(Why do I feel like I've asked that before?)
I joined a stress-buster challenge on SP. The first week's assignment is to keep a journal and make goals. I've started a paper journal, listing when/why I feel stressed and what I did about it. I also made a list of things I could do instead of turning to food.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I ate tons of chocolate after getting stressed about work.
So today I declared it "No Junk Food Thursday" something I'd like to start doing every week. I don't think I need to give up junk food completely, but I need to work at keeping it under control, so I should be able to go one day without any junk food. The problem is, I have a hard time drawing the line. Does pizza count as junk food? I had breakfast at home, then an apple at work. I was starving after work,so I stopped at the mall and got a veggie slice. If pizza is junk food, what about when it's covered with veggies?
I really just want to stay away from chocolate, candy and chips for one day.
I had a doozy of a day today. I give myself credit for only getting pizza.
I took the stress quiz and it says I have a great support system and I guess that means I shouldn't have stress? I don't know. I think some people just worry more than others. I just have to figure out better ways to deal with stress.
