Last time I joined Sparkpeople, this is what I achieved. And then finals happened, and now I've put all the weight back on, plus some more on the side. I'm disappointed in myself, I'm upset and a little angry that I let this happen, but in the end I'm not going to gain anything from lingering on it.
The only way I can make myself feel better? Is by DOING something about it.
So - I leave the country on Thursday for 29 days. That's one week of holiday, and three weeks of working with a set of 60 or so unstudied skeletal remains from Pompeii. It would be easy to simply say that I'll leave it until I get back, that it's impossible to lose weight while I'm on holiday - but I am done making excuses. This won't sort itself out on its own!
I'm going to start now and I'm going to do my best while I'm in Italy. My accommodation while I work has its own kitchen, so hopefully to a certain extent I'll be able to control what I eat - and I'm right on the slopes of Vesuvius, which will have some wonderful walking trails.
So, I might disappear for a month only a few days after starting this new sparkpage - but rest assured I will be back, and determined as ever!
