Stress...what to do?

Yep...I'm stressed.  I, along with my dear friend Kathy, are the chairpeople for a huge fundraiser at school and we're a little bit behind.  Especially in ticket sales.  And...I also co-chair fish fries during Lent for our church.  That will be here before you know it.   So I have tasks/assignments/responsibilities for both.  On top of day to day stuff.  So I'm a little stressed!

I think everyone does something different when they are stressed.  I typically eat.  Chocolate, preferably!  I am going to write an entire blog sometime soon on my love for chocolate.  It makes me feel good.  No does!  If I can't have chocolate, then it has to be some other kind of sweet treat.  You can say I have a sweet tooth.  I love sweets...cookies, cake, candy, especially chocolate!  So when I am stressed, I usually eat something sweet and feel better.  Not such a great thing to do for my body, I know. instead of eating chocolate, I rode the bike for 30 minutes.  10 miles later, I felt much better.  Hmmm...I might be onto something here.  Maybe I will try exercising instead of eating when I am stressed.  I'm not sure if that is totally going to work though, because I am still thinking about that chocolate.  But instead, I am going to try to think about all of the good I just did by riding the bike. 

What do you do when you are stressed?  I also tend to get a little snippy.  My family takes the brunt of that.  Unfortunately for them!  Chocolate, however, seems to keep my snippy comments at bay.  Yes...I love that chocolate, but today, I love the bike!
