Crazy week...

Sunday, June 03, 2007

So, I started my new job this week and survived. I am working loads more than I have in months, so it has been a bit of a shock to my system. In terms of eating, I have done well this week (except for last night at my celebratory dinner-more on that later) but my exercise minutes were really low this week. The trouble is, that in my previous job, I worked very part time and I wore trainers to work so I could go and walk during my lunch. I'm in heels now which makes it tough to get out and do good walking. I did go out each day for a walk each lunch, but I have a few nasty blisters to show for it. I could bring my trainers, but have to wear a uniform and it all looks a bit silly. I suppose I really shouldn't care about that so much. Mental note to work on my foot vanity.
Last night we had a celebratory dinner which was nice. We had take out Indian-but I chose something really indulgent and naughty! It tasted nice, but my body was so unhappy that I put something that rich and calorie packed into it. Ick! But, I'm actually happy that I felt the way I did after because it just serves as a reminder that I am not meant to eat that way. It was only one meal, so I'm already back on track. I had a nice, long walk today and am happily munching away on some dried mango (without sugar). Now, if only I could figure out how I can possibly add a few more hours to my day so I can manage to get all the bits done before I fall into bed each night!

    Hi there Andie !
    You really are being kept very busy ..... it must be very frustrating for you not being able to fit in the walking you were doing before.
    Hard to wear walking shoes with a smart uniform , thats for sure.
    I had a factory job, and when everyone headed for the work canteen .... myself, and a few others went for a walk with something like an apple to bite on. But a walk during work time is not ALWAYS possible.
    I just cannot eat "rich" anymore ..... even if I really want to .
    I do LOVE cappucino ice-cream .... YUM, YUM, I can eat a WHOLE litre tub in an evening ...... just don't tell anyone !
    I'm not much help to you with advise today Andie, (about the shoes I mean).
    Having said that ........ A GREAT BIG "VIRTUAL" HUG and BEST WISHES for the coming week ! !
    Lots of love to you and to Sophie !!
