A hellacious first day back at work...
Wednesday, December 16, 2009
OMG! Today was just one issue after another. We were being hit left & right with problems, issues and attitudes. I work at hospital about 45 minutes away. I schedule OB inductions & c/sections and GYN surgeries. I'm normally off on Wednesdays & the weekends but w/DD being sick, I switched today for yesterday. And that proved to be a big mistake.
I did manage to get about a 15 minute walk in today. Yes, I made some bad choices-sweets were calling me. We also had a catered Christmas lunch courtesy of one of the practices. I had lasagna-but I ate my salad first. In retrospect, I realize my eyes were bigger than my stomach. But I learned I need to be doing a better job of watching my portions. I did wait to eat my dessert as I realized I was full. That was a plus. I also had lots of water to drink today which is always good. I've always loved my water though. I've just gotten out of habit of consuming lots in a day.
I guess what I'm trying to say is it's all about small changes. I'm definitely not at 100% but I'm definitely in a better mindset than I was a few days ago.
WE CAN DO THIS!
