Work stress has killed my eating and sleeping this week. I had several days in a row of good eating last week with lots of activity and solid sleeping, but now here I am feeling puffy and run down and just generally blah.
I know that stress makes me eat, but it also makes me cranky and possibly a little depressed. I fully intend to get back on track today though. Hopefully a solid workout and fewer french fries will lift my mood.
My husband has also had some work stress and when we talk about his day, I start to feel his stress too, you know? Like sympathy stress.
The good news is (or is this the bad news?) that since I've cut out chocolate, I haven't had an episode of my heart racing. ALSO, I haven't had to take any heartburn medicine. Apparently I really have a sensitivity to chocolate and either I didn't put two and two together or maybe I was in denial over it. Either way, I feel so much healthier not eating it.
