So, the escalators have been down all week at work. There are 28 steps between the first floor and the second floor, I counted on about the tenth trip up. Down isn’t bad at all, but working the information desk all week has put me up those steps so many times. Though our General Manager has a point, our butts will be nice and toned by the time they’re fixed.

Unfortunately, to make matters worse, I also did a rush job of buying new shoes on Monday. And got shoes that squeeze my feet just below the toes. I have to take them back, but until then, I’m working with numb pinkie toes and some serious discomfort in my left foot. Lessons learned… even if I don’t like shoe shopping, I should take more time to do it.

Had a good New Year’s Eve partying with friends and then have a nice relaxed evening on New Year’s Day with some same and some other friends. 2012 is starting out well, with plans not only being made, but set into motion. As with every year, we are determined to make this one better than the last.

Struggling to eat properly. It’s winter and I want warm comfort food, not raw salads. Fresh veggies to cook are also harder to find in good quality. I need new and exciting recipes or something. Hours are going to start dropping at the store soon, so that might give me more time to make proper food choices.

Half a year, wow! When you do something long enough, it becomes habit. That’s definitely the case here. Eating this way has become a habit for me. Yeah, I still enjoy all the food I used to eat. Yeah, I still crave a candy bar or piece of pie. And yes, I eat those things occasionally, even meat on my cheat days. But, however you look at it, I’m eating much healthier now. I am eating load of veggies when it used to be only at restaurants and maybe twice a month at home. I am eating far less junk food, sugar, dairy and soda. There is more balance in my diet, and it has been very good for me. It’s the holidays now, and there are lots of temptations. I had three huge, delicious and off-diet meals last week for Thanksgiving, and I enjoyed them thoroughly. Christmas is only a few weeks away, and there will be feasting then as well. I am in more control of my health now, I understand that it is up to me, and the choices I make. So I can make whatever choices I want, as long as I’m willing to deal with the consequences.
