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!!
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 steps...one 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!
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!!!
