Thanks for your comments everyone
Unfortunately, I have BAD news to report
I did exceptionally well yesterday, up until dinner time that is. I ran for well over an hour in the morning (gosh, I should join a marathon, I'd be good at that
) and ate pretty well too. Then came the alcohol...I guess it wasn't overly bad, and I drank a heap of water throughout the day and evening. Still feel a bit bad about it though
But that's not the worst of it. I got stuck talking to this moron guy at the end of the dinner. He was trying to get me to explain exactly what I do in my job. I couldn't answer him! All I could say was that I check my emails, surf the net, and stare out the window.... and occasionally do stuff with spreadsheets
I'm already pretty stressed out about the lack of work that I am given in my job. And even the few things that I do have to do, I can't motivate myself to do them! So, with this guy basically making a mockery out of me, and involving everyone else on the table, really was the straw that broke the camel's back! Oh, and somewhere in there amongst the humiliation he even commented that he only wanted to talk to me because he "felt sorry for me sitting over there not talking with anyone"
Anyway, I left the dinner in tears, went back to my hotel room and got stuck into all those extra snacks that I had packed away
Today I was meant to go to a breakfast, then I think a technical tour and an outdoor expo. Instead I just had a shower, packed my bags and drove home. I have just been eating and lying on my couch for the last couple of hours (I'm so full!!), and I'm about to go to bed
Maybe things will look better in the morning...
