I am dealing with a great deal of personal disappointment in my personal life which is affecting my exercise intensity and energy level. I am getting divorced, and the stress affects my IBS. Historically, I've always depended on exercise as a stress relief. To not get that immediate release now is a challenge to me. I have not given up on the process.
The disappointment of the process and details (people deal with this every day whether it involves financial losses, divorce, death, job loss...) can erode your resolve to keep healthy and eat clean. I'm using all my skills NOT to let that happen. I challenge you to do the same if you are also facing a difficult time.
Let's work together to rise above these difficulty that we face. Let's make our best health the priority.
