Quick Mamavation Check-In

Another week has passed and I'm still in the middle of this waiting game.  Things have gone radio silent at work and that hasn't been great for my stress level.  Instead of assuming that no news is good news, I tend to worry.  Despite the worrying, I've done a good job with my workouts and made good food choices.  I'm working out to fight the stress and I'm 100% positive that is what is keeping me sane right now.  Every time I freak out about the possibility of not having a paycheck in a few weeks, I lace up my shoes (or promise myself that I will once I leave the office) and burn those feelings away.

Last night, I reached one quarter of my annual mileage goal, which felt good.  I like knowing that I'm on track with small milestones.  I'm working towards 300 miles for the year and hit 75 miles.  My elbow and shoulder are healing, so I'm back to doing pushups. I had to take this week of from Pure Barre because of work scheduling conflicts, but I'll be back at it next week.  Hopefully I can fit in some Tae Bo this week because punching really helps combat the crazy feelings I'm having right now!

What about you?  Are you having a good week?  Any suggestions for fighting stress?  It's going to be a tough couple of weeks and I can use all the advice I can get!


  1. I'm a worrier too, so I'm super impressed that you're holding on to good choices in the midst of stress. Hang in there! Great job logging the miles.

  2. Hang in there Momma-no words of wisdom other than waiting and job stress sucks and I am sorry. Sending you a big Mamavation Hug

  3. So sorry to hear about your job but keep doing what you are doing. Keep your head up and use exercise as your stress reliever. I know thats what I do and I always turn to P90X kenpo because I get to kick and punch and it makes all that aggression come as well. Good luck with your job and praying it all works out to your benefit.

  4. It's great that you are turning to running to keep from worrying. Keep it up! Nothing will be gained by worry. I wish the best outcome for you.
