End of week two

What a week! I am very VERY glad to see the end of it actually. My workplace is in turmoil, HUGE changes going on with lots of uncertainty, and its making for one very emotionally drained Hil when she gets home. My sleeping patterns are shite, and I've also attended a 2 day leadership workshop which killed whatever brain cells I had left this week!

SO my major obstacles this week have been tiredness and mental fatigue. Hit a wall on Thursday morning - I just did not want to get out of bed. I managed to talk myself into getting up, getting dressed and going anyway, which I was quite proud of! Anyway, I got to gym to find about 50 people milling about outside, the person who opens up in the morning hadn't arrived!!!!!

AAAAUUUURRRRRGGGHHH! I could have stayed in bed!!

Never mind, I got to have a good chat to some of the ladies, and I was just about to turn around and go home when someone with a key arrived (25 minutes after opening time). So I managed to get 30 minutes of cardio done before I had to leave to get ready for work. I was so surprised actually to see so many people go to gym at that hour of the morning. You normally dont notice because they're spread around the gym in different areas and rooms.

I also had to be careful at the training course at work - hard not to eat the food on offer. On Wednesday the morning tea food was pikelets with jam and cream, which I had no problem saying no to. Thursday I was feeling pretty tired and grumpy, and they had banana bread and date loaf!!! Oooooooh it was so hard walking away from that, but I did it and ate all my planned meals, including my own stir fries for lunch. God that banana bread looked good though. Being tired is just my worst enemy.

And yesterday morning I took my two week measurements and I have lost 10 cms in total!!!!! (Although I think I might have been very bloated when I took those beginning measurements!) Woohoo! Now I just need to relax and catch up on some sleep! Bring on that free meal tonight!!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Aw, hope you've had time to catch up with yourself this week. You've done well to stay so strong, most ppl would crumble!
Nice work on the measurements.
Oh and I love that last quote you posted up, MUST remember that one!!

Hey Hilary, great work on the measurements!
Being tempted with banana bread must of been hard - but it was definately worth not having by the sounds of things! Keep staying strong.

Great job in the first 2 weeks! And onya for doing your workout, (even if shorter than norm) and not giving up when the going gets tough!

WOW 10cm in two weeks, that is fantastic. You should be so proud of yourself!
