The stress of it all!

Sunday, July 17, 2011

So I'm not losing any weight... I can't seem to stay within my calorie range no matter what I do! I'm not sure how much I'm going over because I can't seem to track it all!

I know my life isn't terrible. I have a family who loves me, a boyfriend who loves me, a roof over my head, and food in my belly. I am so thankful for all of these things but they just don't stop the regular everyday stress.

I get up every morning, or afternoon (no regular schedule) and drive to a job I hate. I work with customers who are just as bad as the job. Hateful people... I'd much rather stick a fork in my eye than help them with anything. I sell diamonds... REALLY?

I work for almost nothing. I live paycheck to paycheck. Everyday I'm wondering how I'm going to make a car payment, how I'm going to put food in the house, how I'm going to put gas in the car to get to the job from Hell and for what?

I have a mother who keeps telling me, the SEC wont approve you to be a Financial Adviser if don't do this and if I don't do that. To be honest with you being a FA has gone from an attainable goal to something I'll never be able to reach no matter how hard I try.

So now I am faced with WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO DO FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE? I think my options of winning the lottery are slim to none. I need to take business classes, try to find a new job, fix my credit, work as an intern with my mom (she's an FA), study for my series 7 exam (which I have to pass the first time), while working 40hrs a week, exercise, loose weight, try to keep the crap job while I'm looking for a new one, refinish furniture for people for extra cash, all while running a household!

I think maybe one of the reasons I am not losing any weight could be stress! Any suggestions for how to manage all of this. I'm on overload!

    Life is rough and I give you lots of kudos for doing what you are doing. To help with tracking food, keeping memo pads around helps. Dollar stores sell them three for a dollar. I would buy as many as you need to put them where ever you eat (purse, car, office, home,). Having an irregular schedule can put a lot of stress on the body, especially when you work retail and have to deal with customers. As a help for every day tasks, I keep a to-do list. You can keep it where ever you want, phone, computer, paper, which ever works best for you. I put everything for the day on this list and it helps keep my stress low b/c I know I will have it all written down and won't have to remember it. Another thing that might help is planning out your day. The night before write out times to do everything, this will help you stay organized and I know when I'm organized, I feel less stressed. I hope some of this helps and I really hope that you can find some "me" time to need and deserve it. emoticon

    Well, I think I'm just as stressed as you are but for different reasons; however, I have no idea how to get it under control. I've been trying a few diferent things. Meditiation, running, taking 20 minutes to do something for myself every day, etc. If you come across something that works, let me know!
