OK, so you are full of enthusiasm and ready to shed the weight through healthy eating and exercise when all of a sudden life hits you with one of its surprises. Whether pleasant or nasty, life always seems to get in my way. Just when I think I have my mind focused on what I want, which is to lose weight and get fit, something crops up.
For the last 7 years I have worked really hard to get my degree and move into a successful job. I am very driven in my work and very focused. This is at the expense of my health. I do lots of charity work and have a few hobbies but I often use my busy life as an excuse not to focus on myself. I wish that I could put as much effort into reaching my own goals as I put into my job, charity work and hobbies.
This week my husband and I have been discussing moving house and I have been feeling very stressed about it. I feel like it will totally disrupt our lives and we have just really got ourselves settled. I feel like I just want some time to get my body and mind healthy without 'life' getting in the way. I think that I self sabotage myself by taking on too much and then use this as an excuse to stay fat and inactive.
So maybe the title of this Blog is wrong, maybe it's not life getting in the way but it is me who gets in the way?
