I have been eating like there is not going to be food on earth for at least a decade. Since Friday evening, after the stress about my mother sort of subsided, I begun the grand fest. Friday night we ate pittas with gyros. Not too bad. Saturday, I got up at 5.45 am to go work in my dad's fish - shop, since mom was still on the hospital and would not check out before noon. Then I returned home from the shop at 3 pm, went to the supermarket, then back home, had scrabbled eggs for lunch, a bit of a nap, and then cooking begun. The gang wanted Mexican, so Mexican it was.

Angelos loved his party. And I loved the food in the party.

And yesterday, I was eating left overs all day.

I feel sick. And I am upset too. I realised last night that when I am going through too much stress, food is still the thing that I turn to.

No way I am getting on the scales today....

I'm sure it will be little comfort, but I also ate like a woman possessed this weekend. Ok, for some time now. Why? Stress. I can do the sad and not eat thing, happy and not celebrate with food thing, angry and not eat, I even conquered boredom eating! But stress eating - eludes me. And as I'm stressed, oh, I am eating. If you ever figure out a way to get round it, I'd love to know. I suppose it's half will-power and determination. With the stress, I find that I think 'Oh it will be over soon, and then normal eating will resume.' That acts as a sort of excuse. Oh well.

Fish shops fascinate me. With all the fish laid out... When you work with your father do you have to handle the fish, and gut them and stuff? Or do you perform some other essential, less icky task? It's meant to be quite a skilled task chopping up fish in the correct manner - or isn't it? Tell me everything!

don't even worry about it, it's just two days out of an otherwise healthy week. it's what you do for the majority of the time that makes impact in the long term... :)

I know it is hard, but try not to let the past 2 days ruin the rest of your week. Pick yourself up and dust off. You can do it. :)

everythings been said sweetie, dont let the 2 days ruin your week... remember that sick feeling for next time, package up those leftovers and hand them to the homeless people who would appreciate your fabulous cooking more than your scale :)

The other folks are absolutely right. Stress makes us do dumb dumb things. I should know, it's been a food-fest around our house lately. The important thing is not to dwell on it, just move on and have a healthy week this week.

Hi stranger

Sorry it has been so long since I have popped in here but things have been so chaotic both at work and at home! Where is the year going?
Glad to see you are still doing well - and we all go through stress eating days - oh well I know I do anyway!
Hope everything is ok with your Mum...
Take care and I have bumped your journal up my list so I can check in more often now...
