I'm so tired I could cry. It hasn't been a bad day by any means, but busy, and my colleagues seemed a little stressed, which rubs off on me. In additon, I'm worried about a friend. I'll see him this weekend, though - we have a cupcake/strawberries dipped in chocolate/massage/movie night planned. Meow.

Anyway, I have lost 11 kg since I re-started Sparks at the beginning of this year. I was pretty surprised when I checked my weight this morning, but okay, I'll take it. Now I just have to be careful not to self-sabotage again - whenever I hit a new lowest weight, I tend to go insane. I don't know why. Self-sabotage indeed. (The fact that I have cinnamon swirls sitting in the oven right now has nothing to do with this - they are for my boyfriend who is working late!)

It'll be another busy day at work. I seldom sit down to eat lunch - there is simply too much to do, so I have my diet bar (easy to carry, portion control, tasty, doesn't crumble, easy to re-wrap and toss in my bag if I need to go quickly) whilst working - making a memorial book, cleaning up the church, sitting in the car... I try to be mindful when I eat it, though. But mindful eating without doing anything else - like talk to someone, work, or watch something - is so boring I actually eat faster just to get it done with. (I savour my treats though.)

Tomorrow will see me embark on the third week of C25K. I will have to run two days in row to make up for my weekend trip, but I think I'll be okay.

    emoticon on the weight loss. That is fantastic. I know exactly what you mean about self sabatoging. emoticon

    I'm proud of you for deciding to do two days in a row to make up for the weekend. That will make you feel great.

    That's good you are going to see your friend. You need each other.

    Have fun with the third week of C25K! Mindful eating can be tough, as you said, especially when you are busy with a lot of other things.

    It sounds like a lot of things are going on at once. Sometimes it is easier to take things one day at a time, but you know that. I am thinking of you and hoping that tomorrow brings a less stressful day. emoticon
