Maple weekend part one...

Friday, March 15, 2013

Yes, the perils of working in a maple place...

Who can work from January to April serving up pancakes and delicious maple syrup and not eat it? Trust me, I have no self-discipline..I cannot resist...especially since I've grown up there, and food is my comfort....

I've been reading a new book, integrative nutritution, and I'm on the part about why we eat what we eat...and that sometimes, it's the fact we miss something physical, emotional, spiritual in your life and you try to make up for it in food....I noticed that even though my weekend is extremely stressful, my adorable nephew is coming up and he always makes me feel better...I love his hugs and his chubby little legs......I even don't mind when he pinches your belly fat and continues to do it because he is just that cute....so yea, the point is, I think I'm missing that in my life...I'm missing the physical interaction that comes with people...yes, body combat is nice and zumba is fun, but even though I'm there with others, it's still not actual being with someone...but now, I've reached out to my best friend who lives a couple hours away and set up a date night...as stressful as she makes my life...getting to see someone and just spend time, will make things better, I think...I hope...

Anyways, so with my lack of self control, my weight is, uhm, up there...whoops...it's just hard to turn down a comfort that has always been there...and I don't want to just yet...small steps...

So it is maple weekend this week, which means hour waits and grumpy people for me to wait on...oh joy...I never understood why people get mad at the waitresses...it's not my fault you stood in line for pancakes you could get any other weekend in march too...it's not my fault the weather sucked, it's not my fault there are a hundred other people and your food takes a whole 15 minutes because of all the other orders....it's not my fault the kitchen screwed up the eggs....and it's not my fault that I will overeat on pancakes...I blame the customers!

If you don't hear from me within five days, someone please alert the proper authorities...thank you in advance for your cooperation....

Okay...enough rants...I'm going to pick up a bit and get ready for the munchkin to come cuddle with his aunt...and then pretend that the customer is right tomorrow and that it is frowned upon in our society to use what I know from body combat on people :)

    Waitressing is a tough business. Been there and done that. Just keep smiling. Hard to dump on you if you are the world's kindest waitress!

    Ooh, I love sugaring time! But then again, I'm not waiting on rude human beings. I sending positive thoughts that everyone will behave and maybe even tip you lots and lots of moolah!!!

Even though I love, love, love real maple syrup,I do have to be careful of my carb intake. One time I fell asleep on the ride home and slept most of the day away. Hmm. Now I've learned to eat less, drink lots of water, and walk off those carbs! Thanks Spark People!

Hang in there!

    Aww... you have my sympathies for the awful customers.
Glad you have a get-together night with your friend and some time with your nephew, though!
Keep pushing through the weekend! You can do it!

    awww, I feel your pain! There is no way I could resist real maple syrup and pancakes, that would just be un American! lol! But, what you CAN DO is track your food here on SP and make up for any splurges you have by eating lower calorie foods the rest of the day. That is what I do. That way you don't have to deprive yourself of ANYTHING you want! Trust me, I don't have the healthiest diet right now. But I can keep it within my prescribed calorie limits pretty consistently since I have been tracking. Sometimes I go over on fat, but if I do, same thing....make better choices the next time!

I hope you have a great time with your friend and your precious nephew. Hugs and human contact are so important to our well being. If I was there I would give you a hug right now! Hang in there, and don't beat yourself up when you slip up. You are only human, after all! Just dust yourself off and climb right back on the wagon. Each day is a new beginning and a gift, that is why it is called
"the present". Have a great weekend! emoticon
