I love Friday nights. Although tonight was far from ideal, its still been great. Tonight I'm goinjg to refelct back over my week and see how I went overall.

This week I have achieved a 90% success rate in eating lean, clean and to plan. Why 90%? Because I've had days where I havent eaten enough due to work being so busy. I havent gone off track but there have been 5-6 hour gaps between some meals and this has been totally out of my control.

Training wise my success rate is 100%. Today I made an executive decision to swap my allocated "day off from training" to Friday so that after a week of getting up at 5am I have some reprieve on the last day of the week. I will train on Sunday when I can do it at my leisure with more time available to me and not before the rest of the world comes to life.

My head space has been really good. Sure I've had a few moments where I felt inadequate and doubted my ability to do my new job but then I managed to put a few runs on the board and that helped to lift my spirits. Receiving a nice compliment from my Director yesterday also helped. For 2 days Wendy the Wino tried really hard to get me to seek stress relief from a glass or two of wine after work but I talked her down and today she was off hassling someone else (is she at your place Kek??)

I'm due to weigh and take measurements tomorrow and whilst a part of me is curious to know what the Metal Moster says, another part of me doesnt really care because I've ticked all the boxes and know that I'm moving in the right direction. Oh and one of the best things is ...we've actually got a fairly quiet weekend and after the week I've had, thats a real blessing.

Cheers all

Yep, she was DEFINITELY here last night, Magda...kept telling me to stick a bottle of sauv blanc in the freezer and it'd be cold in no time... MAN, she was persuasive!

I told her to sod off though. She's not winning many friends this week. ;o)

Hey Magda

Great job this week. You're on fire.

Tell Wendy to go play by herself for four more weeks then tell her to come visit me - 12th December to be exact!

Magda said...

Kek I'm glad you sent her packing. She's a persistent little b*tch isnt she??!!

Hey Shelley I'll be thinking of you on the 12th. PARTY TIME!!!! -while I sip my weekly wine ration -but hey, at least its legal according to coach and thats great.

Hi Ali,

I'm not sure if I'd say I was doing "great" in my new job but I'm doing my best to do a good job while I'm there. I must admit though, its taking a huge effort just to keep my head above water.
