I am so glad Thursday is here! My bedtime has been creeping back and back and to top it all off I'm not sleeping well anyway so I am shattered. last night I couldn't go to bed at 9 because Line dancing didn't finish until 8:40pm so I didn't get home until just after 9pm. Then I was hungry so grabbed a can of tuna and a cup of tea while putting the cats to bed, had a shower and read for about 20 minutes before lights out. By then it was 10pm. I had a really broken night so when my alarm went off this morning, I did not want to get up! not at all. I am so glad that I can sleep in tomorrow! so very, very glad :)

Food is still going well. I haven't broken and drowned myself in liquid chocolate yet (hurrah) and I haven't been tempted to either. I know that the weekend can be a danger time for me, so I am making sure to be on high alert and not let myself give in. I am in charge of what I put into my mouth and have no one else to blame if I choose the wrong path.

As for the weekend, tomorrow I am going to see the matinee performance of Misery that is out here at the moment and then I am going to a colleague's housewarming party. Which reminds me, I really should pick her up something....more thoughts on what that could be a little later. Saturday I'm planning to go to the dive school and arrange to start the scuba course and maybe meet up with a friend from high school. I haven't seen him in more than 10 years but we keep in touch on FB and that's always been enough for me. Not sure how I feel about seeing him in person yet but we'll see.

Got the treadmill out, dusted it down and actually used it on Monday. I plan to use it tonight too, finally! Poor thing has been taking up space and occasionally acting as a clothes hanger for me since november. I was right, my fitness levels have gone way, way down in the last 3 months. Not surprising since all I've done in terms of exercise is walk from the couch to the kitchen or in some cases, to the phone to call for pizza (damn Itzza Pizza and it's amazingness, I don't even LIKE pizza usually). I do have to walk up a flight of stairs to get into my house and the same at work but it's really not enough. I am going to start C25K all over again, I haven't forgotten what it felt like to run for 40 minutes in a row. I will get back there again. I also went back to line dancing last night and have been away from that for 3 months. It's like November hit and I stopped doing everything. I have to remember that I was so ill I couldn't do anything for about a month and then Christmas and New Year got in the way. Then it was interviews but now I have nothing to stop me. The future is clear :)

    Scuba diving, treadmill...and line dancing? I have to admit I had a chuckle at that one!

    Sounds like your doing awesome and congrats on not spoiling your good things with chocolate.

    You should feel REALLY good about yourself!

    And remember - junk food is not a treat. Its just more work next week.
