I woke up today with a cracking headache, one eye half closed, a stiff neck and feeling like I could sleep for a year. I popped some painkillers, took my selfie for the 75 hard’ish challenge, and tried to get on with the day.
Then I discovered I had my period. Great. 15mins out of bed and the day was going really well already.
I was in a mood. I wished more than anything I could fast forward the day by blinking. I tried. It didn’t work.
Then I discovered my lunch zucchini again. GODDAMMIT.
Yesterday was hard because I was stressed about today, and I got cranky because of zucchini. To find out I’d made the same mistake two days in a row with my food order just plain sucked.
I had enough time to have a shower then it was time to go to work. I packed my breakfast to make for work, with the plan to find something healthy for lunch. I dropped my son off at daycare and was on my way to work when I remembered the work kitchen equipment was off-limits because of COVID. So no bowls etc to have my breakfast in. GODDAMMIT.
I’m happy to report the day got better. My project launch went pretty well, and all the work I’d been cramming to get done was completed in the nick of time. Thank goodness I work with a great team and we pulled together to get it done.
Food-wise I had avocado on toast for breakfast and a sandwich for lunch. I’m super proud of myself again for not giving in when I was desperately craving stress food.
After work I managed to get down to the river for a half hour walk, so that was nice!
Thankfully the stress should be drop considerably now, and back to systems as usual.
God I hope I haven’t accidentally ordered more zucchini!!
As for now – bed. I’m going to try and get back to a normal bed time for the next few days.
