Just because I'm unemployed doesn't mean my bod's on vacation
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
So, since being unemployed officially since March, I have gained 4 pounds. I am at 146 lbs now, and am 5 foot 4, small frame.
Lets face it, being unemployed in Switzerland is amazing because you can collect unemployment even if you quit your job. I am getting 70% of what I made before per month.
So, its been a sweet life. Sleeping in, applying for about 10 jobs per month, with not too much pressure as I am single, have no debts and could benefit from unemployment insurance for 1.5 years. Not bad!
But somehow, my motivation for exercise got killed along the way. I would very caaasually work out 1 or 2 a week, or not at all. Kind of maintain my clean eating habits, but with a bit more booze than last year when I swore it off because of candida.
Also, I had to kind of start from scratch with couch to 5k after being off it all winter. Last year I got up to week 5. So far this year I can't get past it, I was actually doing even Worse because I couldnt even properly finish the runs and always felt like a failure at the end because I was not motivated to stick it through. I was always running in the evenings.
Fast forward to today: Today I ran, but I ran in the morning, and I finished all the runs!! I feel proud of myself. I didnt let my brain come up with all its self-sabotaging excuses like it does in the evenings, I took advantage of using my body when my brain didn't know any better to argue.
So, I really want to get rid of this @ss shelf I've got on me. I hate tracking like hell, but I am going to try to do it again to get myself going. I have the time, I need to get back on the wagon.
Anyhoo, might go to france to go workout wear shopping because the euro is so weak next to the franc!
