My job works against me by making me fat

I work as a software engineer. I hate my job. No, it’s not because of my boss and no it’s not because the pay is not good. It is not because of the many reasons why most people hate their job. I hate my job because it makes me fat.

Do not laugh. This is a serious problem for me. My job is a prison whose sole purpose is to make me morbidly fat.

Now, when I say that I hate my job, I do not mean that everything about my job is bad. Actually, many of the things in my job are quite good and that is why I cannot contemplate leaving my job. Number one, I love being a software engineer and I am very good at it. Since I am very good, I also get a very good salary. But as I will explain, this tends to work against me.

Since I am very good in my job, I have risen to a managerial position. In my kind of work, being a manager means that you do not have to do much of the donkey work. I only deal with the escalated tough issues which I deal with quite fast since as I said… I am quite good at my job. But again this works against me.

The biggest blow that my employment deals me however is the company cafeteria that is situated on the lower floor right below my office. The cafeteria is notorious for frying very aromatic foods and baking pastries whose sweet tantalizing scent is pure torture for me upstairs.

Being that I am often not very busy and my mind is thus not always fully engaged in my work, I often find myself envisaging myself munching on the delicacies below. When this happens, my whole body acts up against me. My belly rumbles like a famished elephant and my mouth salivates endlessly. At such times, I cannot focus my mind on anything else but the food cooking below. Eventually I have to order.

The cafeteria has excellent cooks who cook excellent food. Subsequently, their prices are also quite pricey. Fortunately or unfortunately, I have a job that pays me very well and the prices are affordable. For a manager such as myself, ordering for anything from the cafeteria only requires a phone call and the food is delivered right to my office. I do not have to even leave my office!

This is why I hate my job. No matter how much I would want to have a trim body, my working environment is always working against me. I have tried taking all kinds of recommended solutions to help me with my weight gain to no avail. I have tried taking white tea instead of coffee but still my intake of loads of bad calories could not be subdued.

I have tried taking food supplements that help in weight loss by diminishing appetite, but I guess my appetite defies all odds. Exercising is something that I hate and would want to avoid at all costs but I guess I have to succumb and join a gym. Or maybe I need to another job elsewhere.

Duties and roles that are played in the management of a home

Managing the home or housekeeping is not as easy as it may sound. Depending on the type of home, the responsibilities can be quite complex. Managing a one room house is definitely not the same as managing a mansion with over ten rooms. Unless it is in the home is of a single man, the task of managing the house usually goes to the woman of the house, the wife or the mother. Although any person can help in the duties, usually the wife is the official manager of the home. Women are naturally gifted in this area and have the skills to maintain a home in ship-shape conditions.

Before acquiring a house, the first thing that one has to consider is the number of people the house is going to house. This will then guide you to knowing how many bedrooms you need in the house. You also need to consider the furniture and items that will be going into the house. For example, if you own lots of kitchen appliances and a huge fridge and/or freezer, you will definitely need to get a house with a big kitchen.

When you have acquired your home and you have settled, then the job of managing the home can officially start. There are many activities that need to be done in housekeeping.

Chief among the activities that are necessary in the house is cooking, or providing food. This makes the kitchen a very important room. The kitchen is actually a factory since in here, raw materials go in and come out processed as edible food. Again, unless it is in the home of a single man, the responsibilities and authority of the kitchen usually go to the wife or mother of the home. The wife is supposed to plan what foods to buy, what she will cook, what time to cook, and what to throw away.

Today the woman of the house has to know more than just what she will cook but she also needs to carefully choose the food according to its health benefits. She has to know the needs of each person in the house and provide food that is nutritionally beneficial for them. She has to know when they are to be fed and what quantities each person in the house will need.

After the food is prepared it has to be served. Serving food is also an activity that can be complex in terms of the utensils to be used, how to serve the food, the quantities to be served, and the time to serve each type of food. After serving the food, the dishes have to be washed. Dishwashing is an activity that can be shared among the people in the house.

Apart from cleaning the dishes, the entire house also needs frequent cleaning to maintain it in a desirable condition. Vacuuming or cleaning of the floors has to be done often, same as dusting. Clothes and other household clothing such as beddings, curtains, carpets, etc. also have to be cleaned regularly. Many times families hire external people to provide cleaning and sanitation services.

These are just some of the basic things that have to be done to ensure that a home is a home.
