So, it's back to the grindstone for me. Personal training this evening and a light supper, not a big evening meal with D. I have had my usual sensible breakfast and healthy sushi lunch so hopefully this will kickstart a downward trend for the next couple of weeks. [Update - PT was soooo hard today but I feel great now and have had just a simple supper and water. I'm back baby!!]
In other news, my team won the Pub Quiz League Cup Final last night!! What a triumph (tee hee). It was funny and we all bounced back into the local full of ourselves with our little silver plate to go in the pub's (currently empty) trophy cabinet - In Your Faces Darts and Dominos!! And I won March's rowing challenge at the gym. That's 2 on the bounce. I'm not looking forward to this month though - 10,000m!! That'll take ages - 45 to 50 minutes at a guess. Yuck.
It has been satisfying to see what 5 ordinary women can achieve from nothing. Just sitting down together in the pub a couple of times a month, sharing out the tasks and working our way methodically through what needs to be done. Asking for help where needed (that's how I got involved - legal assistance in filling in grant application forms etc and setting up a blog etc) and just plowing through. No egos, no arguments, no big committee mentality, no blokes. It's been great. That's not to say that we haven't had male assistance from time to time - working on the play area to keep it open in the meantime, helping us with stands for various fundraising events, running a barbeque at the carnival, a local architect helped us out at the end in fighting with the recalcitrant contractor but our little group has been at the core and I'm proud of us.
