*covers eyes*


I am not doing very well with this weight loss thing. I have noticed that stressful periods in my life do 1 of 2 things... Cause me to stop eating or make me a little reckless.

Unfortunately, I am in the middle of a reckless phase.
I haven't been to the gym in goodness knows how long and I am not eating the healthiest either.

At least my evening meals are a little more balanced due to the fact that I have a nice kitchen all to myself so cooking is quite pleasant as I enjoy cooking almost as much as I enjoy eating.

I don't think that I have gained any eight but I definitely know that I haven't lost any either.

I am very aware of my short comings in the fitness/healthy eating stakes because I get that annoyed/ashamed feeling anytime someone mentions how well they are doing with their healthy eating and/or exercising regime.

Had a meeting with a friend (soon to become business associate) and she mentioned a detox which was based on Juicing (drinking various fresh fruit juices with added vitamins etc as a replacement to meals for 7 days) she said she did it and felt much better for it. Also considering the whole Colonic thing to try and rid my body of some of the toxins that can contribute to lethargy, poor concentration etc but we'll see how that goes as I'm not particularly excited about the prospect of a tube of warm water up the bum. Some options to explore I guess.

Right... time to stop allowing the hard times to dictate my food consumption (in either direction) and be better...

Maybe the word overweight would sit a bit better with a lot of people as the F word can sit a little harshly at times.
I have been thinking about this blog for a long time. Was slightly put off as the reaction to my initial decision to keep this blog was very mixed, leaning more towards the negative side. So after taking some of the more valid points on board... Here I am.

Still deciding on whether or not I will promote this blog in the same way I promote my other one www.dontthinkjustfeel.blogspot.com but time will decide that one for me and I am content to wait for the feeling to surface.

I have never really been one to mince words and when I used the F word earlier it wasn’t as a result of insecure self deprecation, just the real.

I want to loose weight. I am unsure in stones, pounds and ounces how much I would like to loose but I would like to sit comfortably as a 14. That means I need to let go of 2 to 3 dress sizes (depending on what I’m buying and where I’m buying it from).

Today, wasn’t the best of days. I ate Curly fries... but the day isn’t over and I intend to get home relatively early today so that I can prepare my lunches for the next 2 days a bit more properly.

I shall keep you posted...
