Hello everyone , I am a 57 yr old nurse, I work in a skilled nursing facility and married to a retired Marine (who lost his youngest brother back in march and I fear is severly depressed from it.) . And I don't really have anyone close I can talk to or do things with besides my husband
.
I want to give this challenge a try , I am very stressed especially now with the virus going around. I don't really have anyone to "vent" to , talk to , I obsess about losing weight. being 236 pounds I lose wt then gain it back + pounds.

My daughter and grandkids live 4 hours away from me so I don't get to see them much. My step daughters and grandchildren live across the country well some in indianna and some in ohio. but still 5 to 8 hours away .
I am just starting back on my Sparkpeople page really getting into daily . I have been on , off for years .
So anyone wanting to buddy up can email me here if you like

Never allow yourself to be bullied into silence, never allow yourself to be made a victim, accept NO ones definition of your life , Define yourself.

Start over as many times as it takes . Redefine your life as many times as it takes, Never give up

I am working on the stress. Went to my doctor and she attributed it to stress which includes breaking out in hives. I have practically stopped keeping my sweet great grandbaby as there was a lot of lifting, etc. when she is here. I love her so much but have to do what is best for me now.
There are other stress factors that I am working on and hopefully will at least cut down some of the stress. It will happen in time.

I am trying to stay positive and leave negative thoughts in the past.

Stay with me team! We'll beat this.

Congrats on your weight loss. Keep on trekking. You'll get there.

When I have really busy times, I try to start my morning with some deep breathing and visualize a serene setting. After I feel relaxed I plan out what has to be done and order it so I can check off each thing as I do it. Helps to feel in control and very satisfying to check off the items.

Have a great day!

Doing breathing exercise and yoga seems to really help with quieting down the noise. It has helped me release some of my tension from stress.

Yesterday with the break in the weather, went shopping with D and GD. First time in 2 years actually enjoyed the 5 hours spent between the Mall and grocery store. Only made one purchase at the Mall yet, went for the healthy food at the grocery store and Whole Foods store.

Will actually count yesterday was a Stress Free day!

I just joined this Challenge. I get stressed a lot due to my husband's declining health, but the Lord gives me the strength. When I start getting really stressed and anxious, I go to a quiet area of the house and talk to the Lord.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
