After one week of technically being back at work, I am starting to feel somewhat normal and increasingly less frazzled–and it is such a relief. The only unfortunate thing is that this frazzle free feeling won’t last long as I will soon be shipped out for what is, for the most part, a two-week stint in Edmonton and Ottawa. Will be ever so glad when March 28th arrives at my doorstep–my travel for March will be over and I have a four-day weekend.
I even have plans for that Easter long weekend–to do absolutely NOTHING. I cannot wait! Plus, the month of April doesn’t seem ridiculously busy right now–so it looks like I will have time to really focus on my half marathon training for Fargo in May and enjoy getting back into (modified) cross fit workouts.
Actually, speaking of working out–I have decided to hop back onto the weight loss wagon again. See, around the time I was turning 29, I lost about 20 lbs though copious amounts of running, yoga, restrictive eating and brief, multiple interludes with an eating disorder–all to look fabulous and of course find a boyfriend by the time I turned 30. Then, after my friend’s wedding in Australia about 2 years ago, I came back and went into a very deep depression and essentially ate my feelings until I was about 25-30 lbs heavier. I have managed to get myself back down a bit, but never back to the weight I was (which wasn’t an unreasonable number by any means). Since I have been given the OK with my knee and am essentially starting my training from scratch, I figured this would be an excellent time to also try to refine my diet and shake a few lbs in the process.
I’m equally excited and nervous about this umpteenth attempt to shed some weight and am not entirely sure whether to share this on the blog. When I have done the weight loss thing on the blog in the past (and have tried it several times), it becomes stressful for me because now I have (imagined) pressure to update stats, measurements, my workouts, what I’m eating, if I’m cheating and to shed weight faster than a Hollywood mom who has just given birth. As a result, I think I might try to create a hybrid approach with updates every once in a blue moon but nothing overly detailed.
Sound good? Good.
Anyway, must get back to work–so wish I could get back to nap instead!
