There is definitely something to the whole “emotional eating” thing, because the last couple of days have been super stressful at work.  And by stressful, I mean at lunch I had to go outside with a co-worker and yell for 45 minutes.  I don’t yell, I’m not a voice raising kind of girl.  In fact, I’ve only once in my life had an argument where I so much as elevated my volume (and boy did he deserve it).  But, I yelled.  Then I went to The Container Store, because organizational doodads always make me feel calmer and more centered.

Right, back to emotional eating.  All I wanted was gummy candy, but I didn’t have any.  I’m serious about shedding my sugar eating ways.  Instead, I stuffed myself with sushi.  I was starving!  Somehow, I’m pretty sure my stress level has a direct effect on my appetite.  I guess the key for me is keeping my stress in check (hence my upping my yoga practice recently).

Deep, calming breathes.  Soothing thoughts.

The stress has blown over as of a few minutes ago, I’m hoping so will the little demon in my belly that wants to devour all things made of candy.
