My meals – perfect.
My snacks – not so – freddo frog, scone with jam and cream and a small glass of red (all today) are among the culprits. (Or I am the culprit, they are the subject). I am used to sugary treats. I feel I need them, particularly after a stressful day at work. I am a sugar addict…..Maybe I might take some bread, ricotta and honey to make myself a wholesome sweet treat??? My overall calorie intake is not too bad, about 1800.
Maybe I should eat more at meals????
A busy day with ward work in the morning (yet another emergency…..) and education session in the arvo. I found out that I will have to change training hospitals next year. This rattles me somewhat, I feel I am part of the furniture in my training group of hospitals, yet we are encouraged to change….this is probably a good thing. It means I will have to work hard and not sit on my laurels. I am glad I have the energy now to devote to my geriatrics training, it will require some study, focus and effort which I did not really have the capacity for last year given how ill I was. I am keen to impress my bosses, and more importantly, patients. One cannot try too hard as this can go into the realm of sucking up and nobody likes a suck.:)
I got my new free copy of womens health today – lots of useless facts that keep me amused.
Oh yeah, and I popped $50 on a fuel belt today – lots of expense for very little really but if it keeps me from going into glycogen depletion during a run then so be it.
One thing that the coach said to me last night: “You know why it hurts? ‘Cause it works!” My new mantra.
