I rarely ever eat lunch during the week while I'm at work. Typically, I'll forego the whole "food thing" until I get home from work and then decide I need to eat about 4 servings of whatever my wife is making us for dinner. Yeah...that's probably not very healthy.
Well...today I decided to head out to lunch. I needed to get something in my system - I was really lagging and just not focusing well on work - which there's quite a bit of that to do. I grabbed my keys off my desk and headed toward the elevator. I got in the elevator to head down to the car. The whole time I was in the elevator, I was thinking - "Don't go to QuikTrip. Don't go to QuikTrip. Don't go t..." - I didn't necessarily trust myself about driving over to lunch and going right by a gas station without going in.
I headed in my car to Quizno's and tore through a Turkey Pesto Torpedo, Harvest Cheddar SunChips and some ridiculously amazing raspberry lemonade! It was delicious. I managed to come back to the station...and I did NOT stop at a gas station or by any cigarettes! YAYYY!
The only hard part of the whole trip was right when I got back and was walking into the building - there was a guy smoking right by the door. I so wanted to stop and ask to bum one...but I didn't - I kept on moving!
I'm back in the office now...and it's really effecting me. I'm getting numbing sensations all over - my fingers are like on crack; they won't slow down for anything - my mouth feels weird...UGH - this sucks!
Sorry to banter on and on about this...but this is helping me get through these cravings.
Have a great day!
