If you know me you know that I have a passionate dislike of people talking (complaining) about weight. To the point that I have walked away from people as they go on and on about the 1-3 pounds they gained just from eating FOOD. You know those people. The ones who weigh themselves every morning and evening and then come into the office and have to tell EVERYONE with ears how much weight they gained/lost in the last 24 hours.
Your body changes daily people. Get over it.
But I find myself in a situation where I just have to get something off my chest (weight? ha!)… apparently the combination of wicked PMS and the laziest possible week off of work = none of my clothes fit.
Yikes! I’d like to say that all these clothes somehow shrunk in the wash, but I can’t tell that lie and sleep at night.
I ate like crap last week and barely got off the couch. I can see the fallout from that in my face and around my middle. I am physically uncomfortable because of this. I can’t sit comfortably. I’m just unhappy!
So this week, I shall focus on eating better and trying to force myself to do at least 15 minutes of exercise a day. It’s too hot to walk the dogs, but I have that a/c in the house now so there’s nothing stopping me from doing a few crunches, pushups and stretching every day. Nothing stopping me except my extreme laziness.
Normally this time of year I lose weight because it’s so hot out I can’t eat more than berries, cucumber and tomato. With the new a/c installed, my appetite has NOT abated like normal. I am eating normally (for me) and last week I indulged a little too much (an entire carton of cookies? Yeah..um..)
It’s not even about how I look. I don’t particularly care about that (well, I do need my roots coloured soon. THAT bothers me!) It’s more about how I feel and how my clothes fit (rather DON’T fit). I don’t care what the mirror tells me, I care more about the fact that I am super uncomfortable when I sit down.
So, I’ve got to kick this lazy habit I have developed and get back into shape! I miss the little muscle shadows I used to have on my arms after Body Design last winter! I can DO THIS!
