Money, Economy, Anxiety...it all sucks!

There is just too much going on in the worldwide economy and my own personal economy right now. I will be feeling the pinch of the economy soon in my own job and I gotta tell you it really sucks. I feel a sense of anxiety coming to work everyday. I so wish I could stop all this financial crisis from happening. I also have to stop listening to NPR, because it is super depressing. Yesterday they had more about Maddoff and had his victims talking about how they are surviving...and it is not well. These are people who were once pretty well off. It is so sad.

Anyway, I have decided to turn some of my anxious energy into something more positive. I am going to weight train more and up my protein consumption to try to decrease some of my body fat. I have body fat of an obese person according to my body fat scale. This is not something I am proud of, but I think it is a result of my liquid diet I did years ago. I lost so much of my muscle and I don't think I ever got any of it back. I also hope that this is a channel for my anxiety. I just can't take being so anxious anymore. I need to burn some of the energy off. If I am tired, I won't have energy to be anxious right? A win win as far as I see it. I will keep you updated.

Is it Friday yet?

It is Wednesday. I came down with some kind of stomach flu this weekend, which really sucked! I wish I could of enjoyed my weekend more. Anyway, I made up for not eating that much this weekend yesterday. I was so hungry and hot I had to stop for ice cream after work. There is very little ac at work and the ac in my car broke so it is super hot everywhere. I am a bit annoyed by it. Life is more enjoyable with ac in your car. Oh how I dream of a newer car with air! This week it is 90+ degrees and humid.

So I am reading a new book that I will post a review on as soon as I finish it. I am almost done and will probably finish it tonight. I am still hovering around 185 with my weight. I am hoping to start seeing lower number soon, but I didn't exercise much this week, some of it because I was feeling ill.

It is Friday and I am feeling good about my eating and exercise habits once again. We have gotten back to cooking and things feel less stressful. We went to the dog park last night and walked around instead of laying on the couch! It was super hot and humid but so much fun. I didn't even feel that tired afterward. It is so weird how you can be exhausted after work and think that you can't do anything....then you do something and you have more energy.

I am a little bummed because I forgot my beloved iPhone today. I so wish I could go home and get it. It is such a huge part of my life. I never thought I would be so attached to a phone. I just hope the day goes by fast because I need my phone and I also need the weekend.

Weekends and sleeping and relieving stress

I haven't been around for a while. My life got a little to busy. I was also super stressed. I finally feel like I have had some relaxation time. I did a "Healthy Paws" walk this weekend with my friend and our doggies. We only signed up for the 2 mile walk, but then realized how short it was and decided to keep going and do the 4 miles. It was fun but I was exhausted, mainly because I got up at 6 a.m on a Saturday. After that the bf and I just had a nice relaxing day and ordered pizza for dinner and got 2 movies off of pay-per-view. It was great.

It is Monday and for once I didn't hate the idea of coming to work. I think I needed some down time. I also went for a 4.5 mile interval walk with both doggies last night. I couldn't believe the puppy made it. She ran almost the entire time and was super cuddly and sleepy afterwards. Of course they were both super energetic this morning! I guess I didn't push my older dog to far.
