Thanksgiving is one major carb load. Potatoes, tater, stuffing, bread, cookies, pies, cakes…. That’s great a few times out of the year, but carb loading when you work from home is a complete no-no on a normal day.
The worst time of the day for me (Andrea) is lunch time. I have been awake for about six hours and have gotten a lot of work accomplished. But then it’s time for me to choose a meal for lunch to get me through the afternoon. And a lot of times I’m choosing with my stomach rather than my head.
That leftover spaghetti is mighty tasty, but it’s going to kill the rest of my day. Inevitably I’ll eat it and soon after become tired and sluggish, and just want to nap. My work day is done. And when you are sleepy and work from home, you have all the opportunity in the world to take a nap. If you go to a brick and mortar job, sleeping is going to get you fired.
You need to choose a meal that’s going to power you up for the rest of your tasks - not leave you lounging on the couch flipping channels and grabbing for a cup of caffeine. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with a nap if you need it - just don’t let a poor choice in food make that the cause of your nap!
Frankie and Andrea take turns sharing stories. Just good talk over a cup of coffee.
