How have you been doing this week Gwynne? They actually started a biggest loser contest at work on Wednesday for the next 15 weeks so I actually think that will be just the accountability I need to lose this weight and get back in shape. So far this week I ran 6km on Monday and Wednesday, 3km on Thurs and 12.28km on Saturday. I also went back to the gym on Thursday and Friday for the first time in ages.
I have been having such a good week but DH and I are going to a steakhouse tonight for dinner (without kids) and to the movies (POPCORN). Today probably won't be the best. I am going to try and eat only half my meal and bring it home but we shall see!
NOT GOOD. I get on the scale and still weigh what I weighed right before I had Kerris. It's sickening and I just can't stand to look at myself or have my DH look at me, either. Nothing fits. I even thought about canceling some good workshops because I can't imagine anyone taking what I have to present seriously because I'm fat... and fat people aren't taken seriously in a professional world (really, I know the research).
I went to the gym. It hurt. I still went. Didn't help at all. Supply drifted, brought on an early AF. I haven't been back to the gym in 2 weeks (first, we had company, and now Kellen's been pretty sick with cough and raspiness). I don't miss it. Before, I LOVED the gym. Now, it's a chore.
I could go on and on. I'm just trying to find some motivation and I have none where I usually could muster SOMETHING. As soon as Kellen's better, I'll force myself back there, but I'm telling you, I wonder why I waste the time except that it's a good hour to an hour and a half of quiet me-time without anyone screaming, clinging or hanging on to me. I am not complaining about that, but God, yes, I do need a few minutes out of the week for me!
