Let me be honest...

Since you are all my friends and I know you will love me no matter what, I will not insult you by telling you anything less than the truth.
I have not been doing too well. I have been on leave for about three weeks and it was a difficult time for me. First off, I didn't know how tired my body was until I took leave from work. I could not do anything meaningful with my time. I reduced my workouts to a bare minimum - all I could do was the Leslie Sansone walk at home programs. Even though I consistently did these seven days a week, the workouts were simply not challenging enough for my fitness level. I hiked twice in the three weeks and did a long morning run one day and had two days when I got a small burst of energy and did turbo jam, but that was about it. For some people, this sounds like plenty. But seeing as how my eating was also out of whack, I should have done better.
Secondly, my leave was also a time of serious anxiety. Before I left the office, I had requested for a transfer because the work I was doing was beginning to affect my health due to the stress levels involved. I didn't know how management was going to react to my request so I was very anxious. The anxiety came with the munchies. I am now up 5lbs, I expected worse.
A week into my leave, I was informed that a replacement had been found but I still had to stay in my current station to train my replacement. I didn't know whether I was happy or sad, change can be difficult.
Today I reported back to the office and was quickly informed that my replacement was rejected by one of my bosses, so back to more uncertainty.
During my leave, I did two training sessions for a consultancy firm as an associate trainer. It was great experience and I enjoyed the training, but these things happen in hotels, food choices are not too great, I was nervous because I was trying to learn and impress, being nervous made me eat things that were not too good, especially sweets...
So here I am, 5lbs heavier and feeling like I have wasted three weeks that I could have used better.
Today I pick myself up, dust myself off and commit to doing better to correct what I have messed up.
