Stressed Out

This week I have decided to go through the veggie/fruit detox and to fast on Friday.  It should be interesting.  I will be putting fasting info in the toolbar to the right.  Our lives center so much around food, when you hang out with people you usually go eat, eat dessert or go grab a pizza.  And without having to deal with the time of making and preparing grand meals, I have more time to focus on other things in life!

Yesterday, Monday, I worked out after work and before work!  I was pretty excited.  The only bad thing was that I didn't wear my knee brace the second time, so my knee is sore today, but I did ice my knee.  But I decided to relax today!  I have been going and going and going...I have also been every stressed out because of certain responsibilities, so I decided that I needed a chance to recuperate and then get back to work tomorrow!  My roommate got out of working today, so we were able to spend some much needed time together and get my mind off of the stresses that have been bogging me down.

After my workout last night, a guy from my church was there and he also really helped bring my spirits up and motivate me.  But after our discussion, I realized how stressed I really was...I actually cried walking to my car because what he was saying was something I really needed to hear!  But enough of the sad story, I feel refreshed today as I am writing this and can't wait to get back to work! 

This post is somewhat depressing and I am sorry! But stress causes so much grief sometimes and it is good to have a break once in awhile to recenter!  I am ready to take on tomorrow with a renewed spirit and excitement for what the future holds.

Another happy note - I got a new CD in the mail today with my newest favorite song  "Forgiven"by Sanctus Real!!  Check it out!!!

Until later - CNW
