Stressed Out

The school year has just started and I'm already feeling my stress level increase. No, it's not the school supply shopping that worries me anymore. This year I have a High School Senior to deal with. This time around, it's my daughter. You would think that since I just went through this 2 years ago I would be more calm, but I'm not. The College application process is long and tedious and hard on my nerves as well as hers.
We have our college advisor meeting next week- not our first or our last. Normally, I would reach for an Oreo or the  M&M bag, but then I would just be stressed out and feeling fat. Any suggestions?


  1. I am now following your blog. Found you on MBC. I'd love a follow back at

  2. I am a stress eater, it's strange, but for some reason when I am really stressed, I seem to crave chocolate or junk food. I am not sure why. Even though I KNOW what is causing the craving, it's really hard to ignore it. Sometimes going for a walk will help. You could try putting some music on your ipod/mp3 player, and take a brisk walk. Try to drift off into the music and let your stride fall in time to the beat. I find that works for me, maybe it could work for you, too? :)

    Found your blog via a post on Mom Bloggers Club.
    Decided to follow you now. Looking forward to reading more.
    You're welcome to visit my blogs too, if you would like.
