Seriously Yoda – that was just brutal
Moving on. My 12wbt challenge is forefront of my mind, currently a little secondary in the delivery department. I am however managing what I put in my mouth to the best that circumstances will allow. I deliberately took half a punnet of blueberries into work with me this morning. And a yoghurt. And I actually snacked on both, and didn’t stake out the chocolate that I know is within staking-out distance. I call this, effectively managing my triggers.
Don’t get out the dancing girls yet though. I may have indulged in a Lindt chocolate ball or two tonight when I got home. Justified though. Firstly, I became aware today that the economics presentation I am to deliver on Thursday is not actually on Market Failure as I initially thought and had started to prepare, but on Monopoly, Competition and Efficiency. Of course it is. Obvious. When you re-read for the one hundredth time the unit outline, count back the lectures, forgive the course convener for the typo of topics vs tutorials, then multiply those by some celestial force. And there you have it. I had started to prepare the wrong presentation. How did I figure it out? I emailed my Tutor at some stupid hour of Sunday night, possibly Monday morning – just to confirm the details I had were accurate. No, of course they weren’t – because I obviously have all the time in the world to go and re-write a presentation, write a new essay and turn up on Thursday morning looking gorgeous and as if I confidently know what I am talking about, right? Oh, and lets not forget I still have to frock up, go to work, come home, play mum and wife and consider the sleep situation. Not this side of Thursday. The only give factor on that routine is the sleep, I’m not getting any at the moment. Its so overrated anyway – when you sleep the world passes you by…I am trying to convince myself here.
