Another Day In The Office

I am blessed to share that i was not impacted in the layoffs yesterday. There was a very scary moment where several people right around me were impacted. It is very hard to see friends and colleagues leave. It stirred up many emotions and made me realize many of my negative habits and reactions with food. I took the high road and instead of eating, took a nice, long, hard workout at the gym. I burned my nervous energy instead of eating my way through it. This was a big breakthrough for me.

The Way I React To Stress

Today is going to be a hard day as we have been informed that there will be layoff's. I was standing at the coffee bar talking with some colleagues and it became apparent how we all have different reactions to our stress. One wanted to puke, one wanted to smoke, one wanted to zone out with movies, and i want to eat. More specifically, i want to eat high fat, high salt, high sugar foods. My cortisol levels are through the roof right now and my body is screaming at me for McDo french fries... Every other second i am reminding myself to breath, consciously calm down, and be willing, open and calm with what may or may not happen in my day. Remind myself of the positives that i am blessed for the loving and supportive friends and family that i surround myself with. If i do get "made redundant" (i love the way the British put it) I will take it as only one door closing and another opening. Looking forward to new opportunities and possibilities in my future. You never know where you can go until you go there without fear.

On Saturday I took my 9 year old niece skiing. I have been snowboarding before, but skiing was a first for both of us.

It was so awesome!

I am proud to claim that i am a skier. Like a bad infection, i have given up snowboarding for the much more natural, easy and fun sport of skiing!

Girls Night

Nine girls form the office and i all went out and hit the town last night! I volunteered to be the designated driver and had a great time toting all the girls around in their drunken-stuper. My girls are great!

My new found TV obsession is a British show called Supersize vs Superskinny (available here on YouTube). In regular fashion it the narrator states how 1 in 5 Brits are clinically Obese, where 1 in 3 Americans are. Every time I hear this i have to stop and pat myself on the back that i am no longer the 1. I am so proud that I have made the changes in my life, my attitude and my body that I am no longer obese.

Go me!
