Back to work anxieties ... As predicted...

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Okay. So I am back to work two days. So far so good but boy am I anxious. Just teacher meetings all week so it's a good way to start. But sitting in a desk and having little control of a schedule and free time and deciding to eat when you feel the need or should I say desire is a feeling that is HARD to fight. I am reminding myself that it's the need to feel in control and the need to be pacified by food that I am fighting and not true hunger. I didn't get hungry much over the summer and did not require regular snacking but for the last few days it is a constant worry. Then I worry about worrying or should I say obsessing about the food issues. As often as I tell myself to relax and let it pass it's finally time to break to eat. Then someone needs assistance and I lose my time to grab a bite. Then we all want to take advantage of "doing lunch" like grown ups but time is limited and fast food options sound so quick, easy, tasty, and fun! But I resisted the temptations a hundred times over in the last two days and have not regretted it one evening! Oh please fellow Sparkers send me your energy to sustain ...

I want to do this, I can do this, I will do this....Spark on!

    You are doing so well.
    Water is an excellent idea.
    Remember to change up some things so that urge
    doesn't have a habit to fall on.

    You CAN do this! I'm sitting here right now fighting the urge to go get something to eat with a bottle of water. We can definitely do this!
