git checkout HEAD config/environment.rb

As a general rule of thumb, everything works much better
if you stay clean when updating your files.
By updating, I mean any operation the typical operations
that touch your work tree:
merge, rebase, pull, etc.
Run 'git status' and if it says you're clean, then
you're ready to update. If you're dirty then
you should consider committing your changes first.
cleanliness is godliness, or something like that ;)
