When will I learn?

Since Friday my stomach has been upset and I've been slightly nauseous. It's been pretty bad. Last night it got real bad. I had horrible gas and really thought I was going to throw up. This morning I woke up - early - still feeling pretty much the same way. I was really antsy and felt completely out of sorts. I finally ate some breakfast and that helped a lot. Then it dawned on me what was going on. Stress. I have my final stuff for my teaching certification due on what I thought was Tuesday and there is a lot to do still. Also, and I didn't want to say anything until we had a deal but, we've put an offer in on a house. It's perfect for us. It is exactly what we want, small house that needs some work but is livable, on a good sized lot. It's so perfect and it's in our price range and I want it. Bad. We were supposed to hear today but I haven't heard a word yet. I'm freaking out and that is a lot of the stress. Buying a house. Having to come up with the money. Yikes!!! Everything about owning a house is crazy stressful and crazy exciting. Anyway, that's what's eating me. Literally.

When I'm under that much stress the first thing that happens is I stop working out. Which I did. It's stupid because working out would help me handle the stress. So this afternoon when I felt like I was reaching my breaking point I grabbed the dog and we headed out for an hour walk. It worked. I know better I just need to remember. Tomorrow morning first thing - workout!!!

As I look back on all previous times I've lost a significant amount of weight, there is generally one common thread. Walking. Back aroun...
