In other news ….

I started my new job today, and I’m pleased to say it’s all gone smoothly so far, and I’m not regretting anything yet.  They seem like a lovely bunch in the office, and although I was worried about the work all being completely new to me, I’m very relieved to find that everything makes perfect sense so far.

Food-wise, I’ve been pretty damn good today.  I planned everything out yesterday evening, and prepped my lunch, so I just had to pick it up and take it this morning.  It seems that, like every other office these days, there’s going to be cakes and chocolate lurking every couple of days to tempt me, but I survived today without too many problems, and I’ve banked a few points.  I didn’t make my spin class this evening, as I was back too late, and I suspect that might be the case for the next 6 weeks until I move, but walking to and from the office and running errands at lunch meant I did have some activity points to bank too.  It all helps whittle down the weekend’s deficit.

I’m aiming to do a short-ish run one night this week in preparation for the weekend’s 10km that’s now looming.  Other than that I shall either have to get out walking on my lunch-breaks or get myself in the gym / pool in the evenings.  I shall have to see how I settle into my new routine!

New routines can be hard for diets, but sounds like your in the swing of things already! Hope it continues to go well.
