So no evening training session - which is no bad thing as my lower back is still a bit painful, largely I think due to the incredibly uncomfortable chair I have at work. It is a grey and depressing day today and matches my mood - I slept very badly last night and am struggling to stay awake with eyes that feel as though they were rolled in sand this morning. And the fact that someone spent the morning using an electric drill in the office really improved my mood....
I think I'm getting depressed again, and may have to go back to the doctor to talk about
mind mood altering drugs ;-) I've always been very reluctant to follow that path but I don't seem to be doing too well without it these days, and I don't think its fair to myself, my family, or indeed you guys to just wallow in it. Although I'm sure if you've read for very long you will instantly realise the degree of panic that will ensue if I get a prescription and (as I hear is often the case) I immediately start gaining weight... anyway, appointment made for next week so I'll have to see what happens...
I didn't walk either, instead eating at my desk and reading an absolutely brilliant book-from-a-blog called 'More Blood, More Sweat and Another Cup of Tea' - its based on a blog by Tom Reynolds, pen name for a member of the London Ambulance Service, about his working life and experiences, and a lot of it is very funny while other chapters make me rage - or cry, depending... This is his second book, and I'm sure he'll have the scope for several more!
Breakfast: All bran with berries
Lunch: I wanted to get a baguette from the sandwich van - didn't fancy soup today - but I failed to hear the announcement that the van was at the office, so I had sweetcorn chowder and a banana toastie again - still yummy!
Dinner: Chicken shish kebab with pitta and sala
Snacks: Greek yoghurt with fruit & granola; protein bar because my protein percentage was too low
And a gingerbread pumpkin…
