Stupid Cookies, Hormones, & STRESS.

Having a desk job is so stressful! Sitting down for so long during the day and dealing with everyone else's problems is so challenging.

Today, I woke up with this fantastic attitude, got ready, and took time on my hair and makeup (this is rare of lately).

I knew I had a plate full of work on my desk before I got to work and about 10:30 I was feeling a little discouraged. I pushed through all my work and got it done before my 1pm meeting, but slighly before 1, I started getting a headache (I was already up to 4 bottles of water for the day) and just got a bit cranky.

Raquel, a nice student and part time worker, from Brazil brought homemade cookies in....Chocolate chip, oatmeal cookies to be exact.

It's almost 4 and I've had 3 of them. I don't know what happened. I'm sitting here almost beating myself up about it. They were delicious and I haven't had many sweets lately, so I was trying to talk it down...

I know "that time of month" is coming up, so these feelings of irritability, stress, chocolate additction are all coming back. Hahaha.

So, I decided to blog about it to keep myself accountable. By putting it out in the open, I know that tonight I will have to burn off the calories. I'm going to do a big workout.

I know I need to be prepared for the time where I might gain a little weight instead of lose it, but I'm not ready for that just yet. I've done so well the past couple of weeks.

I'll blog after my workout...

  2. i need to hike tonight after work. hike and maybe some more arms and legs stuff. but i know hiking kicks up my heart rate! :( effin cookies...
