I feel like a failure admitting this to the world, but alas, there is no way to hide it, I have gained back all the weight I lost at boot camp, plus it brought some friends along with it. I could allow myself to wallow in the self pity pool, make a few splashes about how I got stressed out last year with school, finances and a severe illness in the household. Or I could stick my head above it all, tread for a bit but never get anywhere.
Or I could get out of the pool, dry myself off and say yes. I have fallen off the wagon and into the pool of self pity. I guess that is one of the reasons why I haven’t blogged at all in the past 10 months. My apologies.
So let’s start off 2014 with some positive things that ARE/HAVE happening/happened:
- 165 days until I fly to the USA for four weeks of HOLIDAY!
- Finally getting knee surgery in 10 days time
- I did a spin class last week with Ness!
- SW, my BFF and partner-in-drinking-crime is coming to NZ for a holiday in 83 days!
- I’ve got my timetable for university all sorted for the WHOLE year!
And how am I going to get myself back on the wagon?
I’ve admitted that I’ve fallen off. I’ve put my weight on MyFitnessPal to my current weight of 86.5kg so that any losses will keep me motivated as I weigh in each Monday. I have successfully logged every single piece of food that has fallen into my mouth over the past seven days, and I aim to continue doing that.
I am fully aware that during the recuperation period, my mobility will be limited (crutches) so I’ll be extra vigilant with my eating until I’m given the all clear to hit the weights again.
Learning to love weights is another one. I love my spin classes, I’m hooked. But weights means body transformation. Once I’m cleared to go back into weighted squats etc with my knee, I’m looking into doing the Live Fit programme. It’s free and requires only four days per week.
