Very late update!

Hi everyone,

I have already given myself several slaps on the wrist because of how late this blog is! It has been a rather busy few weeks since my last blog, and I just have not had the chance to sit down and give you all an update!

First of all, I have a job!! Unfortunately it is a temporary position for 6 weeks, but the recruitment agency I have registered with are hoping to have a steady stream of temporary vacancies coming up soon, so hopefully they will keep me busy for the forseeable future 🙂 I started last Monday and we (there are 14 of us temping there just now) had a very full on week of training. Thankfully it is all coming together now, and we all seem to be getting into the swing of things. It’s a shame to know that once we’ve settled into the place, we will all be moving on, but temping also has its perks!

I am still trying hard to keep myself fit and motivated. Last week was kind of an epic fail when it came to my exercise and eating habits. I think just being back at work after a while threw me completely out of my routine! But I am back on track this week, and decided to try swimming again. I haven’t been swimming for years, and because I can be prone to sore knees and a sore back, I thought it would be a good form of exercise for me. So my plan is to go swimming twice a week after work – this may change when I change jobs thought, depending on the time I get home. It takes so much longer to get home when I work in the city centre – the travelling is just a nightmare 😦

I’m also doing a lot better with my food habits this week. I did take nice, healthy lunches with me all week last week, but found I was very prone to bingeing when I got home simply due to being tired and having no energy at all. I’m doing so well, that I even avoided having one of the FREE cupcakes that were being handed out at work today!! I think I may have been the only person in the entire building who resisted the temptation 🙂

As I sit here, yawning my head off, I forgot just how sleepy I used to be after I’d been swimming – is it simply because it’s exercise? Or is there another reason why swimming in particular always makes people (me) very very sleepy??

Anyhoo, I do apologise that it is such a short post, but I promise my next post will be more exciting, and with more to talk about 🙂 xoxox
