As I sit here during the last ten minutes of my lunch break, I'm pondering the week that's just passed.
Last week started really well - I said no to the staff birthday cake going around (Caramel mudcake - YUM!), and everyone was impressed at my self control. But it was all downhill from there...
So many excuses, and my best friend visiting from Cairns, and relationship issues meant that I wasn't at the gym for 6 days. And I missed the first Group Work out. Very disappointed in myself.
I found out that I was eating carbs at every meal - and lots of them (did any one else know that tomatoes are mostly carbs?). So I'm making changes - Slowly.
However, I had my first ever personal training session yesterday - It was great! I felt like a fool, my trainer is so fit and strong - She was lifting heaps and heaps and I was struggling on the lowest settings. But I'll keep at it, and it'll all be fine.
I hit the gym this morning before work, and I'm paying for it now. I can hardly move, let alone think. My back aches, my shoulders, ribs and legs ache. And my head aches - though I can't blame the gym for that one.
I'm so tired - falling asleep at the computer. But that's okay, I've done everything that was urgent for today, so I can take it a bit easier this afternoon.
I've planned grilled fish with garlic prawns and salad for dinner tonight, as a welcome back surprise for Shell- I'm excited!! I don't think I'm going to want to cook it though... So much effort!!
I'm so excited to get onto this eating plan with the 12wbt; I hate having to think everything through so much!! I'd rather Mish tell me what to eat and when. It's easier.
Not excited about the gym tomorrow - though at least I can do cardio and not weights!!
