I still have no urge to deviate during the week of no diet soda, no artificial sweetener (my own two rules) and no dairy. Keeping the meals strict and simple is working well for my time management and work days as long as I'm able to get them all packaged up before morning as I have been doing. I do have an emergency go-to option scoped out in case I am not able to get all of the meals packaged in time. I can get a sirloin burger without cheese and a side of steamed broccoli at Scott's Brewhouse next door to work which would be enough to split into two meals. I haven't had to do that which is good because it's much more expensive than cooking and packing my lunches.
I have to finish my taxes this weekend. I've never before put them off this long. I've been under boulders of work stress for a few months. I think next week will be rather slow at least. Maybe I'll have time to read some anti-stress techniques. Maybe it will be reading about philosophies that monks practice for a new outlook on the world. Or maybe Sun Tzu's The Art of War ... which I've heard is about how to use strategy in many situations (business, law and even football).
