The last time I wrote here was in 2009. Somethings have changed since then in my life. I graduated uni, went on a 2 month trip to Europe which I just finished, and moved to Quebec, where I am now moving into a new place and trying to find a job, figure out services etc.
Before the move I had ups and downs in NS, times where my fiancé and I were frequenting the gym and spending time outdoors. I even completed 3 spin classes while there before moving here.
On my trip to Europe I defiantly splurged and ate whatever I wanted, which is why I went, to eat new cuisine, so I dont regret that. Especially since I was doing lots of exercise on the trip, I felt great anyway. Now I am back home, and havent gotten into the healthy habits I desire like going to the gym or running around my block.
Last I checked (3months ago) I was 145lbs, I havent checked what weight I am at now.
What I am struggling with at this point in my life is a lack of follow through with exercise and also pretty powerful sugar addictions. My dilemma is that I really enjoy cooking and baking comfort foods , and I dont want to stop making them or enjoying them completely. And I dont think I should have to. So I need to come up with some sort of sensible eating plan where I am not controlled by food but havent totally deprived myself from it either.
I hope that when I get settled in a bit more here in the next week or two I will become accustomed to healthy habits and learn about the fitness opportunities that I can afford here.
My best options are usually fitness courses, but all of them seem to have already started so I will have to look into it. I would like to start spinning again for example. I also plan to get my clothes sorted out and unpacked so that I can get outside and exercise, hopefully with my fiancé in the near-by park.
Starting today I am going to start tracking my calories, just to see how much I am on average over eating, and I am not going to tell my fiancé because he hates it when I do this.
