This last week has been a tough week for me on a work basis and a personal one as well. My dog has become accustomed to eating whatever he likes and has now decided my shoes are his. Err....that's all I can say about that at the moment.
When a lot of these extra outside stresses start interfering with my healthy lifestyle there's a point when I have to say STOP the insanity! I have to put my foot down and recognize that its happening an to turn it around.
Today was hot, but the sun was hidden under the clouds which made my run much more pleasant. Tonight when I got home and saw my good pair of Nike Free's laying on the floor with a huge ripped out section gone I lost it. I had to get out and escape the anger I was having so rather than eating I put my Hoka One One's on and my new pair of pretty pink skorts started my run.
By the time I was done, the anger was gone and so was the stress and now I can sit back and calmly think of the solution of treating my dog's negative behavior.

Don't get trapped in the negative thoughts of “oh I have to work out tonight
” attitude think of it as the best dose of stress relief that you can do for yourself that won't have negative side effects. No doctor's prescription can do that!
