As 2007 drew to a close I knew that 2008 would be a year of change. A year of progress and of learning and personal growth. Much of this started last year so it really was just a case of keeping the ball rolling.

I’m now about to experience some change that is both scary and exciting. Its on the work front and long overdue I can tell you. The wheels are starting to turn and that’s a good thing. I’m not sure how long it’ll take me to get to where I want to go but the fact that I’m moving towards it is exciting …. And yes a bit scary too.

The work changes will impact on other areas of my life but at this stage I’m not sure to what extent. When I think of all this I feel like I’m in limbo somewhat and its not a feeling that sits easy with me. I much prefer to know what I’m doing; where I’m going and how will I get there. Maybe these will be revealed in the next few weeks.

But for the moment I’m focussed on my training and adapting to extra calories in my diet. Yesterday the order from The Boss (aka Liz Nelson) was “EAT MORE”. Now with my history and all my preconceived ideas, habits and beliefs I can tell you that this doesn’t sit well with me. But I’m giving it my best shot (typing this feeling very full after a very substantial lunch). I may have to introduce some clean but higher calorie foods to better manage the volume of food I need to have. Training this morning was just PERFECT. It was a warm morning and no wind (just how I like it). Cardio was run and walk intervals and the time split felt just right. I could push it on the run and recover on the walk and when it was all done I felt FANTASTIC.

Cheers all

Ha! I never have trouble eating MORE.... I know what you mean though, it's easy to get stuck in a "must-eat-less" way of thinking, when that's not the answer at all.

Good luck with the work thing (promotion?)

All the very best with your work Magda, I'm sure it will work out great for you.

Funny the mindset we have relating to eating more food sometimes, it's never as easy as easy as energy in energy out for most people is it.

I love that song by the way,

Enjoy the rest off your week.

Thanks Kek and Ali,

my lips are sealed on the work front until things develop further. That could be in a week or 6 months....not sure at this stage.

Yes the "eat more" mentality is totally foreign to me. But live and learn I say.

Thanks Raechelle and Rae,

This year is certainly shaping up to be one of change but thats a good thing. At least my training is consistent though.
