Just a few more weeks...

Weight: 126.27
Body Fat: 20.4% + 3% = 23.4%
Measurements: 34"-26"-34"-20"

I've been pretty quiet on the personal front lately. Work has been absurdly crazy the last couple weeks.

Worse yet, it doesn't look like it's going to let up for at least couple more weeks. It's profoundly frustrating to me because the schedule for this project is insane. I'm not even stressed that I don't know what I'm doing, which has been a problem for me in the past. I constantly feel like I'm being rushed to finish things without really thinking them through thoroughly and produce a less than high quality product, which goes against my very nature. Despite all that, I personally feel like I'm doing a great job. I don't feel like there's anymore that I could be doing to make anything "go faster."

Unfortunately,  all this stress manifests itself in my eating habits. I want nothing more than to eat an entire bowl of this:
Instead, I stick to my training schedule and try to keep my eating habits under control as best as I can. I've gone through more packages of gum in the last three weeks than I went through in the entirety of last year. Obviously I'm not doing as good a job as I could be given today's weigh-in but I'm trying and that's all I can ask of myself at this point in time.

How do you handle stress? Are you a stress eater like me? Let me know in a comment down below! :)
