Remember the great Girl Scout Cookie debacle of 2004? How about the Twix feast of April? What we’re looking at here folks is the horrific stress-induced, fatigue enabling passive-aggressive mess known as Oreo bingeing. There is no excuse for my behaviors and I’m having a monster of a time doing anything about them at the moment (have had several Oreos within the past few sentences). If I’m on this free-ranging feast fest I should get to the Farmer’s Market for fruits and veggies…that way if I’m stuffed to the point of explosion…I’d be stuffed full of bennies. I doubt that Oreos even show up in the TYPEBase Program—they’re that bad.
Remember those teen beat TV shows when the main character got caught smoking and their parents made them smoke two packs of cigarettes right there at the kitchen table to teach them a lesson to never smoke again? Does that work with crap food too? If I make myself sick over this will I never touch the stuff again? There are a few choice types of alcohol that that have done this for me. Somehow I think it’s not the same with junk food, unfortunately.
Well dear readers, in case you haven’t picked up on it yet, I’m in a very self-depreciating mood right now. I am so overwhelmed with the amount of work to get done in the month of May. None of it is overly cognitively demanding; there is just a huge volume of information to distill down into papers, presentations, reflections and other assorted assignments. I know, I know…cry me a river right? Any grad student has the same story this month, the thing is that I know how this grad student feels, and she’s stressed!!
Still, pigging out on cookies (that were sitting there in the cabinet…darn roomies!) is no excuse. But it’s done and I can’t take it back, so I’ll start anew (again) from here. My plan is to drink loads of extra water, green tea and Superfood. Bear with me on getting to you will responses to your communications. This has been a lengthy study break in itself, and I need more time to compose answers to your letters. I’ll get to it, just give me time.
Take care y’all and smile. Happy (compliant) eating…be well…
