The long and winding road to fitness, day 140

Why?  Why do I let these stressful, crazy, hectic days get to me?  I don’t know the answer to that, but I do know I allowed it to happen today.  It was just nutty from the start today, so busy, not enough people working.  And I let myself give in to the stress.  I really wish I could be more like my boss, he loves when it’s crazy…gets his adrenaline pumping…and he’s always so cheerful (well, at least where most people can see him…I’m privy to some of his not so good moods, but customers never see him like that).  I can get a little snarky at times, most of the time with the people I work with…not nice, I know.  Once the closing manager got there and the framing manager got back from lunch, I decided I was going out for lunch just to get away for a few minutes.  Not the best choice as far as the old diet goes, but it did help me with my mood.  Of course, I could have stayed at work and eaten my healthier lunch and probably would have still had my mood improve just the same…I know I went too long without eating…come on (thumps head…twice) when will you learn to eat on a regular schedule? 

No exercise today to speak of…lots of walking around at work, but that’s it.  I have tomorrow off so I’m going to get in a couple of workouts, albeit short ones.  If it’s as nice as today was, I’m going to go out for a walk.  I couldn’t believe it was in the 70s today…on Nov 8!

I need to do a little salad prepping tomorrow too…tear and wash some lettuce, shred some more carrots.  I’ve been thinking about making a healthier Waldorf salad…we used to eat that a lot when I was a kid…of course, with full fat mayo…

And maybe, just maybe, tomorrow will be a day that sees me taking a little nap in the afternoon…and sleeping in in the morning…at least until 6 am!!  Long gone are the days of sleeping until noon…
