Feels good to be back!

Tap, tap. Is anybody there?

Phew. It's been INSANE for the last couple of weeks, and here's why:

- Started back at work after my maternity leave, and my work has been busy busy busy
- Transitioned my daughter to daycare
- Lived with the in-laws for a week while we were having some work done on our flat. This meant three - four hours of commuting each day to work (with my MIL, to boot!) - crazy.

But I'm finally back!

While all of this has been going on, my eating has been CRAP. No other way to describe it. I don't fare well when I'm staying in someone else's home and eating their food. That, and I was a little er, anxious staying with my in-laws for so long.

I'd come home from work feeling zonked, and made every excuse in the book to not haul my butt to the gym. I even convinced myself that I had a headache the other night. How pathetic.

Last night, I decided that enough was enough. Life is always going to be busy. Even though I'm in the middle of a transition, I need to start working in some good habits. I started gathering all my gym clothes, water bottle, etc. I was getting myself into a bit of frenzy.

The Hubby: "What are you doing with all your gym clothes at 11pm?"
Me: "I'm going to attempt to get up tomorrow morning at 5:30am to go to the gym".
The Hubby: "Really?"
Me: "Actually - I'm going to get up at 5:30am to go to the gym".

And that's exactly what I did. Well, the alarm went off a few times and I snoozed. I furrowed deeper into the covers. I clutched my pillow tightly. But then, I decided to haul myself out of bed and just DO it! It was too late for me to walk to my gym, so I went to the one in our building (downstairs). There were already 3 people working out! 45 minutes of cardio and some stretching later, I felt like a new person.

Since going this morning, I've been feeling great all day. Like, I can conquer the world!

I feel like I'm getting over the transition hump a bit - so I'm going to get serious about my goals again! There's an awesome class at the gym that I'm going to try on Saturday - will blog about it later. It's got me very excited!
