I’ve had the strangest, most terrible case of anxiety for the last two days. Normally, I cope pretty well through venting to friends or exercising, but today I just felt like I couldn’t get a grip on my emotions! I know the reasons why I’m anxious — it’s all stuff in my life that is totally out of my control. Which makes it worse!
Knowing that exercise is a great stress relieving tool, I diligently set off on my 5.0 mile run. But, I couldn’t find my rhythm, every song was irritating me, my knees felt funny…. yada, yada, yada!
And THEN, I was crossing the street, and a truck almost HIT me — missed me by a few feet! This (of course) only made me feel more stressed. But I finished strong…. somehow!
- Duration: 50 minutes (5.0 miles)
- Calories Burned: 400 (estimate)
Husband got home and I begged him to give me acupuncture. He made me do 40 minutes worth of deep-breathing…. It helped a lot, actually.
Oh, I ended up skipping today’s 30 Day Shred. I missed the first day after 7 straight days. Honestly… I just really didn’t want to do it today.
OK – VENT OVER. Thanks for listening (if you did). 🙂
Today’s afternoon snacks…. Grape Nuts and skim milk:
Two mini pieces of WW toast (only 50 cals each!) and pumpkin butter:
Dinner was a little salmon, roasted vegetables, and brown rice. Just a little… wasn’t too hungry. Husband made it. :) Lame pic, sorry!
And a glass of milk:
OK – time to curl up in bed, watch The Biggest Loser, and sleep!
Do you ever get all crazy anxious too? How do you cope? I kind of just stumble around all teary-eyed. :)
