Let’s call this the Transition Week, shall we? It wasn’t awesome but I did learn a few things.
1. I have a monkey on my back and it is called Caffeine. I developed an addiction during years of the business that is show with the unpredictable and often long hours. During a long tech week, no one judges you for drinking a litre of Diet Coke at 6:00 a.m. Then I left that world and got a job in an office that offered FREE COFFEE! All day! Until 3:00 p.m. When we have FREE TEA! Bad news.
This habit reared its ugly head when I realized how often I was drinking a caffeinated drink and not drinking water. Making the effort to drink water instead is hard when I’m sleepily dragging myself along but I feel much better when I’m sipping water all day.
2. This week has been a good reminder that I need to make an effort to eat more fruit and veggies. And in order to do that, I need to buy them more often.
3. When I decided on walking 3 or 4 times a week and doing yoga 3 or 4 times a week, I thought I was darn clever. If the baby was having a good day and napping well, I could do yoga. If the baby was having a fussy day, we would go for a walk. We had a string of fussy and rainy and icy days. I managed 3 walks (good!) and 1 day of yoga (boo!).
The weather this week is supposed to be awesome so walks should be very doable. And I hope that I get in some yoga, too because I miss it.
4. Avoiding junk food? Ahem. Well, there’s always next week, though I am slightly concerned about Easter chocolate going on sale.

Week 1 Conclusion: Feeling awesome about a renewed love for yoga and drinking water. Feeling not-so-awesome about what I’m eating and being shut in with crappy weather.
