The nature of the beast…

Today was what we call “hatchet day” at the office, where the talk around the virtual water cooler is all about “did you hear who got rif’d?” RIF= reduction in force, the Britishism for being part of a group layoff. ┬áToday we lost a lot of good people. Some were happy to get their severance package and move on; others….not so much. So now that all that is done, it’s unusually quiet in a space housing 300 or so people in open cubes.Eerie. The only (selfishly) good thing about today is that there is no longer a never-ending candy bowl across the aisle from me. Getting chocolate now will actually take effort. And I’m ok with that. Self-control is easier when you need to get up and go down the hall (with a credit card no less!) and get it yourself then when you can just grab a mini piece across the way.

Otherwise, it’s status quo around here. Mostly anyways.

Two large waters, one walk done so far. I”m going to try and get a second walk in a bit later. (Edited to add: second walk done; may or may not get a third in.

Breakfast: iced coffee with soy milk

Lunch: Chicken noodle soup, chicken gyro (sauce on the side for dipping, left most of the bread, ate all of the veggies)

Snacks: sm bag potato chips (not my fault, they came with my lunch!); FD nuts and stuff;
