Life's speed bumps

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I don't live in the fast lane.

Ok, I do sometimes like to drive fast, but on the clichéd highway of life, I'm just barely out of the breakdown lane, and the road is littered with speed bumps. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I like to stop and smell the roses. And sit on the couch and watch movies!


I need to remind myself - frequently - that I'm doing this healthy lifestyle thing.

The couch is an occasional speed bump. Especially after a trying day at work. I feel like I "deserve" some downtime. Or I "deserve" some ice cream. (Of course I can never stop at one half-cup serving, but that's a topic for another day.)

Today's speed bump is another office working lunch. Two hours. Pizza is being brought in.

Ok, I know I can bring my own thing, but then there are the comments (and comments later) so no thanks. What I hope to do is to have 1 or 2 slices, depending on the size, and have something reasonable before and/or after the meeting. And lots of water!!!

*fingers crossed*

    I can understand the concern. It's tough to stop at 1 or 2 pieces, especially if some people push it.
