ARGH!!!! So I am doing really really awesome on my challenge. It’s Day 9 and I have had NO problems. Like none. Zilch. Nada. I want to do this. I need to do this.
So a little while ago, my boss sends out an email that he’s going to get pizza for my department on Friday. There are 6 of us total, so everyone will know if I’m not there.
I do NOT want to eat the pizza, yet kind of feel like I have to. What should I do? Yes, I am asking for advice.
I have thought about asking my boss if he would be offended if I skip the food and join for the conversation. I have thought about asking him if I can order a salad instead. I have thought about telling my entire department about my challenge and that I’ll bring my own food (even though I don’t want to broadcast what I’m doing). I have thought about taking that meal off, then getting back on track. I have thought about taking that meal off, then starting my challenge over at Day 1. I have thought about calling in sick.
This really has me distressed. I WANT to stay on this challenge and follow it through to the end! These things will always come up, but I want to do this strict for 30 days. That isn’t very long and I’m already nearly 1/3 done!
