Stressed Desserts

I know it's not a funny disease, but that really cracks my shit up.

So the cashier at Duane Reade across from my office is starting to recognize me. I go there almost everyday for the most randomest of items, but nonetheless there is almost always some sort of sugar item involved (Milky Way: Simply Caramel is my new obsession).

I know, right?! I don't have a sweet tooth at all. What's up with this?

I heard somewhere sugar craving is actually linked to being stressed out. And I? am stressed out. Even more so when I realize what all those sugary goodnesses are doing to my waistline. Not to mention, I haven't really been working out (but I've decided I'm enjoying non-training mode bc in June, it's on.)

Today was the first day I didn't freak out so much I sweat through my clothes (until recently, I thought sweating when you're nervous was a made up thing. Oh, no. It's a very real thing.), so I thought I'd ask yall:

Does this happen to you? (The sweet tooth, not the sweating, although it would be comforting to know I'm not that big of a freak) How do you handle stressed desserts?

How's your week going?

  1. Oh man - first let's talk sweating. For a long time (okay, sometimes still. Fine, STILL) I would wear tank tops and/or bring deodorant next to me when I had to drive up to Portland. It freaks me out so much up there that I end up all sweaty and I hate it!!!

    Sweet tooth - I had one the other day. Seeing as I don't eat candy, it then gets harder to satisfy. I tell myself to get fruit! Yes, fruit would cure it. Bah. No way. So I did have a package of Fig Newtons in my cart. At the last second I set them down and resisted the urge. .... but then at home I found my last hidden stash of Girl Scout cookies and those puppies are now gone in my belly!
