Moving on

A relaxing weekend, plus some extra sleep, did the trick - I'm starting this week feeling capable, strong and raring to go. That's a nice change from last week, which felt more like grumpy, hopeless and OMG, I can't DO this!

I've taken a few more small bites of my competition elephant in the past couple of days, so that has me feeling well-organised and as though it really will all come together in time. And in spite of feeling a bit pudgy and bloated (note to self: do NOT eat cafe-sized serves of bread twice in one day), and the scales not exactly behaving as I'd like them to, I'm quietly confident that this week I will totally nail nutrition and see some good progress as a result.

I may have sworn at the alarm this morning and gone back to sleep, but I forced myself to do battle with the hordes at the gym tonight and got my workout done anyway. The crowded conditions were less than ideal, but since there was nobody to blame but me, I just had to suck it up. Why do the men feel the need to hog ALL the benches? I had to go into the dinky little ladies' area to find one....

My plan for this week is to get enough sleep, have a little time off to relax and just take a day at a time.

I can do that.

Sounds like a great plan for the week.

What's with cafe serves of bread - why do they have to be the size of brick?
