Last week was my first week back at work after an extra long Christmas break.
I spent most of my time trying to get back into a routine and contemplating the vastness of the brand new year in front of us.
I managed to get back out into the King Wiliam Historic District for a few walks during lunch, trying to ward off the restlessness that comes with being cooped up in a cubicle after nearly three weeks off.
I ate smart, avoiding terrible fast food and developing a bit of an appetite for Panera salads.
I didn’t, however, manage to keep up with my workouts. You win some, you lose some, I suppose, only in this case it almost certainly means I won’t be running the 3M Half Marathon next weekend as scheduled.
Nevertheless, I’m hopeful that the year at work provides opportunities to choose to reaffirm our values and to refocus on the whole person. I know for certain that this is something I plan to focus on, even if it takes me out of my comfort zone.
It should be a fun ride.
