Do as I say, never as I do

Stress SOS

Posted by AllieB on September 28, 2010

I just sent a casual email to a friend mentioning what I’d had to snack on since around two this afternoon, and now I feel like a total heifer.

The list includes:

A bag of these peanuts:

Two Coke Zeros.

A half-glass of Cabernet (NOT normal behavior – we were tasting wine for our upcoming work event – Lacy can attest)

Thee Lindor truffles:

And – last but not least – a breakfast sandwich (bacon, gouda, and fritatta on an artisan roll – delish) from Starbucks.

It’s a bit excessive. I’m incredibly stressed out with various things, mostly work, and I’ve turned to food. I’ve asked other people what they do when they get stressed, and I’ve yet to achieve enlightenment. One person suggested taking a walk around the block, but I don’t really want to do that. Someone else suggested putting a lock on the refrigerator – not only did I find that somewhat offensive, but it also wouldn’t necessarily stop me as there are many other avenues thru which I can procure my snacks.

I mean, I’m obviously going to go for a run after work, which will help – according to science, exercise helps – but I’m talking more along the lines of stress relievers in medias work day. Suggestions welcome.

    I feel like such a heifer. I had two bowls of Special K, 3 pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, 5 peanut butter M&M’s and like 3 pieces of licorice.
