Just wanted to let you all know I haven’t succumbed to the stress yet. I’m still keeping my eating in check (although just realized that I totally forgot to list the one tater tot I had last night on my food diary).
I have been doing at least some kind of activity every day – I’m trying to be reasonable about time constraints but still move a little. This morning I did my first Abs for Life circuit (upper apps, chest & biceps, followed by 10 minutes of cardio). I am doing the beginner program this week, but will likely be stepping it up to the advanced program next week, as it didn’t seem like enough of a workout for me.
I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel – tomorrow marks the end of a HUGE project that I was working for the last month (of course, immediately after I have several (like 8) smaller projects that all need to be done by Feb 20 – hence the full-time through that date), but it’s such a relief to have this first one almost out of the way; great confidence booster, too – as it’s not only the first one for the season (cryptic much?) but my first GIANT project since starting here. And, since I have two more GIANTS in May, it’s nice to know that I can, indeed, do this!
And now, back to the salt mines! Or something. It’s actually not as bad as salt mines – I mean, I’m not underground and I have a lovely view of the Willamette from my office. Um, so time to get my nose back to the grindstone or something like that.
