Over the past few days, I have noticed a direct correlation between my stress level and when I eat in an uncontroled manner. Coupled with the fact that I don’t handle stress well, no wonder my diet is wacked.
The past couple of days I have done very well making good food choices and being conscious of my portion sizes. No, I am not perfect, but I am seeing some huge improvements.
Now I just have to figure out how to incorporate more exercise. I know it should be as easy as just getting off my ass and moving, but it is not. By the time I chase and cater to 4 kids all day, take care of the house work and tend to my husband, I am the queen of excuses why I can’t.
Mornings after I drop 3/4ths of the wrecking crew at school would be the ideal time for me to exercise, but I am a night owl and often just want to come home and crawl back into bed. I am trying to learn to go to bed earlier so that I can start getting in some exercise in the mornings.
Anyways, we got a new family member today, a little Lhasa Apso mix guy. His name is Cutter. I will try to get some pics up of him soon. And for the record, Rocco Bama is NOT a fan of Cutter!
Does stress affect your diet/exercise routine?
