Friday afternoon and a recipe for disaster?

Friday, October 05, 2012

The worlds want to collide this afternoon.

It's Friday afternoon and I am at work. I am really, really tired.

I have had two nights this week of less than 5 hours sleep each. One was work-related, and one was attending a social event. I used to be able to manage this kind of deficit, but not any more.

So, I am emotionally hungry. And there are muffins for free in the kitchen. And I have eaten a bit more than usual so far in the form of an extra fruit.

I know that if I eat one half a muffin, or one tootsie roll (in a a jar in someone's office) or one of anything else, I am heading into Bingeland.

Actually, it is rather useful for me to realize that "just one" will lead to many, many more. So I will work on avoiding the "Just one" and keeping on plan the best I can.

Wish me success! And if you have any ideas about avoiding the "just one," let me know!

    Oh, ouch! I know that feeling. My past several weeks have been like that, so I actually took a personal leave day on Friday to de-stress. I got to your blog today, so I hope you listened to yourself and didn't binge on muffins.

    So today is Saturday. I think stress reduction is the direction to take. Even if you have busy things to do this weekend, you can find time to do some stressbusting activities several times a day.

    I haven't heard any update on your new guitar. What is your status on that?

    Wishing you the best!

    step away from the muffins and candy. I know exactally what you are saying. Just one can throw you into a binge. It's so hard when you are tired to make good choices.
    Best of everything to you!

    Fruit does help. So does cat naps at break, deep breathing, a short walk around the building?

    You need to think about what you deserve and it is that you need to treat yourself well.

    Does that food in the lunch room do that for you?

    Twin lives this week, except we have Panera breast cancer ribbon bagels in the break room. And I had one. And 2 pieces of chocolate from my coworker's office. Thanks for the reminder that just 1 (or 2 or 3!) really is the first step onto the slippery slope! I do not want that for my Friday!
