December 12th, 2018 Bookend
Yesterday: I maintained the integrity of my reduced calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.
The three-hour location broadcast yesterday at the grand opening of a new convenience store/restaurant went well. My plan was very simple: Enjoy coffee during and wait for a good on-plan meal after the broadcast. This was the plan I bookended with a support friend and that helped to strengthen my resolve. However...
Oh my goodness, the first, "You gotta try this" came within minutes of my arrival--and the offers of free food continued coming from a couple different home-office type people with this client. I totally get it. I'm the one on the air describing their offerings--and these food items are premium in every way, I mean--this is a company that operates their own test kitchens, so they're serious about quality. I'll spare you the food-porn descriptions, but trust, everything was over-the-top. It's only natural for them to suggest I sample several things. I had a couple of colleagues with me and they were ordering things, so that helped. I deflected the offers until the offers stopped coming while delivering the kind of broadcast they wanted for the grand opening event. It worked out well. I'm grateful. To be fair, I could have selected some things for a make-shift on-plan lunch--certainly. But in that environment, honestly, I'd rather focus on my job and focus on lunch, later. It felt good to compose and send that follow-up bookend support text after the event.
I'm ready for a good Wednesday. It'll be a busy production day with a couple clients scheduled for in-studio voice work immediately after my morning show. I'm planned, packed, and prepared in order to have what I need, when I need, where I need...yep, the Three P's and Three W's are checked and ready for today.
Thank you for reading and your continued support,
Practice, peace, and calm,
