I am stressed. So much so that I can feel the tension building into knots in my shoulders and neck. Before my turn-about I would have gone straight home after work, plunked myself down on the couch and eaten what ever was put in front of me. I'm exaggerating, but sadly only slightly. Now I'm looking forward to hitting the gym after work and taking it out on an elliptical and some free weights then maybe stretching in the sauna after. It's such a better way to deal with stress then before, and I'm looking forward to it.

    I understand about stress. I am at work now, it is to be busy where I work soon and I have a major headach. I work evenings then when I get home bed and then up with my two daughters to get them out to school. I used to, a few years ago, have the energy to workout, had some stress or depression issues and that changed. I am too having the turnaround as you called it.
    When stressed or not sure why I am emotional eating I could also just plop dowm on sofa and grab whatever. Even tonight, feeling the busy time approaching and someone selling candy for their kids baseball team I was tempted to buy some chocolate. I did not, they just left and I am drinking water and some diet pop.
    I have about 40 pounds I want to lose and wish I could take a walk to feel better not possible right now. So here I type and wait for the phones to ring and be busy when I just want to go home.
    Knowing that you want to work out now to reduce stress makes me want to do the same. Home and maybe just some stretches before bed should help, as long as I dont wake the hubby...lol
    Keep up the good work!
    Deep breaths help too, throught he nose and all that! :)
