Cheesy Breaded Chicken Breasts

My mind is racing 100 miles per minute over everything but this website lately and I apologize. Usually when I am stressed out I eat, but I’m desperately trying to lose a couple of pounds so instead I’ve been shopping for clothes. I am an addict when it comes to shopping, yet I have done my best the last two years to quell that urge. That streak all fell apart last weekend and now I cannot stop myself. I have baskets, yes BASKETS, full of clothes in several online retailers websites. I feel guilty for buying anything else, so I just stare at them periodically throughout the day.

Being stressed means that I somehow squander away hours of the day without even knowing it on things I cannot even remember dedicating time to. I have a serious problem. Life may be better when we close on this house, but I am not holding my breath.

Sometimes I think life will be better tomorrow, but I have to remember my life is today and tomorrow is not promised. I know the grass is not greener on the other side; and, honestly, when I start thinking that way it only makes my stress level rise. Anyway, usually when I get stressed I eat. I told you all that, right? I tend to gravitate toward unhealthy things, which doesn’t help me in life at all. The foods I choose tend to be macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes & gravy, pizza; anything with cheese, starch, and carbs really does the trick. Well, I attempted to make my choice slightly healthier than usual. Take a look at these Cheesy Breaded Chicken Breasts.
