I have to say that day 4 was definitely challenging for me. I went back to work today and it was so hectic. People just kept coming to my desk asking for help. I'm going to have to go in early tomorrow to get everything done so I can start my vacation. I was feeling stressed out. I ran away about 1:30 to take a lunch and went to the new TJ Maxx by my job. They were giving out some cute bags and I was glad I was able to get one. I walked around the store and purchased a couple of items. I just wanted to scream a couple of times.

I made it through the day and I actually didn't do any emotional or stress eating. I ate my lunch and didn't buy anything extra. that was definitely a good thing. My motto is really one day at a time. I'm not trying to think to far ahead. I'm focused on doing what I can to have the best day I can today. Tonight is football and I'm rooting against the Packers. I'm a Chicago Bears fan so I will always say down with the Packers.

    You just gave me a great idea .... when I want to stress eat maybe I should go stress shop! My credit card will get some exercise but at least I won't be gaining weight!

    Stress can be so hard to manage! I'm proud of you for walking away for lunch and not screaming-or even emotional eating! Keep up the great work!

    PS-share some stress relief helps if you can. I used to know how to do this but need to learn it all over again.
