Hello there lovely...

Hi my name is Jess and I feel like I have been a bad blogger this week!! Ok I know its ok because you all love me so much that you will let it slide ....this time. ; )
So this semester is already knocking me over with work but I am fighting hard to keep on top of it all. I am trying to keep myself from getting stressed. I read this great quote on stress and I thought that I would share it with you

"Stress comes from knowing what is right and doing what is wrong" Larry Winget

For example you get stressed when you eat mcdonalds because you know you should have packed a sandwich. Think about it. I get stressed about school work usually because I procrastinate. I sit and think "Oh, I should be doing homework but instead I will watch tv...oh I am so stressed" At least that is how the quote really applies to me.

Ok I'm going ot do a little GBU (stolen from this adorable little mouse) for my weekly goals, ready?

Good- I have easily stayed with in my points this week
Bad- I have done very little exercise
Ugly- I am back on the diet coke.

Good- I have been eating breakfast daily
Bad-it makes me really hungry for an early lunch
Ugly- I resorted to slimfast one day

Good- I packed my lunch everyday while at school (even ate it too)
Bad- I forgot my lunch yesterday
Ugly- I chose not to eat lunch instead of eating cafeteria food

Take care and remember that exercise relieves stress way better than ice cream!!

I love your edition of GBU too!! And the quote on stress is awesome and completely true!! Procrastination is like emotional eating-->feels good in the moment, but then leads to consequences that more often than not make the whole indulgence less than worth it.
