Whew. What a week. Here’s what I learned about myself this week: I like to eat sugar when I’m stressed.
Monday, Meghan was on a two-hour delay for school. The meant my blog-working time was cut from the normal 2 1/2 hours while Luke is at school to about an hour. Then during that hour, WordPress was barely working, I had an issue with one of my plug-ins (some do-ditty that lets you print my recipes), and basically got a day behind on everything.
So Monday’s post didn’t get published until Tuesday. Not the end of the world. But Tuesday was a snow day for both kids and everything snowballed (pun intended) and I just felt frazzled and behind on life. Writing it all down makes it seem petty; I know there are bigger problems in the world than having a pile of dirty laundry on the floor, but I felt stressed and I hate that feeling.
I wanted a piece of chocolate cake; I’m not going to lie. I don’t think I even knew that about myself. This challenge is helping me see that I do turn to sweets when I’m feeling anxious/stressed/frazzled/chaotic.
This time, though, I didn’t. I did eat one too many dates stuffed with almond butter. But still. I didn’t eat the chocolate cake I wanted to run out to the store and buy immediately.
I’m not sure if I would have resisted the urge to eat sugar this week without this challenge. I’m so glad we are doing this together. I can see that my brain needs some reprogramming and I think that’s exactly what is happening.
