Whoooo, this week has been a doozy and I haven’t even done anything! I’m so happy it’s Friday, though, and 4:30 today cannot come soon enough.

This week has been crazy for me, though it’s been the “slowest” when it comes to work. I occasionally get canker sores from either 1) lack of sleep, 2) stress or 3) cool ranch doritos (it’s the WORST). Since I haven’t had any doritos lately (thanks a lot, macros) it’s got to be one of the others. I wouldn’t say I’m too tired – I get up early, but I usually get enough sleep. But stress comes in all kinds of forms. So anyways, that was a long way of telling you that I have a mouth full of canker sores that have made it near impossible to eat, drink, smile, talk, etc. I also have  slight fever and it makes my glands swell up, so yeah. Fun times. Hopefully it’s gone by tomorrow – I really don’t want to deal with it anymore.

Along with that stuff, it’s been a little rough on the work front. Without being too open (because you never know who reads this), my little office of five has some major communication issues and it makes it a bit of an uncomfortable/untrustworthy environment to work in sometimes. So, long story short, I’m sensitive and people are mean and it hurts my feelings. I’m ready for a few days off. 🙂 Thankfully one of my closest friends works in this office, so I can talk to her when I’m not feelin’ it and vice versa. Thank GOD for Brooke. <3

Besides all that stuff, I haven’t had to work at the gym all week which has been nice, but I’ve still been going almost every morning to workout. My Brittany Dawn 60-Day Challenge is over on Monday, but I signed up for three more months of training/coaching. Woohoo! This morning I did glutes and hamstrings and I feel like I’m broken.

Gym Time

Let me just say, thank God for that gym. Whether I’m working there or working out. I have some great friends there that always make me smile and when worse comes to worse, pick up some heavy weight and forget about all the other things going on in life. So grateful that I have the gym to help me through some of my stress sometimes!

So just a few more hours and then I’m out of here! I have to run a few errands tonight, but then I plan on just sitting around and being lazy.

What do you do when you’re stressed out?

    I hear you regarding the work place and poor communication:( it affects people in such a non-productive way…….boo. I am better after I can at least identify what or who the issue is with. From there I find out how I’m going to work with or around it and talking it through with someone—venting is crucial. I try to not let it take over that is fo-sho! Happy Friday!!!

      I’m totally with you on that! Unfortunately it happens often in this office, which kind of sucks, but I suppose I’m learning how to deal with different types of personalities, right?! Always a learning experience, I guess!

    Oh man, I have been feeling the exact same way this week! As in, stressful & crazy. It definitely helps to have someone at work that you can talk to when things are crappy. And yes, thank God for the gym to help try to deal with the stress! And alcohol. Haha, now that makes me sound like an alcoholic! But seriously though, it just helps me chill out for a minute. 🙂
