My good friend, Stress

So, earlier this week I was about to post about my stress level and how it's counteracting my overeating (seriously, I never quit eating junk...it's bad). However, yesterday I put on an outfit that should fit, and it definitely did not look good. I could still zip the pants and all, it just looked like it was a size or two too small. Not good.

Since discovering that stress does not serve as a substitute for a good diet and exercise caused me to think about what stress really does do to me. Obviously it encourages my overating. It also makes me shut down in a way. I just pretend that stuff doesn't need to be done and then I don't do it. For instance, there are several emails in my inbox that I need to read and respond to, but I just don't want to. Our house is an absolute disaster. I need to work out. I need to sleep more. I need to do so many things, but the stress paralyzes me to some extent. If I ignore all the things that need to be done, maybe they'll go away.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like anything is going away. I'm just going to have to face all the yucky stuff that I don't want to do and just do it.

Ugh.

I hate being a grown-up.
