OK, so it's been two weeks now that I've had more stress than normal at work. Looks like eight more weeks. If you read last weeks blog you know that I didn't handle it too well in the beginning. So how am I doing now?
I tried a new strategy - working out instead of eating fast food (well, as much fast food). Out of four days this week I have worked out three. I plan on going to the gym at lunch today too. I still need a bit of chocolate in the afternoon but I'm better than last week.
Where do I get my motivation? I actually have a workout partner. Oh, I can talk her out of working out if I really want to but this week I have tried to stick to the plan. I've been very busy so sometimes I work through lunch. I just try to make sure I spend at least thirty minutes in the evening getting some exercise. What's funny is I may not really feel like it but once I'm done I could do more. Endorphins I guess.
So, how are you handling your stress? What do you do to let off steam? Share your stories with me. I always need inspiration!
