Stress

10 Jun

So I might have created my own monster with the Green Monsters! Andris is now a big fan and insists that I make them for him, he wrote a list of his favorite foods and put the GM as number 11, behind the nutella and lasagna of course!

I have a lot of real life stress at the moment.

With deciding upon graduate school…..

planning my trip home for a month….

trying to arrange a last minute trip to Munich…

Now the me of the past (and we are talking as recently as two months ago) would have went on a binge. I don’t know when in my life I started the dreaded cycle of turning to food for comfort, but it was a major comfort for me. It was a comfort I didn’t even realize I was partaking in. Luckily I haven’t reached for the junk. It is scary for me even sitting here that I am aware that I could turn to food at any moment to help me deal. I am having to make a conscious effort not to eat my way to comfort.

What do you do when you are stressed?

    It depends on how stressed I am. If I just get a little overwhelmed or frustrated, I sleep. But if I'm TOO overwhelmed, I can't sleep because I can't stop my mind from racing.

    Hi there! I found you from the blog hop. I have banana and milk smoothies all the time. I should try adding spinach. Did you add fresh or frozen spinach?

    Ana- I use frozen spinach but a lot of people use fresh. We don't have fresh spinach here and I found that frozen works fine.
