TGIF! It’s been a hectic and busy week at work and I’m glad we have a 3 day weekend ahead of us. Eastern Monday is a holiday in Holland.
Tuesday I had to take notes at a meeting. Long day because it was outside the office, a 75 minute drive from home. I left at 9 am and opened the door at home at 8.15 pm.
We have this meeting 6 times a year with our management team and 7 franchisees. One of the franchise is going to retire and Tuesday was his last meeting. He has been present at this meeting since the first time I took notes at it, 10 years ago. He had a speech and at the end of it he said he wanted to say something to me personally. He told me how much he had appreciated me everything I’ve done before, during and after the meeting and how I’ve helped him. He said he couldn’t remember not seeing me in this meeting (which is correct because in the 10 years I’ve worked for this company I haven’t missed on of these meetings). Ha had bought me a present: a silver broche with a feather and a perfume voucher. I almost started crying because it was so sweet and I don’t receive compliments very well: they make me blush. But it felt so good to be appreciated.
I still owe you an update about my IBS problems. I’m happy to tell you they are gone! The last time I wrote about it on my blog and mentioned I was going back to normal eating (which I did) my problems were gone after a week and never came back. I’m very happy with this.
Then there is the weight loss issue: I decided to drop the 180 days challenge (I won’t reach goal weight at my birthday). I need to lose about 6 kg (approx 12 lbs) till goal weight. I will still work on that by using Fatsecret and the 90/10 rule. But I don’t want to write about it anymore, I’m tired of writing about it. I will give one update at the end of the month how much I lost that month and of course share it if I reach goal weight.
I will write about running and other workouts because that’s something I like to do (did I actually write that? Me the couch potato in the past?). I will write about what I’m doing, about Bella, about knitting and cross stitching. Basically about everything I already do except about weight loss.
We don’t have plans yet for Eastern. Sunday we will visit both our mothers after we had our traditional Eastern breakfast together. Tomorrow night we’re going bowling with 4 friends with dinner afterwards. We will probably end up in the garden with the fireplace at my friend’s house. Look forward to tomorrow.
No update this week because I didn’t knit at all last week. I was so tired at night that all I did was watch some TV and go to bed on time.
Happy Eastern my dear blogger friends!
