My work season is over and it took a toll on me this year. I did make money to put away for my bills for the rest of the year. That is the good news.

Now the bad....well I was working 8 to 15 hours a day, depending on all the things going on each day. I only had one day a week off therefore this was 6 days a week. I was not able to get out and walk as I usually do and I was not following my best eating habits. There were days that I only got a cup of coffee and some water and maybe a pack of crackers. I know this is not diet. When Hubby would pick me up, we would stop for food. Again not the best thing to do, and given the time, 9 to 9:30 in the evening. It was heavy food to eat and then go home and go to bed. I missed my normal sleep routine also. Therefore, my bode has told me the tale. I gained 10 pounds and I am now going to have to work very hard to get back to my good place.

I tried eating fresh fruit while working, but that did not work well as it sent me to the restroom every few minutes which is not the thing to do when you are working with clients. I tried to remember to eat, but when you have appointments one after the other and you have a sandwich in the breakroom and no time to get to it....well, I just did not eat properly so I will be reminding myself very day when I am eating. I am trying to eat yogurt for breakfast with some fruit and making sure I get my allotment of water each day. I am having one cup of coffee and maybe some hot tea up in the morning. I am working in my garden which I hope will help. I am cooking again from scratch and making sure that I am using healthy foods.

This is the first really big slide backward that I have had. I have held my own for sometime now, but, I know that the bode will tell me when I need to eat better and get my proper amount of sleep and walk or do some type of exercise to stay in shape.

Good thing that was not a 52 week thing or I would have to buy a whole new wardrobe in the wrong direction
