Back at work

I can't believe I haven't blogged since Saturday. 

Well I was spending a whole lot of time with the dog. It was a good week and I enjoyed having a little buddy. I was quite sad to put her in her house last night. I got used to having her around. 

This is her waiting for me to drop something while I ate lunch. She looks like she's falling asleep.

The fact is as long as I'm on a fly in fly out schedule pets are not an option unless I happen to find a man with a dog but that's on the back burner while I work on me. 

The week has gone well weight loss wise. All I did was track, had a few trips to the gym but mostly walked the dog twice a day for 30min each time. 

It was a rude awakening when my alarm went off at 4am as I did go back to work today. I had some nice welcome backs so that was nice. 

My fly up day is by far a difficult day food wise. This was my day in food:

4:20am Cup of pear juice (normally milk but I was out)
8:00am Oatmeal with 1 tbsp of brown sugar and a cup of coffee with flavoured creamer
12:00 Banana/ Peanut Butter sandwich and yogurt
3:00 Applesauce
3:30 One thin rice crisp
5:30 Gym - walked treadmill for 30min
6:00 Cajun meatloaf with green beans and side salad
6:30 Macaroon and sugar free cookie

My stomach was grumbling when I was on the bus to camp but I knew if I ate dinner first I'd be too lethargic to get on the treadmill. The serving staff gave me 2 slices of meatloaf but I ate one as the NI said it was 8pts and one slice was a good size and looked to be the 142g serving size.

I should probably try to eat something a little more substantial earlier so next week I'll try toast as I think I can handle that at 4am. 

I also started a list today of food to bring next week like healthy snacks and since I now have a fridge in my camp room some good options if there's nothing a dinner I like or I miss it. 

I stuck to walking on the treadmill today as that's been the trend for the past few days. On Friday I plan to go to Iron Reps and Zumba at the gym. Tomorrow will be a rest day as I won't get home till 7pm. 

I always intend to take photos but usually remember after I've eaten. I'll attempt that tomorrow. This weekend  I plan to post some pictures of my life at camp so stay tuned for that. 

Hope you had a fabulous last week and Monday.
