Gah, where do I start!
Having lost almost 3 stone with a combo of stress and Slimming World I stopped to take part in a project about weight loss shakes. Something I regret as apparently I do not react well to shakes of any kind and am now a stone heavier than when I started. Gutted! By now I should be almost at target and feeling so much better about myself yet here I am again feeling sluggish and heavier than ever.
I know that I am still 2 stone down in the long run but I am kicking myself and punishing myself more and more every day, this in turn means I am eating the wrong foods and drinking again, just a glass of wine or gin here or there but I can feel it on my waistline.
Being a complete stress addict means that my weight sits around my stomach area too so I constantly look like I am 7 months pregnant and THIS IS SO NOT WHERE I SHOULD BE NOW!
What I really need is an accountability buddy or something that is going to give me the shove I need to get back on track, maybe I need to get my a*s in gear and get back to Slimming World. I have a mountain of exercise DVDs so there is no excuse for not exercising at home either – I really do love my 30 day Shred and Kundalini Yoga dvd so every day I get up and think right, today I will make a start…but it just doesn’t happen!
This is why I guess I am writing it down here!
My new oven arrives on Monday so I can get back to creating healthy meals, we have a holiday coming up at the beginning of September and I turn 44 at the end of next month too. As you get older it gets harder to lose weight and tone up so I know that I really need to make a start now. I am going to commit to making a weekly diary entry here to keep track of how much exercise I have done, what my diet has been like, share recipes and generally give myself the kick I need to keep back on track. By Christmas I really want to be down to what I should have been by now so 1 stone 10lb to start with.
Wish me Luck!
