It's been a crazy mixed day today. I had to let one of my team members go, while at the same time getting a transfer sorted of someone else into the team (completely unrelated events). There's a huge work issue I've had hanging over me since November, an audit, that looks like it's getting towards the end finally. A really important contract got renewed, so we are no longer in any danger of having a break in our licensing coverage.
I got home and SO did not want to cook, didn't want to do anything at all. But I talked myself into cooking in the end (proud of my willpower on that one), and now I have 129 calories left to consume - sounds awfully like a glass of 2% milk to me. :) No exercise today, but that's okay. I've chosen not to beat myself up about the days I don't get any exercise due to work stress and tiredness, because if I do that, I'll fall out of my other good habits and start back on the pizza. I've managed to be a really good girl about calorie intake all week, including getting the right kind of calories, so I'm taking that as a win. :)
I feel so bad about the guy we had to let go today. I keep imagining him telling his wife and kids he lost his job. *sigh* I couldn't keep him on, but I feel like I just punched his family in the nose. Still, this too shall pass. If I managed eventually to stop feeling bad every day for leaving my ex-husband (now I only feel like a bee-eye-tee *cough* when I get reminded of it, not every day!) then I can certainly let this one go.
So.. a mixed day, with a heck of a lot going on, pretty stressful but only some of it was 'bad' stress, if that makes sense. I dealt with it okay I think.
