I've finally hit the wall

It's taken several weeks of long hours and little sleep, but I've finally hit the wall. I'm exhausted beyond words. I feel so tired, like I could sleep for weeks.

I got hit up today with a new requirement for what I've been working on. It's not something I can do in an hour, but will probably take a full day of heads down coding. We go to prod in a week, I wanted to yell, "You've got to be kidding!". Hopefully I live through this period of my life.

I've already decided I'm taking a week off as soon as this misery is over. I need some down time to just unwind at home. I can hardly wait. I want my life back!

Not much else to report. My eating is pretty good, but not perfect. No fast food or sugar, just too much of the good stuff. I'm not gaining weight, but holding steady at 173. That doesn't make me happy but right now I just can't deal with another project in my life.

It's a little after 8:30pm and I'm going to bed. My three hours of sleep last night is catching up with me. I miss the old me. I feel like I've lost myself along the way.

Hang in there, Diana. Really glad to hear you're taking a week off. Take care of yourself.

Just hold on, Diana. Relief is coming soon.

You are doing just amazingly to hold steady during all this stress.

Take that well deserved week's break and get yourself back to the cool, calm and collected lady we all know.

Then focus on that losing streak. I'll be right there with you too :-)

Hugs from the UK

You should be really proud that you aren't slipping back into old eating habits because of the stress and the hours and convenience. Kudos. Really, you are doing great, and I think you've more than deserved that time off after the prod goes out. Vee at http://veegettinghealthy.blogspot.com
