Stress?

I've been known to deny that I'm stressed, but I'm willing to admit to it today. I'm working on a very stressful project. Not work related. I spend almost all of my free time on it. I'm getting burned out. I'm desperately trying not to freak out.

One thing that I've realized is that I waste a lot of time in front of the TV/laying on the couch. I even waste a bunch of time surfing the web. In the last couple of weeks I've barely been on ebay! Lately I watch my soap opera with Ross after work and then maybe something before bed. I don't really miss the TV or the laptop.

This got me to thinking...When I'm done with this project in a week or so, what am I going to do with all my free time? Well, I'm going to have to spend some of it cleaning. This place is trashed. Now I really see how much time I have, and I really should be spending some of that time exercising. I've been spending 20-30 hours a week on this (outside of work.) There is no excuse for me not exercising 6 hours a week! I'm hoping that I'll be productive with my new-found free time and won't go back to my old habits. There are plenty of projects that I could be working on. Things that aren't stressful. Things that would be good for me. I just need to get through the next week.
