WIAW #20 – Stress eating

Welcome to the 20th WIAW!! Thanks to Jenn from Peas & Crayons for hosting this :)

Yesterday morning  started with Eddie opening the bedroom door at 6am; he had to have his cuddles and decided he wasn’t going to wait for me to open the door. The boy didn’t like it at all because he made a lot of noise.

After debating whether to have chocolate Chobani for breakfast once again, I decided to mix it up a bit and had some Barbara’s Puffins (gluten-free). I remember them tasting better than they actually did; there was a weird aftertaste.

I may have been able to resist the yogurt for breakfast, but come snack time, I wanted to have yogurt for my snack.. so I did!

On Monday, I was in the office longer than I had planned and had to run out to get lunch. I remembered there was a Snap Kitchen nearby and went to pick up something. I came out with two meals, one of which I saved for a rainy day (A.K.A. a day when I didn’t feel like making lunch ;) )

Chicken and Butternut Squash Macaroni

It was really good :) I hadn’t had goat cheese in a while, and eating it yesterday made me realize how much I missed it!

For a snack, I had some cashews prior to my run. We had our quality run; I tend to not look forward to Tuesdays because they are our hardest workouts, but since 2 out of the  4 of us weren’t going, I had to go so that my other friend wouldn’t be running alone. We did a 1.7 mile warmup, 2 miles of the actual workout, and then 1.3 miles of cooldown. I’ll admit I hadn’t planned what we were going to have for dinner, but by the time we were done with our workouts, I didn’t feel like cooking, so I said “let’s order pizza!” so we ordered from Domino’s. This is when I remind you that I don’t have celiac disease, I’m just gluten intolerant, so I’m not extremely sensitive to gluten, and Domino’s is okay with me.

It was really good.. the problem is that I was feeling a little heated and stressed about the elections, and I ate way more than I should have. I was only planning on eating half and  before I knew it, the entire 10″ pizza was gone!! Tomorrow, I’m definitely going to be a lot more careful with what I eat!

Congratulations President Obama! At least the extra calories were worth it ;)

Do you ever stress eat? How do you bounce back from it?



  1. Hola Cecy,
    No, Nunca he comido de mas por stress, pero por antojada si, me dan ataques de hambre y como y como sin sentirme llena. Eso me sucede once in a a while,pero yo lo disfruto muchísimo pues se que no volverá esa sensación hasta después de mucho tiempo ya que por lo general me duele mucho el estomago durante y después de comer.
    Estoy muy contenta de que ganó Obama. Quiera DIOS que sea para bién.

    • That happens to me sometimes too… but I don’t get the stomach pains. Maybe I should and that would teach me a lesson :)

  2. querida cecy, lo comelona te viene de familia ya sea por una razon o por otra pero asi es… cuando yo como de mas, en los siguientes dias trato de comer menos calorias y carbohidratos, asi libero tambien mi sentimiento de culpa ;)

  3. Sometimes you just have to indulge in some pizza.. nothing wrong w/ that :)

  4. Fiery Hawaiian?  That looks just fabulous!  Never heard of that kind. Domino’s is my favorite.
