Stress, stress, STRESS!

Highly stressful day.  Woke up with a huge headache, all the kids were super crabby, my kids were buttheads about doing school (homeschool), it just didn't stop.  Plus I'm potty training 2 year old twins. My entire house smells like pee.

What was unusual was that when I am usually THIS stressed, I want to eat. Today was just the opposite.  I wasn't hungry. I was for breakfast and then not at all. I just sorta munched and ate because it was there.

I was planning to make a creamy nummy soup for dinner. I cooked the chicken and that's how far I got.  I literally had a baby in my hands the whole day. It was insane.  So the kids ate cereal for dinner (no joke) and I just had a salad with a small bit of chicken.  I put 300 calorie for it but I doubt it was even that much.  Left for the evening, just came home and I'm freezing beyond believe. I think it's supposed to be -10 tonight. It's 2 degrees now.  I so need my bed!

Today's Eats:

Bagel thin w/cheese & egg beaters = 175
Yogurt = 100
Cheese & crackers = 250
Banana - 100
Salad w/ chicken = 300

Total = 925
Tons of water
Exercise - none as I had a splitting headache this morning. I'll get it in tomorrow morning.


  1. Pretty hard to exercise with a massive headache. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. Cheers!

  2. Sounds like you had a helluva workout without an actual workout-kids are tough!

  3. Ugh, I'm so sorry you had such a stressful day!! I feel ya on the headaches, it's been so long since I've had them (like you said, probably the water!) that it was such a pain to deal with this week. I hope you start feeling better soon!

    I STILL want to eat when I stress (which comes easy for me, thus my meds), but I'm a lot better at finding other outlets some days! Hopefully I'll get there with you one day!

  4. I hope you're feeling better today. I started yesterday out with a headache too but only cuz "she's" here visiting for the month. I'm off today so went and worked out and am feeling a ton better, except still hungry beyond belief. I'm almost afraid to eat cuz what will stop me. I know, me but....
    I hope today is better, I hope the twins learn fast and that your kids want to do school today.
    It's -13 below here with a windchill of -24, suppose to get even worse as the day goes on.
    Take care and God Bless!!

  5. Oh wow, yeah, I'd say you have reason to be stressed. I will keep you in prayer, girl. It is nice not to go for the food when you are stressed, but we also don't want you going too much without food. Don't forget to take care of yourself, too. <3
