What a week!

I had a bitch of a week at work this week. It was just TOUGH. I had some really nice catch-ups with a couple of ex-work colleagues which made it a little easier. There is this one Doctor I'm dealing with at the moment (for my job) that is a right rude asshole. He thinks that because he's freaking doctor that he can treat me like shit... and while I was starting to get upset about the way he was treating me, by Friday I'd come to the realisation that I can only do my job, and as long as I keep my end of the workload then I am doing the best that I can.. end of the day, if he doesn't pull his weight and get his end of the work done it's on his shoulders, and I think he knows that... So I keep everything professional, don't let my frustrations or anger come through on e-mail or through my voice, even though I know he is pushing me to see how far I'll go before I snap... that's just not going to happen.

Exercising this week has definitely helped somewhat. I didn't do exactly what I said I'd do for exercise this week. I wasn't very confident with my wrist so I didn't go to pump. So here's what I did instead:

Monday 6am: Cardio 50 mins 550cal
Tuesday 6:15am: Spin 45 mins 500cal
Wednesday 6am: Cardio 50 mins 550cal
Thursday 6am: Cardio 50 mins 550cal
Friday: Break
Saturday 8:30am: Spin 45 mins 500cal
Sunday: will be going for a leisurely bike ride for a couple of hours or so.

So while I said I was going to exercise every day this week, I took friday off because I was starting to get a little fatigued and needed a rest day. And I don't feel too guilty about it!

Going out for breakky with my family tomorrow. My sister finally got a job as a solicitor and she's moving 3 hours north for the job, so it's time to celebrate - she's 28 and still living at home, so it's a pretty massive deal. Other sister, who knows about the band, but hasn't come to me about it yet, will also be there - so she'll probably be looking at everything I eat... Part of me wants her to come to me and talk to me about it... part of me doesn't. We'll see what happens!

Other than that, all is well with me. My barium swallow scans came back and all is fine. I have "mild to moderate" restriction which is perfect!

Hope you all have a lovely weeked!

Hope you have a nice weekend with your family. I still can't get over how much exercise you do. Amazes me whenever I read it.
