This morning I did get up with my alarm at 5 a.m., but I immediately drove into work to knock some things off my to-do list. I do plan to keep my appointment with a trainer this morning, but usually when I feel overwhelmed with home and work demands I will cancel the time I set aside to take care of me—not today. I am so much more productive when I get some form of exercise completed in the morning as it clears my head and gives me energy.
That's all I got. I have a lot on my plate right now—I am trying to get the plate clean and get our staffing really solid as we are working diligently on our growth plan, and could be in and/or building two more gyms as soon as November. The business growth definitely adds responsibility and stress, but I am preparing for the new demands by improving my time management, including my exercise time and the addition of a new office where I am able to be more productive and do less driving between the gyms. I am now more aware of my stress levels and continue to find ways to reduce my stress level instead of adding to my stress by overeating and gaining even more weight.
Before I started this Best Life program I wouldn't even realize I was stressed because I would drown the stress with food before I had even processed the emotion.
Here's to progress and celebrating the little achievements!
Keep moving forward,
