Before I delve into my most recent struggles, the title for this post reminded me of a hilarious image I found on Pinterest. You guys know the song Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO, right? I can’t stand it, but dammit if it’s not catchy as hell. There’s a line repeated throughout the song that goes, “Every day I’m shufflin’.” Well, check this out:
Alright. Let’s get to it. For whatever reason, this week has been a supreme struggle. On every front. And I mean even getting out of bed has been a challenge (thanks, snooze button). I think most of it can be attributed to being a girl, but I also think it has to do with my overall life situation right now–I’m transitioning jobs, money’s tight and the bills just keep a comin’, I’m overwhelmed with all I have to get done in the next two weeks, and I think I’m just mentally and physically exhausted from all the change I’ve implemented over the past few weeks. My diet and exercise haven’t been horrible (a little more chocolate here and there, maybe a little more butter), but they definitely could be better. I know I would probably feel better if I did eat better and workout more, but I can’t find the energy to do so.
So to hopefully nip this slump in the bud, I’m going to start pre-planning everything. My daily schedule, my workouts, my meals, even my outfits. I always feel better with a bit of structure and a to-do list by my side (seriously, nothing gives me more satisfaction than crossing a task off a list). And to hold myself somewhat accountable, I’m going to post more of my meals and workouts on here, as well.
How do you manage stress and change without freaking out and eating an entire bag of fun-size Snickers bars?
