Weight loss this week: 0
Weight gained this week: 2 lbs
Total weight loss : 27 lbs

As you can see from the picture above that is how I am feeling. When I am stressed I just need people to leave me alone. Me and stress do not mix well together somedays. There are days that I can handle it but this past week is not one of them. Read on to see for yourself.

This week has not been the best week for me. I am literally stressed out with school and everything that is going on in my life. I literally have 5 projects due every Monday of every week for one class and 2 projects due every Thursday for one class. For the people that don't know me that well I am going to school to get my BSN in nursing. but for me to do that I have to get my associates in science degree first. So right now I am in school part-time getting my pre-requisites done. Taking 2 classes this semester has killed me. I was doing so good until last week. I did get to do any workouts at all. My eat habits weren't all that great and stepping on the scale this morning only provides what i already knew. I need to get back on the wagon. I gained TWO pounds. Though I know it's not a lot i do feel like I failed in away. I know I'm only human and not perfect so I am brushing it off my shoulders and will get back on track. This week is really stressful since finals for my one class is this Wednesday. Well I hope everyone has a great week. I'm wishing I can fast forward to the weekend so I can get over this bump in the road.

Question of the week for mamavation:
 What is your favorite workout to get the heart pumping?

I actually have two favorite workouts. My hip hop abs dance DVD and my EA sports active workout that has a combination of everything. I love feeling my heart race and know that I'm doing something right. What is your favorite workout?

  1. I have the same problems with stress. You can overcome it though! You can beat it by getting a good workout in. That's my secret that I have noticed works every time!

  2. You've been doing such a great job, don't be bummed about one bad week! It sounds like you had a lot on your plate, you'll be back on track soon enough :)

  3. I'm wishing you best of luck for your finals and hopefully things start falling back into place after.
