WEll yesterday, I was so slammed with appointments and things happening that I didn't eat well. I went through the drive through at McDonald's for a $1.00 McChicken sandwich and unsweet tea and later on, an ice cream cone. What happened to my healthy plan? STRESS!!! And too much to do. I can't and won't complain about having too much business. In August, my business was deader than dirt. Soooo slow I wondered if it would ever pick up again. September was better and now October is slamming and it proves to be even busier in November. You just have to take it when it comes and keep up.
But I must say, I felt completely stressed yesterday and that is what leads me to food and to eat something not quite right. No time to prepare and at night, who wants to do that? I'd rather veg in front of the TV or mindlessly pass fabric through the sewing machine. Thinking about the weekend with the football game on Saturday, I'm wishing my husband could find someone to take with him. I know I would enjoy it but I have so much to do, I just want to stay home and regroup.
I am an interior decorator and people are wanting to redecorate and now. Coming up with ideas sometimes is a challenge. I have to sleep on it.
I had been doing so well on the Sonoma Diet and fell off somewhat. But I'm not giving up. I'm going to try and make each meal and each day count. Today is another frantic day and I'm booked up through next Tuesday and people waiting for appointments! And I don't have any employees and I don't plan on getting any. I'll just hunker down and press on.
By the way, I'm loving it in spite of the stress. I told a client yesterday that I'm having more fun now than I've ever had. Credit card is paid down to half what it was at the start of the year. And I'm enjoying the job. I don't sound like it but I am just venting. I want to be good and I'm not feeling like I'm good. There, that feels better. I'm off to to the kitchen to make some oatmeal that will tide me over for a while. Later.
