Stress = Tight Band

Ok, so you could probably imagine that because of the news I have received this week, coupled with me being so far away from home, my eating has pretty much gone out the window... My band is as tight as a cats bum at the moment... This morning I tried some Congee (japanese rice porridge) for breakky... no good, yoghurt... no good.. juice.. managable. Didn't eat again until 1pm, so my band had no action in between so I was just as tight. I did manage to get some seafood / tofu soup down and once I had started eating I found that I could get this seafood mince dish down... but again, comments from people on how little i was eating. This time I used the excuse that when I get stressed I don't have an appetite!!

Chocolate is my friend at the moment, and I'm allowing myself to eat some everyday because I've had a pretty shit week.. and it's probably the only energy I am getting right now.. thank goodness I brought those protein shakes with me!!

On the up side, I have had chat with a recruitment consultant for a job going as a Project Manager, and I'm feeling pretty positive about the whole finding a new job thing. Yeah, it's going to be tough to start again when I wasn't expecting to.. but such is life..

Who knows, perhaps this will be a blessing in diguise?

OK, I"m going to wonder over to some shops at the Taipei 101 building. Retail therapy always does the trick!!

I am a big believer that when one door closes, another opens. I was made redundant quite a few years ago, and it was one of the best things that happened to me. I did temp work while I studied in my current field.

Keep your chin up,

Good luck with the search...I hope this new lead comes through for you!! Maybe get yourself some disolvable vitamins to have as well? You don't want to get sick and run down as well while you are going through this!!

You're obviously a very skilled and talented woman and I'm sure you'll land on your feet. Meanwhile enjoy that retail therapy.

Chocolate sounds like a plan at the moment - good way to keep up your dairy! Hope the retail therapy helped too.
