I’ve been absent.
Weekends seem to be devoted to reading MANY blogs on a comfy sofa, grocery shopping, church, and TV absorption (it really does feel rather brainless… I was watching the Australian mini series ‘The Slap’ about the perspectives of 6 people who were at a BBQ where an adult male slapped a 4 year old child). OH and vacuuming the house and changing the sheets, with a load of a washing. I kid you not, nothing more really happens!
It’s the last week in this management gig, so that’s good (to go back to one role, and it’s responsibilities, rather than straddling two ineffectively!). The pizza party incentive was extended by a week, by the other manager. Whilst we might not have met the target I set, we certainly knocked it out of the park on usual monthly averages, so I can’t really complain!
The exercise for my weight loss program fell off the bandwagon about Wednesday last week.. Maybe Tuesday? I had a sore shoulder on Saturday week ago, and it got worse and worse. I could hardly play water polo on Wednesday night, even if Dad was watching and it was my last game til next Summer.
Mostly, I’ve kept to eating healthily, and where I’ve slipped up, I’ve still tracked all the calories. Still, the app’s promises of weight loss in the ‘next 5 weeks, if every day was like today’ are getting closer to my actual weight. So I better ramp up exercising… but:
Now I’ve hurt my left outer foot/heel. So I’ve booked to see a podiatrist tomorrow evening, and see what’s wrong and how it could be fixed. Add that to three visits to a physio in a one week window, and I’m really making private health work hard!
Right, what else should I check in on?
Holidays!! The two indecision maker (myself and the BF) finally pushed the ‘buy’ button for a 5 night trip to Cairns, leaving Good Friday. We’ll get back Wednesday and still have a couple of nights at home before returning to work the following Monday. It’ll be nice to have longer than a weekend’s time at home, and I’ll look into doing a ‘learn to surf’ during that time too. I’m sure it’ll be cold, but there’ll be wet suits… and maybe hot chocolates… Cause Lent will be over then (starts tomorrow – no more Mochas for me, which might help that weight loss!).
I should say, I really appreciated finding out how you all plan holidays. I really do want to poll my readers on so many things, as I find it incredibly interesting how different people make decisions!
Hmmm… I think that brings those who are out there up to speed on life of listing!
