Woke early with a bit of gastro. May have eaten too much the proves day and now paying for it. Anyway utilised the early time to get ready and walk the 35 minutes to the station. 

Once at the station, the train arrived as I did, so boarded and arrived at work really early. The day was fairly quiet except to spend the day with a project that I was glad at 4.00 pm when the supervisor said no more work as he needed to promote the work. He also suggested to go home and thanks for the day.

At lunch, joined my work colleague and discussed a few things about life etc. 

She seems to be working too hard, only taking half an hour for lunch and worried about if there is work outstanding before taking about 15 minutes to pack up to go home each night. She may be fairly new to the workforce but work/life balance is important. 

I am praying for her that she doesn’t go down the stress path.

Once I arrived home, went through my menu for the next day and proceeded to make the walnut salad, for lunch, and initial preparation for raw porridge for breakfast. Raw porridge involves rolled oats and LSA (linseed, sunflower seed and almonds in a powder), in hazelnut or almond milk, with currants, blueberries and a banana. Being raw porridge means it is not cooked but put through a blender. I decided on another strategy, soak the LSA and oats overnight then add the fruit in the morning. Otherwise, I will have to buy a blender tomorrow!

Once that was over, completed this blog, had a hibiscus and passionfruit herbal tea, took my last BGL reading for the night and went to bed.

This whole process so far has been really worth it for me and I am feeling so healthy now.
