Stress!!!!


This week has been so stressful, it is insane. I generally try hard to keep stress in my life to a minimum, and generally do pretty well with that. But this week has been the lead up to the prom. Being a control freak and having to rely on high school girls creates a very stressful situation for me. All this week I have had a headache that just will not go away. My eating has been crap. Either I haven't been eating at all or I've been eating junk. I find it interesting how I deal with stress. As I said, I generally keep stress to a minimum by either doing Crossfit and eating right, or just trying to tackle things head on. Oh, and knowing when I can't control things and letting them just happen. So seeing how the stress this week has manifested in my body is incredibly interesting. I can't imagine how people live with this all the time. And people do. Yuck....

Part of the stress was trying to figure out how to fit in 14.4. I was thinking I could do it this morning, or maybe tomorrow. Then I thought I could do it on Monday morning since results don't need to be in until 3pm. All these thoughts running around adding to the already high stress level. Then 14.4 came out. 14 min AMRAP: 60 cal row (about 1000 meters), 50 toes to bar, 40 wall balls, 30 cleans, 20 muscle ups. WTF!!!!! Seriously!!!!! I looked at that, knowing that the row would take me 5 mins or so and I would be drained and I can't do toes to bar, let alone 50...Screw it....I'm passing on this one.... I can't do that many of anything and the added stress was just not worth it. I'm over the open.... So that was one less thing to stress about.....

So tonight is the prom and after setting up last night, I can already feel the stress leaving me. I was hungry last night - haven't been hungry most of the week. I slept really good last night and my neck is starting to relax. I think once it actually starts at 6pm tonight, I will be just fine. Then it will just be a matter of getting through it and cleaning up. Then I can really begin my 2-week spring break. I am so looking forward to that. And I am so thankful that this prom is right at the beginning of break. I would hate to waste a week of my break feeling like this.

So I will get through tonight, tomorrow will be a bit of a recovery day. I may do Crossfit, I don't know. Then Monday it is back to real life. Crossfit, ultra low carb, and taking care of myself. Yeah!!!!
