I missed slimming world this week. I tried to use excuses that I was too busy or too stressed but I could have made it if I had tried.
The last few weeks have been stressful with Yusufs suspension and we have made it no easier on ourselves by spending too much money and deciding to move. All this on top of my stressful job at the moment and we are Both close to bursting.
It also turns out that we are most definitely comfort eaters so chocolate and biscuits have been a crutch for the last few weeks. This is a vicious circle because these “treats” give me some instant pleasure but actually make my body feel shit and get me more depressed.
I need to use tumblr as my bible and swear a fresh start for me.
I have lost nearly four stone in 2012 and
A) I don’t want to put it back on ever
B) its just not enough! I want 5stone by Christmas!
238- dinner at our friends Martin and Liz’s tonight and I was very excited. Los is a fantastic cook and we were treated to a roast tomato soup with homemade bread, braised pheasant and both tiramisu and fresh fruit meringues for desert. Obviously this was gracefully accompanied with a festival of wine and followed with cheese.
With everything that’s gone in lately I’ve realised how much I enjoyed just spending time with people I like. We ate, we drank and we chatted. Perfection.
There has been a lot going on in the last few weeks and both the diet and exercise have been victims.
I’m back in work after some leave now and I need to make sure that I get back in track for all of it. Things can get stressful but I have to get it into my head that the exercise and diet will actually make me feel better in the long run
