Taxes are making me fat

Monday, August 17, 2009

It's round 9 - for 9 years, tax season comes around and screws up my plans. Yes, I said tax season because I do corporate taxes and they all extend their returns to September 15. So, for at least 6 weeks before the deadline, there's nothing but stress and work, work and stress, and SNACKS!!! Everywhere!!! Food in front of me, behind me, everywhere I turn. We walk around the floor like zombies....need food...need energy....

Round 1, I didn't know what I was getting into. It was a total shocker. It took me by surprise. Rounds 2-6, I was just doing what I needed to do to survive. Rounds 7 & 8, I was doing good, I had a plan, but those darn taxes knocked me down. I couldn't resist. I finally succumbed to their will.

But not this time. I'm ready to deliver the Knock Out punch!! emoticon

These next four weeks aren't going to be easy, but it's time I win the battle. Fight the tax! LOL! Tax the fat!

I know I just need to stay focused. I've been taking baby step at a time. First step was to start drinking more water. Second step was to start exercising again. Third step is to find healthy alternatives in my diet. This week begins Round 9! emoticon I'm standing at my starting place. I have my cherries and carrots for snacks this week and a promise to myself to exercise everyday! Taxes, you better watch out. I'm gonna getcha this time!!!

    My Dad is a CPA so I understand- he gets in at 4 AM to work on things and comes home at 7 at night to go to sleep and get up and do it again. He actually is regular size, but it's hard- all the women in the office are overweight except one- the grocery store is great- you can grab great fresh food and it's wash and eat- If you can get in exercise that's great- be kind to yourself during this time- it's never easy...
