I’m hugely in favor of having a work-life balance … emphasis on the LIFE part of things. But this past week (and weekend), work ended up trumping fun things like sitting around in my jammies and doing nothing, as well as, necessary things like – oh, grocery shopping for the week, laundry and on Monday/Tuesday – showering. Luckily, I have a wee bit of breathing room before things get crazy again. Which, that will actually be this afternoon, but armed with a full night of sleep – I feel like I can take on the world.
Anyway … one of the realities of being so busy that you barely have time to pee (btw – I work from home and the bathroom is right across the hall from my office. Yup, pathetic, I know …) is that having a reduced amount of time and a heady level of stress in my life, I start making bad decisions. Like ordering pizza on Saturday night. Eating Chinese food last Friday and on Tuesday because I really didn’t have any food left in the house. (At that point, I had cleaned out the Jif and had already had a ham sandwich for breakfast. I wanted something healthy with vegetables. So … um, yeah. The vegetables in cashew chicken count, right? Right??)
So here’s my question for you … do you have any tricks up your sleeve when it comes to having meals in the freezer or stuff in the pantry that keep you from reaching for the takeout menus after a crazy day/week of work? Sound off in the comments!
