Send positive thoughts for your friend. That is an awesome policy Germany has. I wish we had something like that here. I was back to work after 6 weeks with both kids.So besides the emotional turmoil, this also meant that all her workload was immediately dumped on me and since she might not return at all (she is going to take at least the 12 months maternity leave every one in Germany can claim - actually it’s 14 months for both parents that can be split however you want, but one parent can’t take more than 12 months), I can’t just do the most important stuff and leave the rest for when she returns as I would usually do when she is on vacation. It’s going to be a stressful couple of months until they figure something out about replacing her.
I would also say BOTH! I get outside more, going to walks or bike rides or swimming. So exercise can be up. But I'm also not on a work routine anymore since school is out and I'm a teacher. So some days I'm more lazy than during the school year. I also tend to use summer to catch up with friends and have a few drinks (especially those fun frozen drinks that are high in sugar). But I eat less of those bad comfort foods in the summer and more salads and fresh fruits/veggies. And I'm also in shorts and tank tops or bathing suits more, so I am motivated to keep in shape a little more as well.Good Morning, all, and happy Topic Tuesday!
For today's question:
Since I work on the school calendar, I'm thinking about the transition to summer right now. Weather is warming, school is ending…does summer help or hinder your progress toward your healthy goals?
I'm doing Keto. My doctor recommended it earlier in the year to try to improve my blood glucose and cholesterol numbers. I was pre-diabetic and she was wanting to put me on a statin for cholesterol. I was really good for the first 6 weeks dropped some kgs and improved my blood work numbers. I have slipped a bit in the last 2 months though - I am still mostly good but the take-away slipped in a bit more than it should. Tonight I held strong a take-out almost snuck in but then I found some resolve and stuck to making dinner.What's your food plan like @4Mickeys
