I got up today and for the first time since I joined the gym I actually have some pain in certain areas. I think I over did it yesterday. An hour and a half at the gym and then 12 hour shift (the busiest day ever). And I guess being up from 7AM till 5AM didn't help either. Oh well, no pain no gain (or loss in this case), right?
Anyway, I felt like I was being tested by higher power last night.
You know how I said that I wasn't gonna walk into our canteen at all so that I wouldn't be tempted by certain things? Well, I had to. See, for months now we have been asking for a new fridge in our tea room because the old one was leaking. Last night they brought a new one in. Great, right? Well, yes, it would've been if not for the fact that who ever delivered the new one and took away the old one didn't think to look inside the old fridge and empty it first. They just took the old one with all the food in it. LOL. So my chicken salad went with it. I was so mad at first but then I calmed down and decided to make my way to the canteen and get my dinner. Before I went in there I thought about what I was gonna have for dinner and I made myself promise that I will ONLY buy cheese and salad sandwich and nothing else as I still had my nuts in the bag to snack on later. And I did it. I tried not to look at all the cakes and other stuff right next to the cash register and even though it was quite hard I did it. Yey me!
I guess I'll have to deal with situations like this outside my home from now on but that doesn't mean I have to eat junk. It's all about making the right choice and I did that last night. I was quite proud of myself. I know it's not much but to me it was.
So even though I am in pain right now (my legs hurt) I am not skipping my PT session today. I'm going just before I go to work and if I have some time I might actually have a massage to relieve the pain. That's another bonus at the gym. You have to love it.
