Finally have some time to sit down and write. Just coming off an unbelievably busy month. I seriously questioned whether ot not I was going to make it! I made it but not unscathed, I sit here trying to breathe through a very stuffed up nose, sore throat and watery eyes. Yep I have a cold, UGH!
It doesn’t surprise me I am under the weather; I am actually surprised I didn’t get sick before this. April just seemed to get busier and busier; Last week we have 5 trade shows/events in 5 days. It started last Monday & Tuesday with me baking 25 dozen muffins for an Autism conference on the Saturday. Wednesday was spending the day getting everything pulled together and organised for all the events, Thursday night we had an event in the evening, then Friday was set up for the Total Health Show, Friday night the show started and ran until Sunday. A collegue worked the Total Health Show and I was up Saturday morning at 4:30 am to get to the airport and hop on a plane to Vancouver for the CHFA West. Landed in Vancouver at 9am, hopped in a cab to the convention centre and worked the show until 5pm. Worked again Sunday at the show, meetings Monday and Tuesday, back on a plane Tuesday night and landed Wednesday morning at 6am. Wednesday I should have slept when I got home but had too much to get done because I was gone for 4 days so I didn’t get to bed until 9:30 that evening, only to be up at 4:45am to get ready for Dragon’s Den. Whew!
Seeing it in writing kind of overwhelms me again. I was feeling so guilty about not keeping up with my healthy eating and exercise. Actually what I found hardest was actually eating. I have a very bad habit of skipping meals when I am busy. Most days it was 5pm and I realised I had not eaten all day, not good because my blood sugar goes haywire, then it starts a cycle of craving sugar and feeling so exhausted, not being able to sleep and being generally bitchy.
The good news is I have not gained back any of the weight I lost before the busy month started so I count that as a victory. Time to get back into the routine and figure out how to get through a busy period without falling completely off the wagon.
