Happy Chappy!

Had a good day at work. Wait, scratch that- I had an excellent day. I worked in the older room mainly by myself which I didn't mind. I told my boss about my recent assignment mark (92%) and she was very pleased. She asked if I wanted to go onto the Diploma and that if the girl I am working for atm on maternity leave doesnt come back, she would love me to stay on. I was over the moon!! She also told me she would be happy for me to do diploma as a trainee type situation which is bloody excellent! So now it's just a waiting game to see if I get it or not. I'll honestly be devastated if I don't. I have real high hopes.
Hit the treadmill this afternoon after work. It would have been REALLY easy for me to not do it- I was physically exhausting. I do find it hard to do after work, but I am going to push past that. Tomorrow is a day off, planning to go to the gym in the morning, then go buy some clothes (mine are too big now!), get a massage and go out to dinner and a movie with a friend.

Food Diary
B- cup of tea
Morning Tea- yoghurt an handful of cashews, peanuts and dried banana
Lunch- 2 cruskits, chicken and sweet corn soup (didnt get to finish it because I was busy at work so I was hungry when I got home)
Afternoon Tea- 2 cruskits with cheese and vegemite
Dinner- Fettucine Bosciola
After dinner- icecream (yeah im weird. I only eat icecream when its cold.)

I'm wondering if I am eating too much? My restriction does seem to have worn off compared to what it was last week. I am booked for a fill on the 24th of November. But I don't know if its wise to go that long. I am going to keep monitoring it and check the scales a little more often to see if my increase eating is affecting my band in a negative way. I know that with increased activity (exercise) I will burn more off therefore want to eat more. But yeah, we'll see how to goes. What do you guys think?

Ok I'm out. Looking forward to the 3 days I have off before I start 5 days a week. Man, now that will be interesting!

Hard to know about eating the right amounts isn't it? No more than a cup of food three times a day is the guide I was given but this isn't always easy to guage. Congrats on the new or continued motivation.

You're sounding so positive these days - it's fantastic! Yeah I'm finding portion control a bit difficult at the moment too but I can't get in for a fill till end of November too. I think if the choices are healthy and you keep an eye on the portions you should be ok. I don't know about you but my will power is taking a battering at the moment!!

Em :)

I guess all you can do with the food is wait and see - 24th of November is much closer now ;)
