By 1 March 2015, i’d managed to go down in weight to 87kg. I was a very happy girl who watched what she ate and exercised as much as her laziness would allow her.
But, something happened…I got a boyfriend. Someone who told me I was beautiful and wonderful….someone who said my “curves” are what caught his eye. Someone who wasn’t disgusted by what I look like.
And obviously with new love comes loads of dinner dates… and we are both wine lovers… so wine intake has increased.
In the 10 weeks or so I’ve been with him, I’ve put on 4kgs. Sometime last week I weighed more that I have ever weighed in my WHOLE life… a super sexy 92kgs… just 8kgs away from 100kgs. This morning I was 91.5kg 😦
I’ve gone on a couple of runs with him… but he can’t join me everyday because of work… He has suggested running in the morning, but i am more likely to sell my soul to the devil than wake up every morning to go for a run.
I’ve not stepped inside the gym for about 2 months now… I’ve simply not felt like it. And I have suffered because of it.
The scale is showing me that I do not have the luxury of eating what I want and not exercising.
So I need to get back on track.
I’d told myself, earlier this year, that I’d lose 10kg by my birthday on 6 July.
Obviously, unless i stop eating altogether, this isn’t going to happen.
However, I challenge myself to lose 3kgs by 6 July 2015.
I have decided to do at least 10 minutes of exercise EVERYDAY. And by exercise I mean sweating, out of breathe, heart pumping.
I have an 8 week running challenge I’ll be starting on today… It’s for Mon, Wed and Friday… on the other days I’ll do a 10 minute exercise video.
By the end of June I would have lost 3kgs.
I am going to start writing again, because this has helped me in the past. When I stopped writing, I started gaining weight. Writing helps me confront my eating and exercise habits. and writing my goals helps make me accountable.
Also, I love writing about my achievements… and reading on previous challenges that I have overcome.
Let’s do this!
