My boss has set me a challenge, well, more a little bit of healthy competition.
You see, it turns out we shared a New Year resolution to shed two stones.
But I have to be honest and admit I’m not the most competitive person on the planet and tend to buckle if I’m set too tough a challenge.
In saying that, it would be good to have support from the office now that the boxes of sweeties kindly handed in by readers are empty, I feel I can try and get back on track.
To be honest it helped working over the festive season as I never over-indulged, though I was in a habit of a selection box for breakfast followed by a day of grazing on mince pies and Turkish Delight but I never even had a drink so in terms of over-doing it, I was quite well behaved I suppose.
But the moment I say the word, “diet,” I seem to give upand rebel though, I know my boss Alan Woodison, a keen cyclist, is focused as is domestic goddess in the office, Clair Fullarton.
As I write this, it’s day two and I’m already having moments of sugar deprivation but I know the first moment I step on the scales I will get a reality check.
