What A Week…

December 15, 2012

This has been one of the most (if not THE most) stressful week of my professional life. Literally one thing after another dropped. Half the time I felt like someone was tightening a vice around my throat, the other half like someone was playing drums in my stomach. Neither feeling is very good. Know what though? I’m really proud of the fact that I managed to stay on track, not stress eat and still managed to lose 4 more pounds. I’m starting to think that a more healthy lifestyle might help one handle stress a bit better, a huge revelation I know. šŸ™‚


Anyway, I do have a couple of new recipes I’ll be posting shortly, with the week the way it was I had little time for posting. Good news though is this is my last week in the office before my annual break so we’ll see if I survive this one.


Stress Eating — Trying To Survive

September 18, 2012

The last couple of weeks I have been under an immense amount of stress, personal, work, etc, just loads of it. Usually I don’t really acknowledge it and just carry on but I have been having this intense urge to just say “to hell with it” and eat and eat. As I’ve said before, stress eating was never really my problem nor the reason I was huge but somehow it is becoming a problem. I have only succumbed to the urges twice and both times came to my senses before any real damage was done. I am starting to understand why it is so hard for folks to keep weight off who are naturally stress eaters. I am trying really hard not to become one, wish me luck, it feels like I’m going to need it.
