Hmmm stress eating is that emotional eating??
Sunday, March 21, 2010
I'm currently in my third week of law school (straight to 2nd year argghh) and the workload has been overwhelming to say the least, but I have made a great friend who is much like me and we can already end up laughing together over nothing and proper laughing with tears and all :) She is also doing ALL the papers (which in our school there are only about 5 of us crazy folk) so together we are going to face the workload which is helping A LOT!!
I feel like I am on top of it (mostly) and my house is tidy (mostly) with healthy food ready to reheat in the freezer and I have a test tomorrow which I have studied for (mostly) so why the heck am I overeating?
I have been consistently losing weight (WooHoo) and eating healthy but this week the calories have been upscaling themselves (notice I didn't take responsibility) without leave from me. One night was a birthday party where I consumed lots of empty calories in alcohol but it was worth it!! Next day it was hangover cure of McDonalds for breakfast. Some of it is staying late at school to study so pizza for dinner but I'm beginning to wonder if I have simply taken too much on and the stress is why I overeat.
Any thoughts people??
Do I just need to get myself even more organised? Or is there something deeper I need to work on?
Is stress eating emotional eating? Cos I'm pretty sure I'm not emo
