Day 8 - Stress and Eating

Monday, November 11, 2013

I've noticed I have a big connection between my stress levels and my bad eating levels. When the girls are being crazy , the house is a mess, I have a to-do list a kilometer long... That's when I find myself in the kitchen munching on whatever I get my hands on. I explain to peering eyes, "I'm so peckish right now." Actually I think maybe I'm binge-ing. Or just escaping. Even when I try to stop it, with water or leaving the kitchen, or leaving the house, I seem to find myself back in the kitchen picking at stuff very quickly. I dont deal well when I'm tired. And right now I'm super tired (which I say every time). Looks like there's some soul searching to be had :)

I think I may have injured my shoulder or arm at work, I can't tell which part yet, its sort of the extreme upper bicep area, from trying to transfer someone in a lift. I look forward to getting out of this job.

Tomorrow is a late night for work and I have so much to do. We're hoping to put the tree up this weekend but in the midst of a birthday party, Santa parade, swimming, family to visit... I dont know if it'll happen. Lets just survive tomorrow first lol Good night, sparkers. emoticon

    I notice that when I am stressed and tired I crave carbs like crazy. It is all I want and I don't care. I try to take notice of these things and change it at the next meal, doesn't always work. I hope you are able to find some balance soon. Life is less stressful here now, the house is still clean - ish. Looks lived in but not dirty nor does it make me cringe if someone needs to come over!

    Is there any way that when this is happening that you could take your glass of water or even a plate of fruit and go sit some where and just enjoy 5 minutes TASTING and enjoying and getting away from your environment? it might help, or start cleaning? even if it is just tidying some papers or sweeping the floors? Sing the clean up song and get the kids involved "clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere, clean up clean up every body do their share" or start a 10 second tidy! Good luck I hope you find an answer
