I Want Some CANDY....

Monday, June 18, 2012

because I am stressed. I hate when this feeling comes over me. My daughter's tuition is due, my school loan payments are due, I just acquired a new platform that I am unfamiliar with and 12 new projects to boot, college tours for my youngest daughter and NO ADULT vacations in SITE!!!!

I am drinking water, I am working out, I am even breathing, I have even tried sugar free chocolate (that's the biggest joke on the planet)..not helping! The problem is sugar and carbs have always been my escape in times of crisis. That's why I am here. I'll go for a long walk and if I still want candy, then I have a teeny tiny bit.. emoticon

    Glad you resisted, soror!
Wish I read this before those 2 ritas I consumed.
I probably would've reconsidered.
Thank God there's a fitness center in this hotel.

    I don't really know if this will help but try a banana or some watermelon I love, love, love chocolate and it helps me hope it helps you. emoticon

    Everything in moderation - but if you can't handle it, don't have it. emoticon

    I am stressed too and trying not to eat as welll. My stress is not like yours but ironically enough, we are both planning to do the same thing. I am going to pray and doJillian to work it out and if that doesn't help then I am going to pray some more and go to sleep. Things always seem brighter in the morning. I never had sugar free chocolate, my taste buds have always rebelled at the sheer thought of it. Maybe you can take a mini vacay with the upcoming holiday next month. I do this sometimes when I need a break and trust me, it helps! So hopefully tomorrow or tonight you will be in better spirits. Hang in there! emoticon emoticon

    Pray sister, and I am praying for you. Have some almonds in the meantime.
