Stress and the Food Monster

Ok, so this is not a post about how I totally blew it and ate a whole box of Little Debbie snack cakes (which has been done MANY times in the past), but rather the acknowledgement that when my stress level goes up, all I want to do is stuff my face.

I can be honest and say that I do not always have this Food Monster under control. It's only been these last 6 months that I've even come close and have often times even failed. But I'm glad when my stress level went up that I reached for my computer to blog and not to the snack cupboard to chow.

I'm a happy lady.


  1. Yesterday was a terrible day here, too, and I had to go grocery shopping and told myself, "No, chocolate won't make everything okay" All The Time. And then I went home and watched to episodes of "House MD" instead of cleaning, because everybody needs *something* to relax. At least there was no chocolate involved. ^^

  2. The food monster is terrible, it's something I wish I could wipe from my life for good, it doesn't get any easier, I don't care what anyone says, I struggle daily if not weekly with it but have learned to control it a ton better.
