So Supa spent her hectic day coordinating time schedules with contractors in the ungodly early morning hours (work to be done on the house), shuffling lethargic kids to school, presenting herself to work on time (okay, well 8:17 a.m. qualifies as on time for ME), strutting her presentation skills at today’s big meeting, juggling projects, calming the nerves of impatient vendors, yucking it up on the phone with her, and okay, not going to lie about this, checking in and commenting on all my peep’s blogs and posting on mine…. Whew! By the time I looked up it was 2:30 and I hadn’t eaten a thing! Save for a measly handful of gourmet caramel popcorn…
And so Supa’s boss, sweet soul that he is, asked why I hadn’t eaten, and I told him, oh I just got busy….
And so here’s the scary part. He then gives me a stern look and says in a loving, fatherly tone (he’s an older Persian dude, spoils me like a princess, ideal boss, very cool), “you know, at this point you’re riding on your good genes…as you get older, all this not eating right will catch up with you…”
*sccrrrreeechhhh* (sound of brakes coming to a grinding halt in my head)
Suddenly, the Future Supa flashed before my eyes - all wrinkled and raggedy and haggard and hunched over from osteoporosis trying to cross the street with my cane in my horrid Easy Spirit shoes and some bad polyester pantsuit, with someone looking on and shaking their head in pity, going “…such a shame…I heard she was fly once…she really shouldn’t have skipped all those lunches….”
So Supa took her lunch at 3 PM, ran out to the local Trader Joe’s and stocked up on apples, raspberrys, a fruit bowl, juice, vitamin water, Hansen’s natural sodas, turkey jerky, low fat chips, and enough healthy frozen lunches to get me through next week.
Yes, I have a mini-fridge in my office. Oh, shut it. Told ya’ll I was spoiled.
So boys and girls, this is just a friendly reminder that since we demand so much of our bodies, we must remember to fuel them appropriately, lest we end up tired and worn and bent over and ugly when we get older.
(And on the eating right tip, I'm ashamed because I know better. Guess I just needed my coat pulled, so I could act like I know better!)
That's all kiddies! Carry on....
Today's Update: I've almost devoured the entire pack of turkey jerky as my breakfast this morning. I can't stop. This can't be healthy....
