Yesterday we received some really great news. WH has won a new job. Considering how unhappy he is in his current position and the benefits of the new job, this is almost equivalent to a lottery win for us. Words cannot describe how happy I am for him (and for us). For me, its one (big) thing less to worry about while I'm doing my comp prep. Today I feel better both physically and mentally and I'm sure this news has a lot to do with that.

I think the other thing making me feel better today is my increased calorie intake yesterday ... oops!! I had a very small glass of champagne to celebrate the good news and roast beef for dinner which really bumped the cals up even though my serve was quite small. Oh well, all the food I ate was clean so I'm not concerned.

With MIL still with us and the last of BS's birthday celebrations last night (it was his birthday yesterday after all) getting my weight training done is proving to be difficult. I'm hoping tonight is a quiet night at home as planned and I can get my 2nd session done. Then its only my gym session tomorrow and I'm done. Cardio has been good. Sprints yesterday and today + taking the stairs at work is giving my legs a good workout :-) God knows they need it. I wore a short skirt yesterday and in black stockings I thought my legs looked ok. My arse is definitely smaller too.

I'm intending to put in a big effort this week with my nutrition and training and then on Friday night WH and I are going out to dinner to celebrate his new job. I plan to enjoy a couple of drinks but will choose the healthiest meal I can so I dont feel as though I'm blowing all my previous hard work. Anyway after some days of quite low cals, I believe its not harmful (in fact its actually beneficial) to have a day where intake is a bit higher. The trick is to get right back on track the next day. That'll be the challenge.

Cheers all
