Stress Eating…or Not Eating
I just got in from a 4.2 mile interval run, during which the sky spit on me the entire time. I think that warrants another notch in the ole Hardcore Belt, don’t you?
Ok, ok. So hardcore is relative. Your hardcore might not be my hardcore. I get it!
Last night after work, I headed to Meyer with one mission on my mind: pick up a carton of Ball jars.
I’d about had it with my pantry. The various opened bags, bulk bin baggies, and disorganization of it all finally put me over the edge. So for an hour I took out all the random baggies and emptied them into mason jars and labeled them.
I’m not all the way done, but it’s a darn good start!
Besides, mason jars just look SO cute in pantries. Don’t you think?
Do you have a pantry organization system? Now only if there were something I could do about my spices…
This little project also took my mind off of some heavy things weighing on it last night. I won’t get into the deets here on the blog (personal stuff=personal life, yah know?) but I was pretty upset about something. Like my girl, Kacy, when something’s on my mind that I’m worrying about, I let it fester and grow until it really affects me.
I think this is one reason why I tend to be so decisive. I hate worrying about the unknown. At least when it’s known I know which side to worry about! haha However, one way worrying affects me is my squashing my appetite. Some people are stress eaters. I’m the opposite. I eat when I’m happy, but my appetite is no where to be found when I’m stressed or upset.
Alas, come 8:00 it’d been 8 hours since lunch, and Shane made me some dinner.
He cooked me salmon on the grill (in tinfoil, in a marinade of mustard, honey, canola oil, and lemon) and I topped it on a bed of veggies.
At the last minute, I had Shane stick a couple sliced fresh mushrooms in the tinfoil to be cooked with the salmon, and it was THE best idea EVER! The mushrooms caramelized and got SO soft and so delicious.
Mmmm Over top, I made up a dressing of apple cider vinegar + mustard + honey + sea salt.
And then to top it off, I had half of a healthy nutty cookie bowl
I’m still super obsessed with them!
Done and done. And I’m feeling a lot better this morning
I’m glad you guys liked yesterday’s post on energy expenditure and how much spontaneous activity impacts our metabolism! It’s interesting stuff – and a good reminder to moooove around!
Well I’m running late! Have a happy Thursday, everyone! Sorry I didn’t post the ab post this morning – completely ran outta time. It will be next
What have you done that’s hardcore lately? It doesn’t even have to be fitness related! It can be standing up to a “bully,” asking for something that takes some guys (regardless if you got it or not!)…anything!
Do you tend to eat more when stressed or upset? Or does your appetite vanish when things are looking down?
