Just Keepin' It Real

Every day I feel like my blood pressure is going up. Rapidly. So many things going on in our lives right now, thought of baby is on the back burning unfortunately, I just cannot seem to relax. My mind will not shut off. My shoulders so are tense all the time. I have a constant headache. I cannot seem to stick to consistent working out or clean eating. I have one too many drinks each week. I am mentally exhausted!

All of this is so unlike me. And I am so not a fan! I want things to be 'normal' again!

By the time I get home, all I want to do is veg on the couch in front of the TV. I don't even want to think about what to cook for dinner. It seems like putting that damn piece of chicken in the oven and cooking veggies is far more work than it should be.

I just want to order take out. Or have someone bring us food.

It is crazy how one thing in your life, can ruin so much more. This particular event, that I will be sure to explain eventually, is changing the dynamic of so much. Honestly, there is no other way to say it, than it just sucks! Big Time!!

I have never been one to let stress take over my life in the sense that I am so not myself. But it is. How does one fix this? Or do I just let it ride out and go with the flow?

Eat whatever we pick up or can manage to put together from the fridge.
Work out only a few times a week.
Drink a little less often.
Take Motrin or Aleve or whatevertheheckwillgetridoftheconstantpouding!!!!!

I feel so lazy. But I'm too tired to do anything about it. I feel like a fatass. But I'm too tired to workout. I feel overwhelmed, so I drink a glass of anything to help relax. Then after said strong drink I have no more brain function for the night. Ok, that is a little extreme, but it's close.

And that concludes the bitch-fest. But ya know, sometimes we just gotta!

Just keepin' it real!

Lindsay! What the heck is going on? I really feel for you and am hear if you ever want to vent, talk or anything. How you're "coping" sounds very similar to how my brother copes with stress. It's actually identical and I really truly hope things take a big up swing for you soon!!!

It's completely normal to get stuck in a rut sometimes. At least you know you're in one, that's kind of like the first step to getting out of it!!Chin up girlfriend!
