Today was one of those days, where every single minute there seemed to be something that popped up that would pile the stress on. I don't know if it had to do with it being Friday the 13th but it was getting worse as the day went on. The only thing I could think of doing, was escaping to go get a nice big cheese steak to bury myself in, to take the stress away. And as the most stressful part of the day hit, I turned to Patty and asked her to go get me something to eat. She looked at me with a blank stare and said, "What do you want? Because we have some food here already." As I thought to myself, all I wanted to say was a large pizza, but then I stopped myself. Then I managed to say, "A sandwich from Subway." I am glad that I did so, because I would have added guilt for eating something bad on top of an already stressful day.
As the day went on, I focused my attention on being able to leave work and go straight to the gym. I mentioned a few days ago that I have been finding peace when I am working out at the gym. Once 6:30pm hit, I was out the door faster then I have ever been before. I dropped Patty off at home and went straight to the gym to blow off steam. I feel much better now and I am really happy that I didn't crack under pressure today. I managed to make myself eat healthy and made the stress, of the day, disappear by working out.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
