What a week.
Well, I’ve not been the gym nearly as much as I wanted too. I’ve not blogged nearly as much as I could have. Plus my eating hasn’t been great. This is one of those weeks were I’m really glad I only weigh once a month 🙂 I’ve got two to three weeks to redress the balance and make sure I’ve accomplished my goal for the month, which is, dropping to ‘Severely Obese’ from ‘Morbidly Obese’. Haha.
What went wrong?
I’ve been on the late start in work this week (9am) which should mean I can go to the gym before work. Unfortunately that only happened once. Not because I decided not to go the other four mornings. No, it was just circumstance which meant I didn’t go. Here’s the breakdown.
Monday – Didn’t go :-(. Reason: Okay, so when I’m going the gym early it means I’m going to shower in work (which I’ve told you all about). I needed to buy a few ‘bits and bobs’ which I couldn’t sort at the weekend, so it meant I couldn’t go Monday, but, instead I went shopping after work ready for Tuesday.
Tuesday – Did go :-). A fantastic start to the day. Gym then work, mega!
Wednesday – Didn’t go :-(. Reason: It was Lois’ sweet 16th Birthday and we have a family tradition of the whole of the rest of the family getting up early and all entering the Birthday persons room singing Happy Birthday. So, no early gym session.
Thursday – Didn’t go :-(. Reason: I had to swap to the early shift in work as I had a meeting at 4.30pm I needed to attend.
Friday – Didn’t go :-(. Jan is on nights at work so I needed to be in and make sure the sprogs were up and nearly ready before I left for work.
The question is, could I have gone in the evening, or, sorted out some other alternative? I think the answer is yes and yes to both of those questions and that’s what I need to sort out.
Look, I know it’s about lifestyle and balance, so I don’t need to beat myself up about it, but, it’s a slippery slope and I don’t want to be exercising less and less. It’s important that I
draw a line through this week, but, I shouldn’t get complacent and I need to plan. I’ve come too far.
Food has not been great this week either. I’ve not been really bad, but, I have been worse than usual, so, as of right now, I’m back in the saddle. What is interesting about that last sentence is that I nearly said, “as of tomorrow,” but, what use is that? Give myself license to fill myself with crap tonight? No peeps. AS OF RIGHT NOW!!!
The thing that is also really ‘doing my head in’ is my blogging and my reading of other blogs. I’ve seriously let this slip this week, so, as of right now 🙂 that is going to change as well. Get on my case people. Give me a hard time. This blog is so good for me. Both writing it and being an active member of the community of bloggers.
Thanks for reading. It’s still all good in the Bentley hood.
