Well here I am again, Townsville, Far North Queensland. This is the place where all my body woes began, I spent a very large part of 2004 here, and put on a lot of weight due to eating and drinking too much, stress, and not exercising enough. This is where I improved on my "muffin top" look! This is also where I developed my "wine makes it all better" motto too... ;-) it was bad news all round!
I'm here for work again, and this is the first time I've been back since 2004. I was a little bit apprehensive about coming back too. I know you cant blame a location for adding to your issues, but I guess that's what I was doing. Anyway, here I am, and I'm doing ok. I know I am a lot stronger, both physically and mentally since I was last here - so there can be no excuses anymore.
Yesterday I was soooo hungry! I just wanted to eat everything in sight, but I ate only what was planned - although I was probably a little light-on for protein. Went out for a huge jog along the Strand yesterday afternoon for 50 minutes (OMG it was so HOT - my head felt like a furnace, and even the breeze off the ocean was hot!), and then went out for dinner. My resolve broke a little at dinner and I had some white wine, but resisted a few other things that I was tempted with. I dont know what it is about bloody travelling that makes me weaken!! It makes me so angry with myself!
Anyway, today WILL be much better. I have bought myself a diet coke to have with dinner (room service) and all my meals are in the fridge at the office ready to go - so no excuses! Home tomorrow night - and back to normality.
This time next week I will be having my first eye operation!!!! (trying not to think about it or I will chew my nails down to the knuckle)
Hope everyone is having a great week. Unfortunately I cant read blogs while I'm away :(
