Lunch came early today- I ate at about 11 am. I had a PB&J on homemade honey wheat bread (made by my sweetie’s grandmother!). I also had a palmful of dry roasted Starbuck’s cashews (that were super expensive! Almost $2.00 for a small bag). I think I am going to have a little bit more in just a tiny bit once the hungries comeback. I am still drinking water, slowly but surely. I finished most of my second coffee but the exhaustion is setting in. I am frustrated with all the work I have to do and so here are some tips for getting through the work day, ’cause let’s face it – we aren’t all cut out for a desk job. Sometimes I feel downright lethargic, and worn out (from sitting!). Here some things I do to make the day go a little better when I am ancy and tired.

Desk Ridden Tips:
1) Take a deep breath, when things are not “fun” – think about something fun upcoming in your future that you are looking forward to.
2) Get up and move! Jog up the stairs (if you have them) or take a walk around the building. The fresh air will wake you up and give you that extra jolt caffeine can’t/won’t give you.
3) Listening to music. I wrote a report in college about how music can help with productivity and calm people down. Listen to your favorite tunes!
4) Chat with a co-worker – it’s good to talk about “reality” sometimes outside of “work, work, work” chat.
5) Drink water – it helps you feel…fresh! When you’re feeling sluggish, chug some water. Always keep a (full) water bottle on your desk.
6) Dealing with a cranky co-worker? (I do quite a bit!) Try to look at things from their perspective (maybe they’ve got something hard going on in their personal life? Or they are feeling ill?) Take everything with a grain of salt and thank God for your blessings!

I am so hungry today! [Unhealthy] afternoon snack (leftover greasy pretzel from the airport:

I made my fiancee’s favorite burrito recipe – I really suck at taking pictures (even with my phone) – I had high hopes a took the picture below to start. Then I got a phone call from my mom and it was downhill from there. I have a  digital camera, so I guess I could break that out. I’ve been using my phone camera to track my food. So far…not so good. Missed dinner pictures last night (I was famished after my quick workout! – it wasn’t great, but it was something), and breakfast again this moring. So I need to get in the habit of that to track my food. So this picture is the start of the burritos – onions cooking away. I’ll have to leave the rest to your imagination. I ate one burrito (about 7 months ago, I would’ve had two). For breakfast this morning, had the same overnight oats as yesterday (which chocolate chips and peanut butter) – with my coconut coffee! I am drinking water too, I feel super dehydrated.

Work is stressful. I work with a not so happy coworker (How to deal with a crabby coworker). Packing tonight – flight early tomorrow morning!! I must be at the airport at 5:10am. My sweetie is dropping me off uber-early! Trying on the jeans my friend gave me tonight, hoping to be able to do a fashion show and pack some of these cute jeans up! Wedding dress shoping – t-minus two days AAH! 🙂 Last ten hour day…lots of meetings but off on an adventure tomorrow. Need to get back into a great exercise routine I had. Ten hour work weeks and trips out of state for Wedding Dress shopping are not condusive to that!
