Just a little update to say things are still pretty slow :) It's okay.. life is pretty busy at the moment. I didn't die from quitting the pill, so.. that's that :) I did manage to weight myself up to 166 pounds at some point during the holidays (unrelated to quitting the pill, I was just eating too much and kinda badly with 0 exercise) but now i'm back at my good old 160 lbs self, with all my good intentions :)
I eat well, I enjoy it. I had my first walk in weeks! months? yesterday! A bit over 5km in 1 hour, my FEET are sore, lol :) Feels good mentally though. I'll try to move a bit more this week and a bit more the next. I still have C25K in mind.
To be continued :)

Today was the last pill of my last pack! I decided at the end of the summer to go horomones free for a while and see how it's like :) I had an IUD installed a couple months ago and now that the overall craziness around me flattened a bit, I'll try :)
Have you ever got off the pill? What should I expect? There's some crazy stories out there on the internets, but my doc said not to worry about it. I was on it for almost 15 years! Time flies.
On other news, I renewed my gym membership today! :)

I feel a bit all over the place with the new SP interface. But to be honest.. it's like that in all the spheres of my life at the moment so I won't stress too much about it just now :)
Small goals for December, I have to relearn it all. Seriously.
1) Water. I've been drinking just too little lately. Sometimes as little as 500 ml per day, terrible. And it's HARD, too! What happened to me?
2) Bring back SOME KIND of physical activity.. I was thinking the gym and maybe I'll go back but I won't impose myself any regiment for now, I haven't even been walking in the last month.. I'll get high if I have to climb more than 10 stairs (which will feel good I'm sure.. :)). Maybe just walks, too. We'll see.
3) I'd like to say something about sleep but i'll stay real and shut up. I lack sleep terribly.. 2 weeks left.
4a) Try to log some food on the tracker, it would help me greatly and I know it. I just can't seem to find time to do it. The recipe part (where you have to add all the nutritional info of everything you put into and calculate everything and then divide it by the portions?!?) freaks me out. I do almost all my meals "home made" so I see it pretty much as a nightmare. I could just guesstimate and probably will.
4b) Intermittent fasting whenever I can. Because I like it, it makes me feel good, seems efficient and forces me to control myself, cause I suck a lot at that.
I had a lot of stress since September, the new job, training, i was "tested" out of my mind, lots of waiting for the results.. the lack of sleep and physical activities, not seeing my boyfriend, being overworked on the top of it... Bad choices all over. I feel those are small but reachable goals, just need to stay focused. Sometimes the day is just so busy I don't even get a chance to think. I'll see what I can do but I feel ready to start the machine again ;) Good sign, right?

a total failure :)
Something I didn't see coming happened, I applied for a new position at my job and got it. I'm used to the evening shift and my training requires that I'm on the day shift. OUTCH. I hate the day shift, especially when my boyfriend is still on the evening shift etc. I will be back on my normal shift in two weeks. I've never been so tired in my entire life and it's partly my fault because of course I could go to bed earlier, but then I'd see my boyfriend for about 5 minutes/DAY. *SIGH* I've been making bad decisions and bad choices and nothing I aimed for happened.. Oh well. December will be about the same as November. But I'll be "back on track" again, full force.
