Work Troubles: Yet Another Excuse...

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Well, work sucked so far this week. And it's not even Wednesday. Still working into the wee hours on this Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning. And it's not like I'm going to be able to roll in to the office any later tomorrow, meaning later today. Pray.

So this is familiar turf for over-eating issues. I cave easily to fried foods and other garbage when sleep deprived. It is as if my mind and body are saying... "You need something. You are incomplete today, and missing something. Eat something." But what my body and mind are really trying to say is... "Go to bed. You need sleep. Your body knows best but cannot always communicate so well."

So, I will do my very best tomorrow, meaning later today, not to over-eat or eat in an unhealthy manner. However, I am already far too tired to prepare a simple and sensible lunch for tomorrow. Meaning, that I will be paying top dollar for some form of garbage or another tomorrow afternoon. Is decent food even available over the counter anymore? I feel like some strange science experiment when I venture into some of these joints on occaion. Hmmm, let's see what happens to Frank when we stuff him full of calories, sugar, preservatives, cross-fats, salt, food coloring, bio-engineered meats, etc., etc., etc. Crikees!

    I feel you've got the situation well defined - overtired does strange things to us. I'm not sure it is okay for me to post here with names of specific restaurants, so I'll send you a few suggestions person to person in via SparkMail. Try getting enough sleep. All you can do is the best you can - right? So keep aiming for your best!

    Five minutes hunkered in the light of the fridge can make a decent lunch,, cheese, fruit, a piece of chicken, or cereal, fruit and cheese..
    boiled egg, fruit and unsalted crackers.. 1/2% milk..

    I have actually been doing a lot of evaluation over sleep and appetite. You are right on target when you talk about your body demanding sleep but being read as asking for food intake. Even at the last WW meeting someone brought that up. We are an exhausted, driven society that really has interpretation problems on what we really need vs what we want. My fav meal is fried chicken, mashed potatoes and peas. A thing from my grandmother....pure comfort. haven't had it in years...but I still have the fantasy. I have to hunt for the "good' food...but it really is out there ...with planning. I go a week at a time and can stay on point if I think...and sleep does help me think.
    Good blog! Makes me pay attention! Keep Sparkin'!!
