Feral Behaviours and Weight Gain.

Friday, November 26, 2010

I have been a terrible sparkperson since I finished school. I keep making promises in blogs and then don't follow them up. I have neglected friends and ST. I have been logging my food and weigh-ins but they are both disastrous accounts of my lifestyle's sudden decline in healthy living.

There are many reasons and excuses I could spout here but really it is because I am being slack. And drinking too much. And eating whatever I want instead of what is good for me. I have actually been exercising more but obviously I am eating more than I've been burning. I have gained almost a kilo in 3 weeks.

For what feels like the first time (but probably isn't :)) I feel a little stuck. My calories have been creeping up steadily and I am struggling to stay within my ranges (which do seem to work for me as I have been losing previously). I'm just not sure why!!!!!

This must be an emotional thing. Am I eating more because I haven't got a daily reason not to? (i.e. being out in public) haha you have to laugh but sadly it is true - I have become feral. No make-up. Trackies whenever I can. I don't care if I don't get to sleep on time (I can just sleep during the day if I really want to). I look like a depressed person....but I am not!!! I just feel unable to get a grip on it and start looking after myself.

I think I just need some goals...that or perhaps a real love interest ;)
Does anyone else ever feel like this or am I alone in my feral behaviour??
Probably hahahahahaha... Think I might go have a shower and put some make-up on - just cos I can!!

    Oh yeah, I get the feral thing. I can't get my act together at the moment, either. I'm going through this stupid rebellion thing at the moment. I really hate being a stay-at-home Mum. Love the kids: LOATHE the monotony. So now I'm just acting up and carrying on like a dumb-arse 16 year old. *sigh* I suppose we'll grow out of it....

    Maybe you're just rebelling from all the freakin' studying. You had to have been a bit tightly wound during the exam period. And now you're free! But yeah, a real love interest might help you to refocus on healthy hedonism.

    You are not alone my friend. I get this way and I know I'm not depressed, maybe just a little melancholy. Saturday and Sundays are the worst and I have to practically force myself outside because of a diva dog that needs to take care of some business. Sometimes, I don't even brush my teeth on those days. TMI, I know.
    Sounds like you're in a funk and it's one of those things that just works themselves out. Hang in there and this too shall pass

    Spike's naughty comments aside, I do this too. Some of it probably is a hint of depression, in that we find ourselves at loose ends because the structure and focus isn't there - at least that's how it is for me. I live in tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie, neglect other-than-basic hygiene, and eat and sleep randomly. And drink too much. I haven't found a great solution yet, except to force myself out of the house occasionally. At least exercise is happening - usually when I get like that I'm a lump.

    "I think I just need some goals...that or perhaps a real love interest ;) " Highly recommended. It's working out well for me. And we get plenty feral, believe me.
