I couldn't think of a title for this so I've just left it as blank.
Another day off work. I know I need to rest, but I feel really guilty. I'm going to school tomorrow whatever comes. I don't like not being in control of my class. Gosh, my classroom. I wonder what state it will be in tomorrow...
Anyway, I had some good news from the bank. They have been looking at my finances and by combining my credit card and loan repayments, I can save around £30 a month. They're setting that up for me and I just need to sign some papers on Saturday. I've also saved up £500 over the past three months, so I'm going to pay off a lump sum of the loan too. I'm really trying to get this over and done with, so that I don't have it weighing down on me. I had to get the loan to buy furniture for my house, but I really wish I had managed to find another way to get the furniture without the loan. But to furnish a WHOLE house without the money...I think I needed to do it.
I've managed two days of tracking everything I eat without fail. I know I said 20 yesterday, but I think I'll try a week, and then I'll incorporate a new goal with my nutrition. The nutrition is the main goal at the moment. I'm actually very good with fitness, I just need to allow for the fact that I have the flu at the moment, and I need to recognize that a 5-6km run after I have JUST recovered is not a smart idea. In fact it will make it worse! Acceptance is key

So, I haven't really been on top of things lately. I don't know if it's November blues, or just me on a downer, but everything has just felt like the most massive effort, especially work. I'm actually off sick today, but I kind of wish I had just gone in, as it's the second day I've taken off this term and I don't really even like to take one day off. I've decided to try and get parts of my life on track, and bring it all together. So the first thing I'm trying to concentrate on is my exercise. I'm dedicating myself to doing at least ten minutes of exercise a day, along with 5 minutes of some sort of strength/weight training. Once I have got a 20 day streak (and I'm on 2 already), I'm going to then bring in tracking food. Once I have that sorted, I'm going to turn my attention to my social life. I think I need to reach out to people more, I'm very solitary a lot of the time. I'm really wanting to get my life sorted and back on track. I know I can achieve a lot, as the 7 medals I have prove. I just need to get my head back into gear!

Because we gosh darn do.
This is now my background on my cell phone, to remind me not to give up because I can't have a great life if I don't work for it.

I have discovered my food weakness.
I'm addicted to the stuff. It's amazing, it's comfort food and it's good for you!
Well, in the right amounts anyway. But in the amount that I eat it...yeah. It may well be the reason I have problems shifting weight.
I don't even think about taking a slice of bread. If it was a chocolate, or cake, I would pause and think, wait, this isn't good for me, why am I eating this. But because I get wholegrain brown bread, and I'm particular about reading the label to make sure it's actually healthy I just think 'healthy calories!'.
I need to maybe go on a break from bread I think. I don't know what it is I crave about it so much, but too much of anything is bad for you, no matter how healthy you think what you're eating is. I may start a streak, trying to not have any bread 2-3 times a week. Not a none carb fest you understand, but a reduction in bread eating.
