Hooray! The board is back up! I had given up on this journal and had moved to writing everything on paper, but it just wasn't as fun.
I'm so happy to be back!
I had a great Thanksgiving and ate well throughout the holiday. I also went on long runs everyday - we were on the beach, literally! - and covered a good 4.5 miles every day for about 5 days straight.
When we returned home from the beach, I started a new job.
I don't hate my new job, but freelancing from home, which was what I'd been doing for the past two years, was awesome. I loved having my own schedule and easy access to good food when I wanted it. But working out of the house, being with other really cool folks, and having to follow a tight schedule, isn't too bad. It'll just take time to get used to it.
I didn't eat well last week, and exercise didn't happen either. I could be on a slippery slope here. But before I start kicking myself about some weight I might've put on in the past week, I've decided to ease back into the whole full-time job thing. I'm not going to worry about fitting exercise in right now, but today I prepared a big veggie stew to bring to work for my lunches.
I will do my best to eat well next week. AND I'll say NO to all the sweets my co-workers bring in.
I don't think this is going to be easy.
