I have let myself get back into my old ways and I’m really feeling the consequences. I’ve gained almost a stone in the past few weeks and I’ve had to go buy new jeans again, something I really didn’t want to do! And I’m down to a handful of tshirts. I really thought I was going to get somewhere a month ago but it lasted a few days before people were all, ‘lets get a takeaway’, ‘oh I could really do with pudding’, ‘here Jay you can finish this’.... and boom I fell for all of it!
The few pounds I did lose are back and they brought friends with them! So I’m now 23 stone and 12 pounds. And to make matters worse my attitude has been terrible, I’ve eaten a fast food lunch nearly every day this week and I’m currently spending a day indoors gorging on everything I was stupid enough to buy at Tesco yesterday.
But there is a little bit of hope on the horizon for me. I am, I think, totally addicted to food. I just can’t get through a week without pigging out, and badly at that. But I thought I might be able to make myself do something (exercising), rather than not do something (eating). So as of next month I’m joining a gym near work. It’s not very expensive and unlike times I’ve tried before I’m not joining with anyone else, as that can mean me giving up as soon as they do. So I’m going to set a routine that I go in after work every Tues, Weds and Friday. I chose those days because on Monday I’m always more tired and Thursdays I’m usually doing something with friends, and weekends I don’t always work and won’t always be near work. And what makes me think I will go is I keep staying to do overtime to avoid the rush hour traffic, so I can use that time to go get a bit fitter.
If I combine that with eating some more decent meals then maybe I can lose a bit of weight, and maybe even stop boredom eating so much. And if you’re wondering why I’m starting next month rather than right now, A) Christmas shopping has taken all my money, effort and will to live, and B) Christmas food is going to take all my money, effort and ability to move.
So my new goals are, more exercise, less of the junk food, get down to 20 stone by summer.
Hope everyone is having a good time with Christmas coming up! Good luck with your new years resolutions.
