Friday Weigh-In, Stress 1 vs. Scale 0

It's been a really long week. The stress hasn't eased up yet I have not wavered from eating clean, staying within my calories or working out. Junk food and skipping workouts would only exacerbate the stress, in fact eating well and my workouts are the only things that are keeping me sane until I can get to Boston. Stress has taken its toll on my sleep and the scale as well, no loss this week and my house is a mess. I have one shift to get through this evening then I'll have a few days off to turn the house right side up and catch up on my rest.

I'm just back from the gym and even though I didn't want to go, I pushed myself through workout B7, deadlifting 95 pounds! No endorphins today but I feel like I did something good for myself rather than just laying around stuck inside my head.

I did have a satisfying non-scale victory this week. I visited a consignment store early in the week with all of my spring/summer clothes to see if I can earn a bit of money to put toward the new smaller spring/summer wardrobe that I'll be needing. I found a pair of gently used Coldwater Creek jeans which were a steal at $5.50, in the smallest size since I've worn since high school~14p.
