Routine? The added time of changing, showering...? Now that's defiantly a poor excuse! Nothing wrong with being clean and in fresh clothes after kicking off a few extra pounds.

First day back at work after a lovely three weeks off, so am a little bit anxious. I work as a manager in the mental health field and it can understandably be a stressful job.
I also developed arthritis last year and this is one of the important reasons why I really want this to work.
Anyway, let's see how my first fast day goes. Wish me luck!
