Enough of the pity party

Thursday, August 30, 2012

So as many or none of you (well at least one of you) knows, I am currently in the process of finishing up my doctoral dissertation. The last couple weeks I have retracted from all activities except for preparing my work in order to finish my writing, which includes tracking my food and exercise. Obviously, finishing something like a doctorate should come above all other activities, however, i think not sparking was much more of an excuse to self indulge to help deal with my stress. Luckily, I havent "gone off the rails" so to speak, though I have been eating a little extra and exercising a little less. Well, this morning I considered just getting some donuts to go with my morning coffee, and decided "enough is enough!" I might not have time for the next few days to work in my regular exercise routine, but i certainly have time to NOT eat a donut. So I am back to tracking, I have been walking every day, and I look forward to a good long workout after I submit my draft. Happy sparkling everyone!

    It's never a good time for a donut. Great job knowing when to stop.
Good plan! emoticon

    Yes! Don't forget that the healthy food will do more to fuel your dissertation writing than some lousy donuts. Even if you wind up at Dunkies and are considering the donuts, it will only take them a few more minutes to prepare you an egg white flatbread. At least then you'll be getting some protein, right? You can do this!!! I love you. You will get through this and emerge on the other side DOCTOR GREGORYCOLE!!!!!!!
