I am back and here to stay!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I feel a bit ashamed that most of last posts where basically 'I have been away lately and have been a bit lazy lately but I will change this now', to only end up writing the same type of post a few months down the line. Okay, now I really mean it! I have been going to the gym off and on for the last few months and have kept a reasonable weight of 11 and 3/4 to 12 stone (165 - 168lbs) but I have been neglecting SP and haven't taken an active role in trying to lose weight. Before I tracked my calories and my workouts, and knew what I was doing and why the reason if I wasn't losing weight (i.e., not working out enough). The truth is that I have no excuses. Yes, last year I was really busy with my MSc and worked my ass off to get a good grade (I got a 'pass with merit') and I also spent a lot of time commuting last year when I started working again, but to bo honest I have been living in London since December and although I work, I do have some free time. Most of time I don't think that I don't use it very effectively - when work is stressful, I try and make sure I relax but watching a movie or seeing friends isn't going to help me lose weight, right? I am determined to reach my goal weight of at least 147 pounds (maybe even 140 lbs?) and want to lose the remaining 20lbs. From today on, I am gonna try hard, get back on track and start losing weight! Today is a new day and a new beginning for me!

    It's okay to stumble, as long as you get up just one more time than you fall. Just commit to losing a certain amount a week or month and go for it! emoticon
