So I know that I have been gone for a while and for that I have no excuses.
I just have not been able to work up the energy to post lately.
I know the reason behind it…. Not loosing weight!!!!!!
What do I have to do?
Well, I know I could start eating healthy food again, and start exercising more than once a week. But that would the sensible plan of attack to get the show back on the road. Me, I just keep thinking that I need to do something about it to get myself back on track and THEN NEVER FOLLOW THROUGH.
Here are the good things I am doing:
I am swimming every Sunday morning. That is fun; it’s even in with a squad, so it’s planned training sessions with a coach and everything. I am in the beginners lane and it is a push for me to get through the session, but I am enjoying it and don’t plan on stopping any time soon. I joined with a few friends from work, so we are currently keeping each other motivated. I am even enjoying the early Sunday mornings – training begins at 7:30 and will soon be starting at 7am as our winter is all but over.
I have also started after work walks with another co-worker. She is on her own ‘get healthy’ plan and so we are trying to help each other out. The plan is to walk every other night after work for 1 hour, and it will be walks around and along the Brisbane River; so they should be good. I will endeavour to keep you posted on how that goes. So far they have been lovely and very energetic.
These are the small steps that are doing me good. I just have a problem with putting all the small steps together so that they gather momentum into bigger steps that get me to my goal.
I know I have said it before, that I need to be focused and get on track, so I am going to stop saying it. I get a little tired of letting myself down and when I do, I usually go back a few steps while in a pit of depression. I am going to try and just get back to focusing on one day at a time.
In other news on me; there is only about 5 weeks until I fly off to Paris and I have to admit I am getting a little nervous. The planning and organising is no where near done. I keep thinking I may need to simplify the trip a bit and not have so many stops. I don’t want to be changing hotels every day, and where possible I really want to stay in B & B’s, so they need at least 3 nights to be booked as a lot don’t do shorter stays. Which actually suits our plans, but then I get to wondering if the places that we want to stay; are they going to be easy to get everywhere else?
Basically, my mind doesn’t stop changing about the plans and so nothing is ready to be finalised. What I need to do is just book and pay for it as I think of it and then I can’t change my mind :o)
So there you have it, not a lot has changed. I am so boring :o) I need more hours in the day to get everything done that I want to, but there aren't, so I need to get more organised. Famous last words!!
