Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, it’s back to work I go. Ahhhhhh yes, Monday morning. The time of week I usually dread, but for some bizarre reason I welcomed with a bear-hug this morning. I suppose work’s air-con had great appeal, but also getting back into the routine of being healthy & on top of things. Which yes, my friends, means (as you may, or may not have already guessed), I was not a cave-woman this weekend. Actually, I was anything but; I ate ice-cream THREE (3) times, and had a slushy from 7-11, and ate fries, and a chicken burger, and glorious-glorious cheese. Hmmmmm brie cheese, you tasty devil you. But-but-but, in a nice turn of events, I didn’t feel guilty about my carb-sugar-dairy consumption, nope, I actually just enjoyed, ate, and didn’t dwell; a welcomed changed from my constant evil, “you are so fat, and useless and why are you doing this?” thoughts. PRO-GRESS.
The weekend kicked off with a 42 degree (108F) day, and a moment I won’t soon forget; waking up in a SAUNA and looking at the temperature outside to see that it was still 32 degrees (90F) at 2am in the morning. Australia, you hot beast, you. I was unimpressed, but then lucky for me, and a big thank you to Amy, Matt & I were in the car before 7am to head to Phillip Island (about a 2h drive down the coast) to stay at Amy’s family’s beach house. And? And it was glorious, and wonderful, and cool. Great company, delicious food, playing cards, drinking wine, reading on the beach, night markets, ice-cream & fish ‘n chips. It was kinda, sorta, maybe perfect (besides the whole Australian-sun-piercing-my-bones thing).
And then Sunday evening a bunch of us headed to the cricket game. I gotta admit I didn’t have high hopes, but was rather surprised by my genuine interest in what was going on. Although, come to think of it, the crowd & people watching may have been why I liked it so much, but minor details people, minor details.
Anywho, the problem with such a busy-busy weekend is my lack of getting things done; paleo-shopping (and prepping), room organizing, laundry, etc. was not a priority, which means tonight after work will be a busy one: CrossFit / Shopping / Prepping / DOWNTON ABBEY - it’s back baby!, and snoozing.
I’m going 110% paleo-perfect this working week, and I’m kinda, sorta, REALLY, excited for it. A nice change from the Old-Liz, who would still be dwelling on those sugar-donuts we ate at the cricket last night. Onwards, and Paleo-wards!
Pret-ty excited I found a place that has a paleo-lunch option today! Wa-hoo! Still on track for a good week despite not prepping last night.
