Happy Tuesday, GymGeeks!
Thanks to everyone for bearing with me on the timing of posts. This whole migrating to a WordPress.org format has been a total pain the ass from the start, but the hard work (and psychosis) will be worth it, since I will have more access to making this thing prettier and more user-friendly (including the option to post comments via your Facebook accounts).
Despite the craziness of trying to get this done (on top of the day job of voicing scripts for the college AND dealing with the cable company over a bad internet connection), I’ve yet to fall into the trap of eating due to stress. That’s what I wanted to touch on today in the primer…see? I find a way to make my rants make sense!
A lot of people fall into the pitfall of eating not because they’re hungry, but because life has them stressed out. For a scientific reason that I can’t really explain without having a PhD, your brain produces the same responses for chemical reactions due to both stress and hunger. You, on the other hand, have the capability of telling what the difference is.
So when you find yourself in times of trouble (MusicGymGeek Problems), walk away from whatever’s stressing you out, take a deep breath, re-prioritize and get back in there. You’ll save yourself unnecessary calories and gain a little bit more sanity. Besides, it’s been proven that stress hormones do lead to less efficient metabolism. Translation: stressing out enough can help pack on the pounds.
That’s my rant for today. Be on the lookout for a recipe (I’m keeping it a surprise, but I’ll leave hints on Twitter to get you guys following), but most of my day will be focused on making this site amazing for you guys. You’ve proven that this is a worthwhile venture with all the new follows, view of my interview on YouTube and pictures on Flickr and I won’t let you down!
