It's One of THOSE Days...
Wednesday, March 11, 2009
I'm having one of THOSE days... You know, sort of like this:
We didn't set Henry up for this photo. He just parked his furry little hiney in this spot one day while the camera was close at hand and completely cracked me up. He's saying "feed me dammit". And that's how I'm feeling right about now.
Emotional eating? You bet'cha.
See I finished a huge project today. Handed in. To the boss. I've been working on it for about a month and it's been HUGELY stressful. And out of my comfort zone. Today was the deadline. He's gonna read it tomorrow and we're meeting Friday. He'll have questions. There will be changes. But I'm 95% done. I have 600+ unanswered emails in my Inbox that I've needed to mostly ignore while working on this. It's been all-consuming. And miserable.
And now what do I want? A reward! I came home tonight and thought that I wanted a cheeseburger sub. But I'm home alone and too lazy to go get it (laziness DOES have its virtues). So I ate a lean cuisine pizza. Yecch. And I won't eat anymore. I also was supposed to exercise tonight and I didn't. I suppose that's a bit of a reward too. I gave in to laziness. I could use a workout, but I'm fried. So I'm NOT eating and I'm NOT exercising. And I'm calling it a day.
My boss and my two other co-workers (who each finished their own projects this week) are all going out to lunch on Friday. So that will be my reward. I'll just have to stare at the bowl until then. I think I can do that.
On a positive note, I am proud of myself for getting through this month without too much overeating. We won't talk about the bowl of chocolate covered almonds that was placed within reach just before lunch today at a meeting. I ate too many of them. BUT, I made it through this month with my healthy habits reasonably intact. And even managed to lose a pound or two. Not as much as I would've liked. But it could have been a lot worse.
I have another huge project to turn to now at work. Also stressful. But totally in my comfort zone. I can't wait!
