My healthifying has slacked off in the last few weeks - after dropping nearly 17 kilograms in about 4 months, I've been gaining and losing the same kilo for the last four or five weeks, mostly due to the fact that I am bone idle, and it takes about 20 seconds for me to justify to myself why I am going to lie in bed watching TV and eating chocolate or cheese on toast rather than walk for half an hour and then eat a salad. Being healthy is a boring chore for me. There's meal planning, organising, researching, shopping... ugh. It's so much easier to have a glass of wine and watch Eastenders. This has long been a pattern of mine - I lose weight pretty easily, but I gain it even more easily. In my wardrobe are 6 different sizes of clothing. Can you tell which is the fat chick clothing end?
Under my bed are 3 boxes filled with too-small clothes. Including one that just has underwear. All those pretties just going to waste.
Anyway, the point of all of this is to state that as of tomorrow I'm back on track - I've done half my shopping (the grocery half), and I'm off to the market tomorrow to get all of my fixin's for salads, muesli, healthy snacks and so on. I'm back on track with making sure I walk every day, and I just bought new batteries for the Wii Fit board so no excuses there.
I'm heartened by the fact that so many bloggers seem to be on a health kick lately - it's nice to know you're not alone, and I'm picking up loads of interesting tips and information. I'm also working on moving both Lily and myself away from commercial to natural skin and hair care, but that's another post in itself.
