Sunday mornings

Saturday, March 17, 2012

I usually get up when I wake up, make a pot of tea and take it back to bed and read my book for a while. Sunday is the only day of the week I don't have to get up and be somewhere, so I like to treat myself with a leisurely start.

Not today however! I had friends staying Friday and Saturday night, which meant I couldn't go to Taichi yesterday morning and I didn't get to wake up in my own time today. But it was nice catching up with them so that was a bonus. They have gone off to do their thing today, so I have made a fresh cup of tea, and have taken myself back to bed to relax! The cats think it's GREAT!

Last week was a really busy one - lots on at work (short staffed, budget time, planning presentations for management meeting) and I had lots of social things on as well, so was only at home, Monday and Friday nights, and I was knackered! So not a single walk after work was done, and I couldn't go to Taichi class on Thursday. I did however do my workouts before work every day, so that was a good thing.

This week is not looking much better! I have a 3 day management meeting, with early starts, so don't even know if I will have then energy for the morning work-outs or the time for the walks in the evening! But I think I will need to do at least one of them to keep my sanity! Tuesday night I have guests staying, Wednesday and Thursday I am out with the management team for dinner, so once again, it's looking like Monday and Friday nights will be the only ones I have at home!

Despite all the busy-ness, I'd really like my weight to be under 70kg when I weigh myself tomorrow morning. I'm not holding my breath, but am sick of hovering at just over 70kg. I did manage a couple (or was it just one?) of under 70kg weigh-ins before I went on holiday, but I'm starting to think they were an aberration or just wishful thinking! I feel like if I can just get under 70kg it will all fall into place and I will get where I want to be.

So today I will finish my cup of tea, paint the back fence (it's been on the to-do list for a while), it's a nice sunny day with a slight breeze, so perfect. Wash all the bed linen and remake the beds in readiness for the guests on Tuesday, go for a walk down to the beach and back or maybe try a new loop, deliver the sour dough bread I made yesterday (I made 6 loaves - 2x pain de campagne, 2x seeded pain au levain, and 2x plain pain au levain) to friends, and just chill out. Nice :o)

Happy Sunday everyone!

    Don't stress about the weight. Adding stress on top of stress only sabotages your efforts. Just relax and focus on getting the workouts in, the healthier eating, and not so much on what the scale says. Track your loss in terms of measurements, the weight will come off, but weighing in all the time and putting so much stock in what the scale says, isn't good. I have stayed at 229 for two weeks now, and I wanted to hit 220 by my birthday in 11 days. I have seen change in my measurements, and I am not stressing over where I want my weight to be - I know I will get there :) You will too!!
