The Black Hole
Tuesday, June 08, 2010
Just a quick entry from me. I am in complete Sparkpeople withdrawal.
I returned back to work full time this past Monday. For two days I have been in the black hole of work in the hours of 8-5 pm. We have been completely slammed. Every moment is consumed by catching up with work, planning work, work, and follow up work. The ONLY time I am not doing one of the previously mentioned is when I'm pumping. Which thankfully has not been interfered with. I am already exhausted, overworked, and stressed and it has only been two days!
So far, our planned schedule has worked and we're able to have some family time together in between our crazy schedules. I even opportunities to get a walk or a workout in with the Baby Bjorn. I've been able to bring my lunch and snacks everyday to work and track my calories using the Sparkpeople App on my Blackberry. However, I have missed the luxurious time I used to be able to spend perusing through articles on Sparkpeople and finding fun ways to rack up points. It kept me motivated and interested.
My 34th birthday was yesterday and when I have time, I have some reflections I'd like to share on what I've learned and what my long term goals are. This was the happiest birthday I can remember and not just because of our new addition....but that is for another blog.
I miss my Sparkbuddies! Send me little messages if you get a chance! I may be in a staff meeting about to reach for a mini twix or Krispy Kreme. You're message will remind me there is a whole group of people that wants me to stay skinny!!
Have a great week!
