Good thing: I had my first free appointment with my new personal trainer at the gym yesterday lunchtime. He smiles like butter wouldn’t melt, but none-the-less left me in bits today. Muscles hurting.
Bad thing: I ate flawlessly all day, then got sidetracked into the opening the second bag of Belgian chocolates bought home from my weekend in Brussels – the ones that were meant for friends. Blech.
Good thing: I didn’t finish the whole bag – I acknowledged that I was starting to feel sick and stopped ahead of time.
Bad thing: I’m clearly not quite over the have-food-in-the-house-must-eat-it food hangover thing yet.
Good thing: I thought it was too cold to go for a run earlier. Now I have the motivation I need to get my ass out the house. 5k run will help negate the chocolates. Serves me right.
Bad thing: I didn’t track properly over my weekend away, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I was over my points.
Good thing: I didn’t eat as much as I could have done, due to an absolutely killer, nausea-inducing, am-I-going-to-pass-out-or-throw-up style hangover that caught up with me midday on Saturday.
Bad thing: I’m obviously still drinking too much.
Good thing: I’m refocused on getting back into the whole exercise thing, and still have a refreshed outlook on eating well (just need to get rid of the very last bits of the rubbish food hanging round the house).
Bad thing: I’m eating out on Thursday night, and than have Bridget staying from Friday to Sunday – recipe for derailment.
Good thing: I’ve already started planning the menu for the weekend to avoid that.
Good thing: I’m off to freeze my butt off out there in the cold, cold night air and run now.
