the week before xmas and I plan a return to SP...

Sunday, December 20, 2009

Evening folks

Its been a few months hiatus from SP due to me falling off the wagon and losing the 30lb I lost earlier on this year - I was doing so well, I cannot explain how annoyed, disappointed and fed up I am with myself - however...at least now I seriously intend to do something about it. This is 10 months from a number of big milestones for me.

I have study goals, fitness goals, health goals, weight goals and personal accomplishments to achieve.

Upside is I also have a plan - albeit loose at the moment - I need to work on that too - firming up the details is a priority before 2010. Another decade is starting and this one I plan to make the most of. My 30s are going to be what my 20s should have been. And every day for the rest of my life is going to count. I want to go to sleep every night knowing I have achieved something - however trivial.

Well, thats it for now, but I am going to go to sleep shortly - hope Monday is going to be a brief one - wish I could limit it to 8 hours at work... actually - lets make that a short term goal! It can be done... if I really summon the balls to get up and walk out by 6pm!

Night night all

HPM is in the house.

    Hi! Welcome back. I had wondered what happened to you. Hang in there, and take small steps. They do add up!

    Maybe the holidays are a good time to focus on something other than dieting?

Be kind to yourself.

Eat nourishing food every 2-3 hours. Move your body, even if it's just to walk back and forth at your desk for a short bit and do a few stretches. Get enough rest.

Hope your holidays are WONDERFUL!

Im too scared to weigh myself after a 2 week hiatus!

I will check on Sunday! Personal committment !!!

However as this is a Monday and I am now free of visitors, and anyone else around other than my little dog... its time to kick some butt!

I am starting to play badminton this evening at a local club as a way of kick starting myself pre-ski season and rather hope it is going to be good fun as I remember it! Got to get out of the house in any case and make these efforts!

I will write more later but for the moment I will eschew the foods I prepared for breakfast as I am now feeling strong and determined (at least until lunch?!)

Have a wonderful Monday all.

[Anecdote - I got into work at 6.30am - normal start time is 9am and my boss appeared around 7 - looked at me and said to the effect of... 'well at least you have a short journey in' to justify my early overtime?!?! Haaaaaaaaaaaaa

Im out of here at 5.30 no later!!!!]

    Dont think much of your boss. I hope he was joking. Good idea to wait a week before weighing yourself. You may be lucky and take off all you gained if you are really good this week. Wish you luck.

    I rather think I will have a weight gain... sadly but not to be anything other than deserved or expected especially after all the food I have scarfed down in the last few weeks! Sigh!!!!

Thank you for the encouragement though!!!

    This journey is a long one that will have lots of little detours. Just remember you are in it for the long haul and don't quit after one of these detours even if you have a weight gain.

I was 232.... nearing 231 only Monday - this morning 234-235!

Yes I know I should not be weighing every day but the whole thing is depressing me now and all I want to do is eat!

    Don't give up, you've been doing great. Unfortunately weight does fluctuate.

    It's sooo hard to resist that scale during the week...but your weight may flucuate sooo much that it can be really discouraging if you check it every day. Keep positive and stick to the right eating and exerising plan and you'll see the numbers go down on the scale once a week!!

Muscle pains and coughing.... a little freaked out this morning!

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Morning all!

I have survived another night and already broken the fast.

However, as I examine myself on awakening, this is the 3rd day in a row I have had flu like symptoms - a painful cough, and some muscular stiffness, which was exacerbated when I walked 20 mins up the hill to work this morning ( it used to take me 25). Im a little worried that for the majority of the time I am not eating enough - I know - simple solution to eat more, but really it isnt, as I could lose that tenuous grip I have right now on the whole matter. I am trying not to be a pig and in doing so am pretty sure I am creating too much of a deficit... how to stop is the question and increase the balance.

To make amends this morning - as I really feel awful like I want to just lie down, I had migraines yesterday and could easily see the same thing happening again today... so I made myself eat a bigger more calorific breakfast. I ate 2 eggs scrambled with some butter (shhh!), onions and mushrooms. Not bad, but no real carbs, I know. I have difficulty eating most carbs first thing in the morning in any case as I have a gastric band, so unless its potato and sometimes even that, it can stick and cause me a lot of discomfort.

Anyways... any sensible suggestions would be good.

I made a bigger lunch today too - a big salad with a whole can of salmon and a small can of sweetcorn mixed through it and a large tub of watermelon and some Quaker 90cal snackpack of something or other I threw in the bag!

Right, time to work now!
