Stress – when I’m stressed out I head to the kitchen. And I eat and eat and eat. Whatever I can find, I eat. I hate that I do this but it’s what I’ve done all my life. Stress eating has been part of my life since I was a teenager. The battle of the bulge has been a constant for me, and it’s the one battle I’d like to win!
We all have stress in our lives – sometimes it takes over our minds and causes us to do unhealthy things – like eat, drink or smoke too much. I am trying to take one day at a time, meditate and do deep breathing to calm myself. It doesn’t always work but most of the times it does.
Today is one of those days – I have looked at everything I need to and have adjusted my budget and calmed my nerves somewhat – however, the fridge won so far today! After nap time for baby, we will head out for a walk so I can work off this stress!
