Ugh yesterday was a rough day. I don’t have much to write about because work has been so busy lately and I haven’t been able to focus on much else. But of course I wanted to check in with you guys!
I woke up yesterday morning and got my Wednesday workout in: 30 minutes on the bike (I did a hill climb program), arms, and butt.
Then I headed to work and had my usual Starbucks Blonde roast and a Cookies and Cream Quest Bar.
I had meetings literally all day with a short lunch break, when I was able to shove this salad in my mouth. It was actually the best combo ever, though – spring mix, an avocado, carrots, a ton of super ripe strawberries, and a light balsamic dressing.
Then the rest of the afternoon was spent in a frantic whirlwind of meetings and stress. I had an apple around 3:00, and then around 4:30 I was starving and knew I had to stay at the office for a while. I saw some leftover meeting food laying out in the kitchen and made a little bowl of pasta salad… then I found some trail mix and other random things around the office and mindlessly snacked until I left for the day, UGH.
It was also one of our summer intern’s last day today, so it was sad saying goodbye! She was awesome. I love having summer interns… I’m really going to miss them.
So after that frantic workday I finally left and took the subway home. I was planning on making some sort of yummy treat when I got back because I haven’t done that in a while (and experimental vegan baking is becoming quite a passion of mine) but as soon as I got home all I wanted to do was just chill. Same thing as yesterday. When I completely exert myself for eight plus hours straight at work, I have trouble continuing the exertion throughout the night. So couch and TV night for me. I didn’t even feel up for making dinner.
I have a feeling today and tomorrow are going to be just as stressful; I have some pretty important meetings for which I’ve been preparing for weeks. My goal for today and tomorrow is to NOT stress eat/start mindlessly snacking. Doing that will not help with anything. Whenever I feel the urge, I am going to take some deep breaths and think about the fact that most of my stress will be gone come Friday night.
Sorry for all the venting. Expect some more interesting, vegan-dessert filled posts in the near future. But for now I’ve got to…
Do you ever stress eat? Any tips to share with me to NOT do it?
Tell me something good about your day/week please!
