First, things need to stop exploding

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Don't they know all that stress is bad for our health? Sorry to be joking about it, but I'm feeling maxed out worrying about friends and family this week.

I'm grateful my biggest crisis today is that I forgot to bring my snacks to work with me today. I usually pack two apples - one to eat mid-morning and one to eat mid-afternoon. I'm always hungry and eager for my snacks.

I'm worried if I go over to the cafe across the street to buy a couple of apples I'll come out with a bagel or a muffin too.

I think my best strategy is to have a piece of gum at my usual snack times. That will give my mouth something to chew on and (hopefully) distract me from lack of apples.

I'll report back how it turns out.

I learned a coworker's son is in the hospital from shrapnel injuries from Monday's explosions at the marathon.

Otherwise, today is a good day. I feel like I'm making progress. I'm wearing a springlike outfit and that's cheering me up.

    Couldn't agree with you more - things need to STOP exploding, indeed......and jobs need to STOP vanishing! (That's my "hot button" issue!)


    I've never been a fan of gum - I've seen so much rude and inappropriate behavior on the part of gumchewers wrt handling the substance that it actually grosses me out to even talk about it! All that being said, I agree with AKATHLEEN5 on getting something more substantial.....although if you didn't run out of your apples, it probably wouldn't have been an issue in the first place! I have resorted to keeping nicely hydrated by having a water source nearby, or taking a break or two at a water cooler/fountain, when I feel myself feel light-headed and/or peckish (although this morning I had some rice cakes with melted cheese as I was dragging quite a bit)......

    I hope your coworker's son recovers quickly!

    I think you should try to find something more substantial to snack on other than gum. I'm afraid that will make you hungrier if not now, later and then you really will want to eat something that is not on your plan. Be strong and look those muffins in the eye like you would face the "enemy" AND JUST SAY NO!! You can do it.
    Prayers for your coworkers son and all the victims in Boston. We as a country need to stay strong. emoticon
