My Feelings Taste Delicious
Thursday, October 10, 2013
I have been a little bit of a mess lately. Maybe not a little. More like a lot. There’s been so much going on. I’m in a new position at work and on such a steep learning curve. Everything is taking me so long to do because I have no idea where to start. In my free time, I’ve been trying to buy my first house. Turns out this process is not as fun and easy as HGTV makes it seem. To be honest, it sucks. It’s scary and stressful. And holy that’s a lot of money! I will negotiate and commit millions of dollars of my employer’s money and think nothing of it. But spending more than $100 of my own money is a different story. Plus compulsive perfectionist in me is terrified that I’m going to screw it up somehow.
Unfortunately, I’ve found myself eating my emotions. The good/bad news here is they’re delicious because they taste like peanut M&Ms. Every year I bring in Halloween candy to the office. I’m not much of a sweets person so I’ve never had a problem resisting it. This year, I swear I’m going to turn into a Fun Size pack of peanut M&Ms. Every time I walk by, I grab one. It’s awful! And with everything else going on, I haven’t been working out consistently either. In a good week, I can usually get in my 90 minutes of cardio by Tuesday. Here it is Thursday, and I’ve worked out once this week. But it’s hard when I don’t leave the office until late and then need to go do stuff for the house (like yesterday when I had to get the contract ready to make an offer).
I was thinking this morning how grateful I am to have SP. Spark has helped me recognize when I’m eating to cope. And also recongize that it's really not helpful. Before I joined, I’m not sure I was even aware of that. Silver lining here, maybe?
Anyway, I am SUPER excited to get back on track with the 5% challenge!! GO STARFISH!
