We've all been there. We set our alarm the night before, prepared to wake up at the crack of dawn, maybe even hit the gym, and prepare a gourmet breakfast to start the day off right. One snooze button turns into four and suddenly you're running out the door while still pulling on the other shoe. Next thing you know you're at work reaching for whatever sweet treat is left in the conference room, just awaiting the sugar crash that's sure to hit you before noon.
