartment and pantry look like he works full time and goes to school. He's in need of some mom time.
So looking back at the week. STRESS was the name of the game but it didn't win. A good, healthy lifestyle stood firm pushing away all those nasty old habits trying to bang down the door. I feel like I should be wearing a white hat. Oh...that would mean I could get new white shoes!
