Whence our heroine attempts to get back on track

Yeah, so things have not been going as swimmingly on the diet or exercise front as one might have hoped. Okay, let me rephrase, I am doing just fine on the exercise front (with the exception of needing to lift more weights) but not so good on the food front. Basically, I work in a high stress environment and I tend to overeat when stressed and I work with people who are always bringing good food into the office and feeding me. I think really they swing between feeding me and attempting to marry me off to any single men that they can find. Anyway, I am trying and so far today I am doing pretty well which is all that you can ask from any one day. Tomorrow may be an entirely different story but today I am doing okay. Oh, and I look rather cute which is never a bad thing. Anyway, back to work I go for a few more hours.

It's been a long time baby

I assume at this point I am pretty much writing to myself because I have been gone for so long. My office moved, I lost all access to e-mail/internet for the last two months and I am working 10 hour days plus another 8 or so hours every weekend from home. In good news, I have gone back to the gym on a full time basis which means I am getting in at least an hour of cardio five days a week and I am finally recovering from some old injuries. Now, going back to the gym means I have to get up at between 4 and 4:30 am every morning to get there and workout from about 5:15 am to 6:15 am. Then a mad leap in the shower and I get dressed so I can make it to work by 7 am and then I work straight from 7 am to 5 pm with little or no break. It is a good thing that I love what I do for a living most of the time or I would be going insane with stress (okay, actually I am pretty close on that one). I am working on the food thing, I have always been a stress eater and that has been manifesting itself recently. However, I keep moving and working out which is more than I have managed in the past. I'm hoping to get internet at home some point so I can really start posting more regularly but it may take a little while. Anyway, I actually have to get back to doing work for the office now but I will try to get a chance to post again tomorrow.
