Works takes up so much of the day - it is soooo overrated! I loved my 2 and a half weeks holiday but it all went too quickly. I am not enjoying being back at work! The only good thing is that I am still slowly but surely losing weight and feeling good about myself. I too had a fill last Friday and I now feel quite restricted.... not so hungry and I now need to be very careful to eat slowly and chew everything really well. I've had a few painful episodes in the last few days where I have eaten the first mouthfuls too quickly and then had indigestion/stuck pain for 10-15 minutes while that goes through and before I can eat a bit more and feel satisfied. Obviously I have still been eating too quickly up until now so this is a good time for me to learn some restraint and new habits.
I'm still training hard for my cycle ride on the 30th. My training partner and I did a 38km ride on the main highway on Saturday... exhilarating and scary in equal measures! We think we are ready for the big ride now having conquered the big hill which we will have to ride up near the end of the event as well. Maybe I will feel brave enough to post a photo of myself after the ride.
Speaking of big events - we have a very exciting and busy weekend coming up with a double celebration of my son's 21st birthday and our parents 50th wedding anniversary this Saturday. Lots of family and friends will descend on our home for the 2 parties. And I am now at my lowest weight for 20 years - fantastic!!
