I’ve been stressed out lately. Really, really stressed out.
In fact, I am like a lab experiment for myself of all the ways that stress can show up in my body. It’s fascinating and awful.
It’s also reasonable due to the fact that I’m getting married in about a week, but wow, is there a way to do this without wreaking such havoc on the body?
I discovered yesterday at the dentist that the reason two of my teeth chipped (see crumbling girl entry) was because I had been grinding them to bits. Grinding my teeth into dust!
My acupuncturist, Carol Fong, has been helping me with my digestion since I have been so nervous for the last few months I can barely digest my food.
It seems that instead of lashing out and being a complete Bridezilla bitch-athon, I have lashed inward, and as my acupuncturist says so sweetly, “Your body suffer.”
I mentioned this to my dear friend Sasha and she concurred by saying, “I know! I’ve been whipping myself into a frenzy lately, just whipping myself into a froth!” and I laughed so hard imagining her adorable head of curls whipped into the peak of a cappuccino.
She has been sending me priceless emails all week that say, “Stop the froth!” and this does two very important things for me:
1. Reminds me to laugh.
2. Reminds me to slow down.
And so, I implore all of you out there, I beg you, I plead with you, STOP THE FROTH! Please! and check out this web site because it is the best thing that happened to me all week. (Be sure to read the text that goes along with each individual recipe card)
