<< Work and Play
Going to Singapore >>
I am officially in a slump. I slept in until 11am yesterday, and today I slept in until 8am (it's a work day, and I have to be gone by 7:30am to get to work on time). I think my accident three weeks ago has really affected me, as I hadn't been able to exercise regularly until now, and I am facing a hard time getting back into the routine. I have put on 1.5kg over the past three weeks, which has really affected my weight loss goals. My work sucks at the moment (although to be completely fair, that didn't happen until my outlook has gone south). And to top things off, Kev lost his job after two weeks into it, which he spent four months getting into it! The idiot who hired him used the first misunderstanding (read personality clash) that came along to boot him out. So now we are facing another uncertain time with him not working. As he hasn't had a full time job now since May last year, I am getting really, really anxious.
Poor Tashalls, have a and a loo brush
It sounds as though you have got a lot to deal with at the moment, and on top of that you have been physically restricted by your accident
It doesn't sound like you should be worrying about your weight too much - changinging your shape is better done when you are on an even keel. Having said that, the fact that you've been unable to exercise is probably the cause of your extra lb or two. That is good because when you are fit again it shouldn't take you too long to shift them once more. Don't worry that you might not reach your milestone when you said you would - so long as you do reach it eventually it doesn't really matter does it? We should be using milestones to make us feel better - to give us something to celebrate and an achievement to boast about. They definitely should de-motivate you, so what if you won't hit it when you thought - you will still get there, I know you can do it!
k - 3 to 4 months behind on my next milestone but gamely keeping on...
Thanks for the , much needed!!! Not sure about the loo brush though
I suppose you're right about the shape-thingie, I can still get into my size 14 shirts, and they still look good. I have re-evaluated my goals, and think I should be aiming to get to 80kg by my anniversary (1st April). This gives me just over a month to shift 7 kilos. While I know this is a little ambitious, given my restricted movement, at least it is ambitious enough to inspire me but "reachable" enough to make me work for it.
I have decided to start walking again, not running, to get movement back in my leg, and I am also swimming every so often. I need to re-commit to this at least two to three times per week.
As for food, well Kev just got his compensation payout figure for having a broken foot last year, and we got pizza to celebrate the fact we won't be penniless much longer!
Well that is good news anyway
I hope you will still be there on saturday <beg>
of course! if we hadn't got the payout information, though, you would have all been surprised to learn you would be shouting me, or having me watch on the sidelines!!!
I can tell you now, you wouldn't have been watching from the sidelines
