Happy Labor Day

Sorry that I didn’t blog for a week, but I was moving and I reduced my stress by removing extra ‘fun’ activities, like blogging, to help me manage my pressure points.

I did continue to work out even when we were in temporary housing by utilizing my portable DVD player and workout DVD’s.  It felt good to start the day with high energy and doing something healthful for ME.  Several of the days , my exercise was done under the moon and stars since ut is remaining darker later into the morning now.  How cool is that?!  It was beautiful.

I stayed on tract with my eating and kept my weight and energy in my desired target area.

During this time, I had a birthday, and school started for my kids.  It just goes to prove that everyone has stresses in life.  You can work to manage your eating and exercise to HELP you work through those stresses.  Finding ways to manage triggers is a challenge.  You do your best, and that’s all you can do.
