Do you ever feel like a short, 4-day work week is way worse than a regular 5-day work week? That's this week for me. My organization advocates for cities, towns and villages in the North Carolina General Assembly. This week we have 2 very important meetings associated with our 2011 advocacy goals - our Board of Directors will meet all-day tomorrow and many of our members will be here for a conference on Thursday. Needless to say, that means a very busy week for me. Normally, a Board meeting on Wednesday and a conference on Thursday wouldn't bother me but being off yesterday nearly killed me!
This morning, I found out that the local Weight Watchers center has open hours beginning at 8 a.m. I went to weigh in before work. I was down 2.4 pounds - this puts me back where I was before I gained the last two weeks. Hoping I can stick with the losing trend! Since work will continue to be extremely busy through at least July, I think I might change my weigh-in day. I think I will start going to weigh-in at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, and then go to an actual meeting at some other point in the week. Going on Tuesday morning will at least ensure that I weigh every week.
The rest of the day was ridiculously busy. At one point in the afternoon, I emailed my trainer and told him there was no way I could make our 5 p.m. appointment - this did not make me happy. As the afternoon progressed, I knew that I couldn't miss my appointment. Yes, I was extremely busy at work but missing my appointment would be more detrimental than it was worth - I would be in a crappy mood if I missed for work. As soon as 4:30 rolled around, I jumped up from my desk and went to the gym. My workout with Rick sucked, but in the best way possible. It was just what I needed to take my mind off the stress from work. I hope the endorphins from the workout sustain me for the next two hellacious days!
