|The newest addition to my cube. :)|
And actually? The picture on this post is from my cube - I bought the tiny vase at a small shop in Idaho Springs and the daisy is from a bouquet that I bought at Safeway Tuesday night (the whole bouquet was only $2.99!!)
So basically, I'm having to find time to write a blog and comment at night. So far, I've only made it to two blog posts and have commented on 0 blogs. I want to...I just am swamped with all that I have on my plate right now (Jackie, you were so right!).
I'm struggling though. I want to tell you about all the times I "won" but I can only think of a few. One of which being that Wednesday morning, our HR department brought in ooey gooey donuts (including bavarian creme, my favorite) due to us hitting the February sales numbers. I was in the lunchroom when they brought them in and felt no hunger towards them - so I just passed them up, despite many people encouraging me to indulge.
The thing I've been struggling the most with is getting so growling hungry in my stomach that I want to devour people's faces AND my lunch. The food I bring to work is healthy (a sandwich, a cup of blackberries, an apple, and some PopChips), but when I get to the point of being famished, I scarf it down without much mindfulness. I get this hungry because most of my day is spent at other co-workers desks - and they're training myself and another co-worker at the same time. These people must have stomachs of steel because they'll go for hours and hours without so much as a peep of discomfort.
And my eating at night? Eesh. VERY far off where I want to be.
Starting today, I want to honor my body a bit more - even if only to eat and fuel it when I'm hungry versus waiting for when my co-workers get hungry. If they think I'm a pig, too bad. I'll show them in a few months when the weight starts to peel off again. But in the meantime, waiting until I'm physically so uncomfortable and it isn't doing me any favors.
On the plus side? Scale says I'm down the 3 pounds I reported gaining last week. So I guess it isn't all bad.
