I've been on the go ever since.
First of all, I just wanted to thank everyone who commented on yesterday's post. I definitely realize I was over-thinking the situation, something that I commonly do when I'm feeling a bit stressed - I just pick on one thing that unsettles me and obsess over it. The welcome basket was much appreciated, and in the end, I knew that I wasn't giving it to them with any bad intentions at all ... after all, they're on holiday!
I guess for me the concern stems from my own insecurities with food. Lately I'm so much more aware of what I eat, even when I'm on holiday. That's not to say I don't indulge and treat myself; I do. I guess what scares me is that I have found it to be a slippery slope -- it's when the once-in-a-while treat becomes an all-too-frequent occurrence that makes me panic. It just shows me that I still have a long way to go when it comes to how I view and handle food.
Most of today was spent at the embassy applying for my new passport - my 10th passport. I'm so fed up of going through passports so quickly because of all the visas I have to get. Still, I'm glad I get the opportunity to travel!
Speaking of travel, the most exciting news of the day was that I've been invited to be a keynote speaker at a conference in Mexico this summer!! I'm SO excited - I've never been to Mexico, and although I've been invited to give a lecture once before, this is the first time it's as a keynote speaker! Now I have to start figuring out what to say ;)
Other than that, I've just been busy doing errands and trying to catch up on some rest. Yesterday's mega-boxing workout followed by 5 km has left me feeling crazy sore. Needless to say, I did not make it to the gym today, but I hope to make it up later in the week.
On top of not going to the gym, today was a carb-filled day. I didn't overdo it. I just ate more carbs than I normally do. I did, however, also eat fruit - which is something, as you may have guessed from my weekly summer challenge updates, I have been struggling to do.
So, yes, overall, today has been an off-routine day!
