Got on the scale this morning. The past few days it's read 173!!! Oopsies! I'm not too upset about it though. My body does this every once in a while. It resists!! ALSO, I've been on vacation the past two weeks and while I've kept up with my runs, I haven't done much else in terms of movin' and shakin'. Spending hours at home relaxing also means I was very prone to boredom eating, which I'm sure happened every now and again. It's clearly time for me to go back to work.
The good news is that all this laziness ends tomorrow! And i will be back to running around like crazy and getting up at 5:30 in the morning. This is the part I'm most worried about. I haven't had to get up that early since...high school?! But I am looking forward to getting OUT of work at 1:30 p.m., as opposed to the dark hour of 6 p.m. at my old job. I'm looking forward to a LOT of things, like a more positive work environment. I am nervous, but it's never taken me too long to adapt to new settings and situations. It's what makes a good drama teacher, after all, to go with the flow and improvise!
This week will be a big experiment as I adjust my running schedule to my new work schedule. Everything should work out as planned, but a lot of that depends on how much sleep I end up getting. Right now I'm still used to going to bed late--around 12 or 1 a.m. and my BF goes to bed even later some nights. This week may be a fluke in terms of sleeping but I sure will try! I will make sure to be IN BED no later than 11 p.m. so I can at least get 6 hours in
So, while the scale says I've gained a couple pounds, it doesn't faze me. I know what I need to do to bring it back down, and I still look good in my size 12 straight-leg jeans. :-) It's just a matter of time!
