Stress Donuts?

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Today is payday Thursday. I've already been stressing about today. We have pizza brought in to the office on paydays. Luckily we also have a couple of big salads. But buffalo chicken pizza...So hard to resist. I had a plan to get through and came to work armed with my grilled chicken to add to my extra large helping of salad. That's when I saw the box in the kitchen. "Stress Donuts" someone had written on the box. Right! ADDING to my stress about getting through this day. I grabbed my tea and left the kitchen. I did not go back in until I was sure the box was gone. Now the cafe right below my office is cooking up something that smells awfully good. I may have to go home sick...just 4 more hours. I CAN do this! emoticon

    It is great that you brought your own chicken for the salad and thought ahead. I love the idea of a candle to help with the café aroma. emoticon

    Hope you beat all those work temptations - it can be so hard. I know today was someone's birthday - chocolate cake, my fav but I stayed strong and walked away and made some oven roasted zucchini instead. I know your preparations kept you strong as well.

    Try "aroma therapy", get one of those small scented candles and put it in your desk drawer. When the food aroma gets to you take out your candle and take an aroma break.
    I like jasmine and the desert breeze scented candles.

    You can also get one of those sugar free extremely minty chewing gums. They taste great and overwhelm your nose with mint at the same time.

    Stick with your plan, you can do this!

    You can do it!!! You have to do it for yourself. You cannot hide from smells and live life. You've got to get used to these smells and pushing back or saying no.
