S-S-S-Stress

Yeah, I don't know what's up with the weird headline of my blog entry - my brain is fried today and I couldn't come up with anything.

Lately I have been stressed with a capital “S.” My job, which I truly love, has been a little crazy and I’m starting to feel its effects, both emotionally and physically.

Yesterday I noticed that my insatiable appetite for all things chocolate had suddenly begun to wane. WHOA!! This is warning sign that something in my life is just not right. Chocolate is an integral part of my everyday life and when I turn it down, I know something is amiss.

Then last night although I was exhausted I tossed and turned all night. The thoughts in my head simply would not turn off no matter how hard I tried. Even my beloved sleep prescription of hot chocolate and an awesomely bad cheesy movie didn’t even do the trick. Sigh…

Today I’m irritable, worn out and just plain tired. I’ve been doing fairly with my eating habits (incorporating margarine into my diet whenever I can, of course!) and I’ve been working out in the morning before work.

To help combat my stress I’m thinking I will now try taking up yoga, which is rumored to help reduce stress by calming the body and mind. I’ll keep you updated as to how it goes.

It’s almost Friday everybody – hang in there!
