A little plan

Oh that Healthbites, she's so clued in :) And I'm following in her lead to set a plan for the week. As my pals will know only too well, I'm really disliking my job at the moment. But the problem is, I'm not just disliking it and leaving it at that - I'm hating it, and starting to feel really down and affect everything. Today, for example, I am at home with a killer headache, completely full of stress and have been really crying. I can't let this job affect my depression and feed it.

So anyway, a plan is a good thing.

I also realised that it's been a while since i've been eating and drinking healthily. So that is on the list too.

Here we go:
Mon 27 Nov
*teaching a yoga class in the city 7.30pm, pasta with tomato sauce for dinner, no alcohol DONE
Tues 28 Nov
*yoga class (as a student) at Samadhi, 6.30am - no, run after work - no, cook dinner, no alcohol DONE
Wed 29 Nov
*yoga class (as a student) at Life Source, 7am - no, & teaching a yoga class at night, leftovers for dinner (and EAT dinner), no alcohol DONE
Thurs 30 Nov
*go for a run, Christmas party at night - only have one drink (well, I had 2 light beers). counting this as DONE
Fri 1 Dec

*teaching yoga class 6.30pm, no alcohol
Sat 2 Dec
*working at Homebake, no alcohol. This is going to be really hard.
Sun 3 Dec
*yoga class (as a student) with Narelle, 9.30am. Grocery shop and buy vegies! Plan meals for next week!

All up:
* more fruit this week

* homecooked meals and LESS TAKEAWAY!
* bringing food to work and stop buying it
* ask for help

I know that alcohol might not be a big deal for some people, but as I've discussed with W, alcohol to me, is like food is for others. So this is going to be a big week for me. And if I don't pass with flying colours, that is ok. I will just try again :)

Plans are such a great thing because it lets you relax and not stress out. Some people may think it's anal but hey, you find that you enjoy life more! :-)

How was morning yoga with Amelia? I am going to her class tonight....

This looks like a really good plan, good luck! I can relate to your alcohol thing, at the moment I'm not drinking as I'm on night shift but my resolve isn't so good when I'm on normal hours and the amount of social diversions increases.
