I made it through day one back to work! Happily I worked at home, so no distractions and I spent the whole day wading through my emails – it makes you wonder what we used to do before email existed! 🙂
I got a confirmation letter from the hospital for my operation on Friday 24th February in the afternoon. I have to check in at 12.45pm and eat nothing after 7.30am. I am going to be so hungry! Still, a small price to pay to get my leg fixed. I also told my boss about the date – he wasn’t impressed, but hey ho!
It’s a big birthday for my hubby in March, and he decided he would like to go back to our little bit of heaven in Cornwall. I looked at staying at the one decent hotel there, but it is not cheap! As an alternative, I looked at renting a place for a few days – now that is cheap – no idea why, but we can rent a bungalow that sleeps 6 (!) for a week for less than it costs to stay in the hotel for two nights! Now that is a no brainer! Over lunch we looked at a few possibilities and then hubby chose where he wanted to stay – a lovely three bedroomed bungalow overlooking the ocean, nice kitchen, bathroom etc and a garden with a table and chairs should the weather be unseasonably warm. I rang and booked it!
It will only be a couple of weeks after my operation, but I should be walking around by then and I am sure that the exercise will do me good – the fresh air and the view certainly will.
After all that excitement, I had the usual soup and a slice of wholewheat for lunch, and then back to the emails.
No run today – my legs are complaining about the hills yesterday and the weather is grey, cold and wet, so no real incentive to get out there. Instead I made dinner – cold chicken from yesterday with salad and some roasted baby new potatoes done in olive oil.
Yesterday was another sugar free day for me – that’s two in a row!
Tomorrow I have to go into the office, so I have packed my food – a pot of Greek yogurt and some Shreddies for breakfast, a box of salad with a little cheddar cheese for lunch and a banana just in case! 🙂 I am trying!
Have a great Valentines Day!
