Saved by ZERO

I am a morning person.  When my alarm clock goes off, my feet hit the floor and I am ready to face the day.  I look out the window, yep, sky is still gray in Seattle, and then I head off to my mighty IMAC to check my email.  This morning however was a different sort of day.  The alarm went off and I could hardly wake.  I stretched my arm out for the alarm and had difficulty shutting it off and then I just lay there for a moment.  It took me a few to draw up the energy to pull myself out of bed and I got up feeling like I had pulled one of those all nighters like so many times back in high school. mean…I felt like I could imagine what it would have been like if I were to have pulled an all nighter like the kids I used to hear about in high school.

Oh, where was I?  Oh yes, I was exhausted.  I dragged myself through my entire morning like a gorrilla with long arms dragging it’s knuckles across the lawn.  By 11:00am I wanted to fluff up a pile of accounts payable and go to sleep.  I guess you can’t do that when you are a manager though so I fought hard to stay awake.  By early afternoon, while staring at my computer screen, I noticed that the words were moving all over and that is when I realized I was dizzy, too.  Just lovely. Before you know it all I wanted was a jolt of caffeine and an icy ZERO.  You know what comes next…

Yep, I had one.  I blew the South Beach Phase 1 rule, no caffeine.  I half expected to someone to shoot through my office door and rip the icy goodness out of my hand but lucky for them, it didn’t happen.  Saved by ZERO.

    • Thank you for you support David. The ZERO was a much better choice than the piles of donuts left here by a vendor! If a diet soda is my worst offense this week, then I would say that I am doing well.

  1. Uh Huh. I can tell you were a good girl in high school. I can see the halo in your profile picture. At least you had a Coke Zero and not a regular Coke. That’s how I look at it. Tomorrow is a fresh start. Your going to make it. I have faith in you.
