I have 4 days off till I'm back in work so I'm trying to get back into a little routine of working out on my days off. This week's rota for me has been a bit odd, one day in the next day off then back in again then off again so on those days off I've been exhausted and resting. Whereas I'm off for 4 days now and have no excuse to not work out.
I also went to a stress management course the other day, I found it really interesting, showing the sciences behind mental health issues related to stress but incorporating common sense and tactics in dealing with stress, my problem is I can (to a certain extent) let go of some stresses but it is when other people start bringing up the stress related issue and telling me how I should feel bad and so on. That's when I start to get uptight again. But I found this course very helpful to remind myself that I shouldn't let people affect me in that way and just take what they say into account but so long as I can justify what my actions are and the intentions behind them I don't have to beat myself up all the time about things all the time.
I was under a lot of stress with placement this week for a few reasons that I can't really go into.
But it resulted in me not being able to keep up my fitness and healthy eating routine. However because of the stress I've lost 5 lbs lol! So I've learned my lesson, don't stress too much or you loose weight. The stress has mostly been dealt with so I'm gonna try to get back into a good healthy eating and exercise workout routine again. My whole body is sore and stiff from the lack of sleep and so on so I'm starting off with 10-20 minutes of Yoga or Pilates a day then try to bump it up a notch each week.
Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches and take what life throws at you and adjust accordingly to your lifestyle. If you don't feel in the right frame of mind mentally (and not the lazy frame of mind) or physically you sometimes need to listen to your body and rest up. Don't over do it, especially whenever during great amounts of stress.
Starting the Pilates Summer Series. This is exciting me as it starts of gently and each time gets a bit more intense, which is exactly what I need at the moment. I am very excited to start this and get back into shape.
I'm going to Spain this August so I am super pumped to be going somewhere sunny this year! :D
It was a bad start to the month but I'm gonna own this month! I'm gonna make the most of learning opportunities and experiences. I have my final nursing assessment ever at the start of next month so I will be in the right frame of mind! :D :D
I am a 25 year old nurse, who is trying to find herself. This blog will contain epiphanies I have, my yoga progress and other such things. Enjoy. :)
