How to derail a workout

I got up this morning with the plan of having my coffee then going to workout. I was sitting at my desk reading blogs finishing my coffee when the phone rang. It was my Realtor. Our offer had been accepted. We are buying a house. Holy Crap!!! I immediately started thinking about all the things we had to do and I started looking into getting them done. I, of course, do not want to wait until the last minute but I don't need to do everything right this second. I quickly realized that I am sick to my stomach and have a raging headache. I think a little corner of my mind thought there was no way they would accept this crazy offer. But they did!!!! I'm buying a house and I think I need to go throw up now.

We've been really watching our money the last year or so because we knew we were going to do this eventually but this is a little sooner than planned. That's what happens when you find the perfect house, you have to jump on it. So there are a few more hurdles we have to jump over in order to make this happen. That's okay, we have almost 60 days to get everything done and I have three weeks off soon. That's good because there will be a lot of packing and sorting and selling things. OH. MY. GOD. How am I going to do this?? And, I joined this weight loss challenge on Facebook so I'm supposed to figure out how to lose belly fat while I try and jump through hoops and get ready for a big move!?!?!?! OH. MY. GOD. What the hell have I done?????

December has not started as well as I hoped

I had planned on tracking everything I ate in December and that has just not happened. I have had so much to do and been under so much stress I've hardly had time to eat let alone write it down. I've been so busy I didn't even leave the house on Black Friday. Not even to 7-11. How sad.

The exercise has not been happening much either. I have been walking Axl so at least I'm doing something. But that is all changing tomorrow. I am going to work out in the morning, eat well, track everything, and get back in the groove. Yes. I'm actually looking forward to getting back to working out. So I need to rest tonight so I have no excuse tomorrow.

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!!!

Social media holiday

I've decided to take a break from social media. I spend far, far too much time just scrolling through Facebook. Yes, I get a lot of in...
