You know you so want to join me for dinner, I made the yummiest chicken ever. Okay maybe not ever but pretty gosh darn close.
- Panko bread crumbs
- Pecorino Romano
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic salt
- Sea Salt
- Olive Oil
First I dipped the chicken in the olive oil, then I dipped the chicken into a mixture of Panko bread crumbs, Pecorino Romano cheese grated, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, pepper and sea salt. Bake at 375 degrees until the chicken isn’t pink anymore. Enjoy the yum! I of course had to have some green in there as well.
Combine that yummy dinner with my new favorite TV show, Once Upon A Time and it was a wild exciting Sunday night spent in my sweats.
This morning I woke up with such a strong urge to pull on my compression pants, tie on my shoes, plug in my ear phones and go for a run with the Red dog or Arya puppy. The urge was so strong I could picture myself doing it and it made my legs ache with the thought of it. So I hopped out of the bed and then proceeded to have a coughing attack. Mentally I wanted to run but my lungs reminded me they were not over this darn cold completely yet. Yuck! So instead I let the husband sleep, while I started the coffee brewing and took the dogs out.
While running errands the husband and I were discussing stress. Particularly my stress. How I seem to overdo it constantly on the stress and why. I spend a lot of time trying to control everything, situations, reactions, life in general and the stress from it drives me batty. Literally batty. A lot of the symptoms of over stressing
are the same symptoms I have been struggling with. Hmm, imagine that coincidence.
We hit some hard knocks for a long time. We made mistakes and they lead us in a bad direction. We fought, clawed and screamed our way back up over the last couple of years. It has taken hard work, sweat and a whole bunch of tears. I am literally petrified of letting anything out of my control for fear it will fall apart and fall apart hard. I have lost trust in myself to handle the things that come my way, so I spend a lot of time trying to control them or prepare for every single thing that could possibly go wrong. It is seriously exhausting.
I think my strong urges to run are my bodies way of saying it needs to sweat out the excess stress. I need some other outlet for my stress instead of holding it all in where it is just eating me alive and making me sick. So I made myself a deal with myself, every time I feel the stress kick in, I will run, work-out, do sit-ups, take a walk, sit in the sunshine or dance my heart out. I will let more stuff go and take each day as it comes. It is seriously time for me to relax again.
How do you handle all the anxiety and stress? Or are you one of those crazy relaxed people?
