This has been one busy week at work and it will only get busier this weekend. With that comes stress. With stress, comes a desire to eat everything in sight. Okay, everything unhealthy and greasy in sight.
So why oh why did I decide to pick this week to not use any weekly or activity points for my #7daychip challenge? Originally, it was because I thought I was going to have a horrendous weigh-in Tuesday and needed the week to recoup.
Now I am using it as a way to show myself that I do NOT need to turn to food for comfort or stress release. Despite how appealing the peanut M&Ms may look. :P
Today, I stuck with my food plan instead of wavering and having the French fries that were available at lunch. I knew tonight would be my one night to be home so I built a much needed glass of wine into my day.
I've also found some non-food ways to handle stress: take a walk, go for a run, head to the gym, take a nap, take a bath, just sit on the couch or snuggle a couple adorable pups.
What do you do to relieve stress?
Current Goal: Survive to see Monday ... and without eating everything in sight! :)
