My life seems to run best when I have an appointment for just about everything I do, jotted down in a calendar. They have organizers for just about every type of event I participate in:
- Lesson Plan Organizer
- Workout Schedule
- Weekly Menu Plans
- Blog Organizers
- Goal Setters
- Get in your H2O Chart
Yea, I’ve used them all at one point or another, or sometimes all at once. I go back to my German heritage; an entire nationality based on efficiency and stoicism. And a touch of spunk.
Anyways, lately I have been feeling stressed out and totally engulfed with the idea of my running/workout schedule. I started to see myself falling back into my emotional eating habits, and as much as I repeated, “I choose to run, I choose to run,” I knew that something needed to change. And so I have decided to give myself the week off from a scheduled workout.
If I choose to hit the gym, fabulous. If I decided to hit the snooze button, or stay home and catch up on everyone’s awesome blogs, that’s fine too. It’s not a missed appointment (=STRESS) so mentally I’m in a much calmer place.
