Ship’s Log–November 10th

PicShellsMy stress level is sooooooo high. Crazy high. Usually I cope with this by snacking. And chocolate. This strategy worked when I was 20, but these days my metabolism isn’t up to burning through a batch of brownies without adding most of their mass to my butt.

Today I relied on only my long run, a cup of tea, and, later, a glass of wine to help me sleep. I actually found myself in front of the pantry a few times reaching for the salty crunchy things on auto-pilot, only to have to remind myself that making weight for March’s tournament is more important to me than a few handfuls of comfort food.
