Where do I begin
To tell the story
Of how great a love can be
The sweet love story
That is older than the sea
The simple truth about the love she brings to me
Where do I start
Sorry, a little off track, but whenever I hear those words, “Where do I begin” it always reminds me of the song and the film. The daft thing is I do not really remember the film that much since I was just that little too young to appreciate the sentiment in it.
Anyway, back to topic. I have had three weeks off. My contract came to an abrupt end, I had a week’s holiday in Austria, and I have had a week off using a term my employer calls, “the bench”. Basically I am sat around doing nothing waiting for my next contract to start, but being paid for it. I am going crazy.
On the good side of things: I have been good with my eating habits, more or less, even on holiday; I have walked many miles, especially on holiday; and I have not gained any weight. On the down side of things I have not lost any weight. So here I am weeks later and I am still hovering around the stone mark I wanted to be rid of by now. I am only seven pounds from the start of my ideal weight and fourteen pounds from my dream weight. My target deadline is still 23 weeks away, so I still have time, but I am now feeling a little dejected.
Back to plan. I know what to do and I know how to do it. I am just being a wimp and letting calories getting in my way. That extra dish of ice cream I do not need, that extra cake, that extra blah, blah, blah. I know we have all been there. Alternatively I could get off my backside and walk a little extra, my good intentions have slipped a little, other than the week before last when I was on holiday.
What is it about good intentions on a morning, drifting away as a day progresses?
Good luck chaps and chappesses with all your hard work. Remember when God made man first he had a look, tutted and said, “I am sure I can do better than that.” Hence I am back to the beginning of my rambling of … “I know I'll need her 'till the stars all burn away and she'll be there”
