As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

If it frustrates you that they don't allow laptops on a Ferris wheel, you may be a workaholic. ~Dr. Donald E. Wetmore
Yes, this his how I am feeling these days! Now I actually have a point here on this today. If you are slammed with work and life is also happening around you (family, pets, training etc.) Don't deprive yourself of nourishment throughout the day.
Be prepared, whether you work from home or an office...enjoy some on the go foods. Stay as far away from the vending machine or gas station excito-toxin fest mart as possible.
Egg wraps with veggies for breakfast, smoothies. Have some water 8oz.
AM Snack
Make sure you are prepared with some snacks. You may be hammering away on the computer, but you can surely sit back for a minute or two to think and chew, chew, chew a small apple, some yogurt with a little granola. Have some water 8 oz.
Don't skip lunch...this is sooooo easy to do, time has a magic speed up button during the lunch hours. Frer-range turkey sandwich on whole grain bread, a small side of soup or salad. Take those precious few minutes to step back from your work to eat. You will replenish your thinking power with a few delicious morsels. Have some water 8 oz.
PM Snack
Harboiled egg or cheese with some pear or berries. Easy to pack, keep in a fridge or cooler. Have some water 8 oz.
Still at work. It is really time to take a much needed break. Step out of the office and breath. Balance a portion of meat, poultry or fish with a beautiful and satisfying salad, maybe a side of cous cous. If you are fortunate to be home. Relax and replenish. Have some water 8 oz. If you are cooking, make it simple. Having ingredients on hand makes all the difference to prepare a stress free meal at home. If someone else is cooking, hug them, a lot and smile.
Okay! We made it through with a few ideas. Again, being prepared is the ticket. We want to keep that blood sugar balanced throughout the day so you are making level headed decisions and thinking clearly. Less stress surrounding meals makes the process of digestion much much easiery for your body. If you are in training...well, the performance zone is a whole different block of time to be prepared for. More on this gig later :-)
Taking a deep breath...and go! ~j
