Tuesday I was home again from work. I woke up without a voice and had been up all night coughing. I made a doctor appointment, went back to sleep and slept until 11am. Doctor diagnosis? Bronchitis. Fun times! My lungs are clear, I feel okay despite the coughing (not run down at all). She gave me antibiotics but said she wasn’t sure they’d even help. I decided to take them (even though I hate antibiotics) just in case I also had a sinus infection and woke up today feeling a lot better. Hmmm. I guess they worked?
This week can take a flying leap as far as Michael and I are concerned! It’s just been one crappy thing after another in a litany of crappiness and illness. Michael and I are good, don’t worry. Sometimes your partner needs some cheering up. Even though I was sick and not feeling great last night, I did my best to cheer him up.

The smoked gouda was delicious and the sausage was a bit spicy. It really cheered him up.
Now to the stress eating…Being sick and having massive stresses this last week led me to make some not great choices yesterday. I woke up at 11, skipped breakfast and ate the last of the brownies instead. Probably the equivalent of 1.5 brownie. I ate lunch and then was good the rest of the afternoon.
Then when I was making dinner I ate one of the cupcakes I made. Like seriously. Why? I was making dinner. I’d be eating it within 20 minutes…I couldn’t resist a cupcake and wait until after dinner? Ugh. And guess what? I still ate dessert!
After dinner Michael and I both ate one brownie cupcake (the last of them) and then we split one of the chocolate covered fortune cookies. Bad, bad choices on my part.
QUESTION: Are you a stress eater? How do you prevent it?
