Week 2, Day 2
Tuesday, October 04, 2011
Well my second week isn't starting out so hot. I had a horribly stressful day yesterday. My job is working with a program called AutoCad, where basically I draw up blueprints of heating systems (piping) for colleges, hospitals, and other clients. Well my program decided to allow me to accomplish about 5 minutes of work and then freeze and crash. This issue persisted ftom 8:30am-4:00pm. It actually managed to allow me to work for about 15-30 minutes. I was so stressed out from having the worst IT guy uninstalling my wireless mouse to completely reinstalling my computer program that I was about to pass out and just fall asleep. But I decided to fight through it and at least wait til I got home to pass out. On the way home I made a snap decision that I deserved a few drinks with my dad...but dogded that bullet of bad judgement due to his truck acting up and we couldn't figure out a way for either of us to make it home safely after an evening of alcohol. Still I decided to go to his house for some campany and partaked in many slices of pizza...it was delicious but I really should have just made myself a sandwich or something before I left. Stress doesnt lead to proper decsion making. I feel badly about it, mostly because I also only took a 20 minute walk at lunch so I didnt burn many calories yesterday. Later that evening I realized I had to finish a midterm review to turn in today (Tuesday) and I stayed up til 12am stressing out about completing it. I thought it was due at lunch today...but its actually not due til 12am tonight. So I failed to keep my sleep schedule, failed to keep my diet, and failed to get the proper exercise yesterday. This morning my fiance got up early and made me a sandwich for dinner (I have class til 9pm) so I know I wont be hitting a fast food place or a snack machine tonight, and I brought food for breakfast and lunch. I just need to stay on target the rest of this week and make up for it but it was a rough way to start my week. If I was smart I would have kept my date with my best friend, made us both dinner, maybe had a glass of wine and felt much better about myself. Lesson learned. My mom did say my face was looking thinner and she saw improvements so that made me feel good. Its unsettling to know people saw you developing a double chin and not saying a word. Where is the honesty these days? lol! jk. I probably wouldnt say anything myself.
I am hoping today will be a better day. Ive been here since 7:30 and Im too afraid to do any work and crash and burn again but I gotta start sometime. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Tomorrow I'm going with my mom to the church. They are having a pet blessing in the outdoor chapel so that should raise my spirits. I hope everyone has a good day (including myself!)
