Wow, I am miserable today.  I got myself worked into such a funk last night and this morning.  I was practically in tears on my way into work this morning.  I'm not sure exactly what's caused this terrible outlook, I mean yeah, I'm not exactly loving my new position at work and I didn't have a fantastic long weekend but that shouldn't be enough to break me down so intensely.  
When I started filling in my goal chart I realized there are a few other factors that are probably playing into my funk.  Over this past 3 day weekend I ate crap and I didn't exercise.  I'm not making a mountain out of a mole hill either, I literally didn't make my calorie goal, drink my water, get my steps or workout once.  It's crazy to think that these little life choices coupled with other stressors can send me on such a spiral.

On my drive to work (in the pouring rain) I tried to give myself a pep talk and it seems to be working, so far things aren't as bad as I thought.  I've put some new goals together for September and I'm hoping that getting back to eating right and exercising coupled with a cut/color from my stylist tomorrow and a commitment to blogging more often should snap me out of it in no time.

My goals for September include:
1.  Track all of my food every day.
2.  Drink at least 64oz of water every day.
3.  Meet my MyFitnessPal calorie goal at least 25 of 31 days.
4.  Workout at least 20 times.
5.  Walk 10,000 steps at least 25 or 31 days.
6.  Blog at least 20 times.

I've also got a lot of exciting things happening this week!
Tuesday - session with the trainer
Wednesday - cut/color with Jessica
Thursday - session with the trainer
Friday - does there need to be any other reason, it's Friday!
Saturday - Joe's off
Sunday - getting engagement pictures taken

Plus I'm squeezing 4 or 5 runs in there somewhere, lol.

Have you ever felt like the world was crashing down around you?


  1. OMG I know how you feel! This week is INSANE for me!! It sounds like you were just crazy-stressed. I know i just break down and cry for no reason when I'm too stressed out. I hope you feel better!

    And great goals for the month! I am debating on making some but I'm so busy, I am afraid I won't do them. Then again, I'm afraid I won't do anything if I don't make goals. My eating has been too much (and poor choices) on top of lack of running/working out in general. I have a better idea: I'm going to steal your goals! Modified though. Ok, off to blog. How about we keep each other accountable this month?

  2. I'm totally game for an accountability partner! I'm going to need it too because Joe's schedule isn't as conducive to running together this month. It's going to be a struggle getting those miles in!
