Well tomorrow is my first day back to work. I'm excited. Normally I'd have the first day jitters, but I've worked here before so no anxiety on that front. What I am worried about though is figuring out how to juggle eating right, exercise, work, and life. I know it's done every day - but I struggle. I'm an emotional eater so when I have a bad day I use it as an excuse to gorge myself.

Since I've been worried about it I've worked on a plan, which is more than I've done in the past. I think that getting my exercise done in the morning before going to work is best. I don't see myself doing it after work (that's just me). So....I'll be waking up between 4:30-5:00AM to work out for 1 hour M-F. Holy shit that's early. Here's what I figure though - if I had to wake up this early for work I would. No questions, my butt would be out of bed and I'd be ready to go. My life is way more important than any job I'll ever have so this is something I need to do. I keep thinking how much it's going to suck when the time changes in Spring - but whatever. Just going to head to bed a little earlier. Dinners are planned for the month (yeah, I'm a little anal). I've got a menu up on the fridge and we'll just follow that. All of the meals on the "menu" are 20 minutes with minimal ingredients so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

My biggest worry is falling off the wagon though. I've been pretty good and I don't want this to be my excuse to quit. So all my blogging friends, if you wouldn't mind, if you see me failing to post my weekly weigh ins maybe you could call me out? Nothing like a little guilt for the conscience right?
