I started a challenging new job last year and then moved into a crazy loft a few months ago. Both of these major events have changed my usual routine immensely. Truth be told I’ve had some seriously frustrating days lately where I feel like I simply can’t keep up with everything: work, cleaning the house, picking up after two very furry cats, cooking, blogging, socializing, going to the gym — the list of personal to-do items is non-stop.
Unfortunately when I get overwhelmed I’m not lucky enough to be one of those women who stops eating or forgets to eat. I’m more apt to scarf down a handful of nuts, followed by some olives, then a slice or two (ok…ok…three) of cheddar cheese, and top it all off with a little sauvignon blanc. Before you know it I’ve ruined my dinner, added to my guilt of not being able to “do it all,” and probably completely put off any thoughts of making my way over to the gym. Then I inevitably try to convince myself for the remainder of the evening that because I consumed all of those things standing up it didn’t count.
