Stress and more stress

These last to weeks have been fraught with stress. I have been trying to keep a lid on the stress and continue my journey to a healthier me.   I know that journey is so important!   But that urge to eat me stress away has been simmering the whole time.

Work is insanity!   The changes tgg he at were made at the beginning of the month were rough.   The preparation for the changes were not sufficient at all!  Not one coworker that I have talked to is feeling ok about it!   The most unflappable people are talking about the stress and tension!  Added to that is the fact that the work load increased but the work force decreased again is not helping!

I try to remind myself daily hourly that I need to be thankful that I have a job!!!

Then in monday mom fell again!  This is the third fall in a little over three months.  The first two were bad enough but didn’t cause any serious physical injuries.  But this third fall has been tough with injuries that are making it difficult for her to function.  I have been stressed and worried  to no end.  These falls have to stop because I fear what the next fall may bring!

So you can see..,.stress galore.   I know it’s an excuse...but I fear my weight on results due to the stress.  I fear that the stress and the stress eating will affect my efforts and if nothing else about my mom’s situation is good.....her lack physical fitness should be pushing me to lose this weight once and for all....and get fit!  

The good thing in all this?  I have not missed even one day of my time on the exercise bike!!!!

Stress is not just an excuse. It is real and it is very serious. The fact that you continue to ride your bike is great. I find exercise a real stress relief. Even though the stress is there after I complete a run or whatever, I still feel myself calm down a level. I am sorry to hear about your mom. I completely understand that type of stress. Worry doesn’t do anyone good so please try not to worry too much. You need to be taking care of yourself so you can be there for her. I find prayer helps me through these times. As for work, you must shine since they keep you on the team. Your hard work there obviously paid off. I know where I work whenever there is a new change it is chaos for a while but it does finally calm down. Hang in there, you will get through this.

Stress sure can make life more diffucult. Lot of older people in my job hardly or never says anything about falling, so affrid they will end up in some nursing home that they put in adult diaper and line up hall way.
To take care of others one needs to takke care of them self.
