Full Moon Madness
Thursday, January 20, 2011
I have been missing.
Mostly missing in action, however at times I have also been missing inaction and overeating.
I have gained about 4 kg (about 8.8 lbs) while on holiday.
This is a lot of weight gain considering it has taken me around 10 months to lose 14 kg and then 4 weeks to gain back 4kg.
I know what I have to do to get back on track.
I am doing it. I really really wish I did not have to be doing everything all over again!!
Tracking food and fitness is something I have not failed to do over my journey so far - except for the last few weeks. How is it possible that mental tracking is so far removed from actual tracking??
I have spent extended time with my immediate family and closest friends which has been an awesome (and slightly unusual for me) bonding time. I feel I am on the cusp of something. I hope it is something big and exciting. Or it might just be the full moon haha.
I have also spent this time socialising and this means drinks - I have this sinking feeling that this may be my biggest reason for weight gain. Damn.
I wonder if slight anxiety about spending time with people I am close to and this feeling of something coming has caused me to eat more??
Also my son is starting college (high school) this year and I'm back to law school (and repeating contract law ugh) so I guess there are things to be thinking too much about :) Or maybe the moon again :)
Perhaps a list would help my musings become a cohesive plan.
This year I would like to keep:
- eating healthfully
- preparing healthy foods for my teenage son
- strength training at least 4 times a week
- walking to school
- my house clean
This year I would like to work on:
- focusing my energy into the right places
- parenting a teenage boy instead of a little boy :)
- studying and getting good grades in ALL subjects
- looking great and feeling confident in sexy underwear
- finding someone to enjoy above sexy underwear
- keeping my house tidy
So I guess this is my ramblings and official welcome to 2011 - happy new year everyone!!
Hope to see you keeping me accountable, out of the fridge and off the couch!!!!
