I made it through! It did not help that our local IRS office is just a peachy bunch of people, as they refused to give more time on an audit protest letter due the 21st of april (we were originally told 2 week extension, then the guy working on it had to call back and say no extension...) but we managed to get that all done as well as tax returns! The 3 audit reports were due on Thursday and we managed to get them done early, so boss and I went for a pedi after the reports were sent off! Then we got Friday off as our day off after tax season! Just lucky it landed on Good Friday, which we never get off given the timing!

I stayed on track all weeks with my eating. I did start eating more to the top of my range, but since I lost enough weight (yes, crazy, during busy season) my calories also went down, so not sure if that had something to do with it as well. I lost a total of 14 pounds since March 9th, which I think is pretty cool for tax season! The office kept doing our laps once a day until last week, which was just crazy. And I only managed to get in 4 of my planned 6 workouts, but again, it was crazy.

Feeling rested and refreshed and back at it!

The power to change, the courage to do, the will and drive to be exceptional lies within me, and by leaving my fears, my doubts, and my excuses behind, I embrace all that lies within me.

April is the month that makes me very happy to work in government, not doing tax returns. Work is busy though since I'm preparing to be audited and getting ready for the summer season.

I'm also back into my fitness routine. I hit the 30-day boot camp too hard in January and ended up with my first case of bursitis in my hip. After 6 weeks of trying to rest it and little improvement I went for a cortisone shot earlier this month which helped a lot. Now I'm up to 5 days (about 6.5 hours) per week in the gym but don't think i should push it to get back to 6 days.

I've been good in the diet/nutrition area this past week and hope to keep that up to see the scale move more.

Just under a week to go, and the first tax crunch time of the year will be over! I hope everyone is holding up well.

Knowing what most of us is going through right now, I want to encourage you to get as much rest as possible. Try to make good choices, but don't beat yourself up if you don't. There will be time after the deadline to pull things back together.

Here's wishing everyone a smooth week. I'll check back in with you after the 18th!

Wow! Can you believe it's April already? Just a couple more weeks, and the big crunch time of the year will be done for some of us. I know everyone will be happy about that!

Have a great day!
