9:00am meetings on Monday mornings are apparently not my strong suit. I was more of an observer of the meeting and try as I might to pay attention I kept feeling my eyes drift shut. I was doing the jerking head thing where you shut your eyes, lean forward and then suddenly bolting up to stop yourself from actually sleeping. I stared pinching myself, biting my lip, pulling my hair, anything I could think of to keep me awake, but nothing worked! I was a goner! The meeting lasted an hour and a half and I struggled through every minute of it.
Luckily my Supervisor was the only one who did not notice and has not said a thing about my drifting, however I have turned into the butt of all of the Sales Team jokes and have gotten several amusing e-mails over it. Oh well, I definitely deserved it. J I guess I won’t be invited back to any of their meetings.
After my nap.. I mean meeting… I had a mini Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar to help me wake up.
After the meeting and the snack I was fine and have been up and motivated ever since. I think I will just have to plan to allow myself to sleep in when I know I have early morning meetings. I learned my lesson on that one. J
For lunch today I had some leftover Spaghetti Squash Casserole with some Non Fat Plain Yogurt on top.
It’s not as pretty as it was previously, but was still just as good.
Once I was finished eating the casserole I was still a little hungry, so I grabbed 3 forkfuls of Homemade Granola.
Then I saw the Kashi Crackers and realized I wanted some cheese and crackers!
I had 6 Kashi Vegetable Crackers topped with pieces of Reduced Fat Jalapeno Cheese. These hit the spot and were just enough to fill me up.
Now I must face the rest of the work day as the word gets around about my morning nap. I just keep repeating to myself that I only have a 4 day work week and it makes it all better. I hope everyone else is staying awake out there!
