8:30 am: I woke up this morning with anxiety. My chest is tight, my head is hurting. I stood in the shower and just cried under the water. I really did not want to go to work. And even though I was already late, I sat in my truck in the school parking lot for a few minutes to get the energy up to go inside. I have first period planning. I am sitting here now typing this instead of doing anything school related. My head is hurting. My chest is hurting. I don’t know how much more I can take. Counting today…11 school days until spring break.
10:00 pm: Stress is sabotaging my weight-loss. I did so good yesterday with eating. For work, I only pack healthy things in my lunch box, so I have no choice but to eat healthy. Problem is, when I get home, there is a multitude of bad food available (because of my kids and husband). Last night, after my daughter’s school soccer practice, she and I ate an entire box of Froot Loops. I would like to say that I ate half of the box, but I am pretty sure that I ate more than that.
I eat when I am stressed. Can you tell?
