Dear Diary: Christmas is over

Dear Diary: Christmas has been and gone. I can’t use it as an excuse anymore. No more pavlova for breakfast [okay I only did this once]. Actually I didn’t go to over the top this year which is a bonus. I think I am getting better at actually listening to my body and what it needs, I definitely don’t have it completely under control but I am getting there. I feel like I am starting to make better choices because I want to, not because I have to. And that in itself is a giant leap in the right direction.

Eating: Lets be honest here. The last few weeks haven’t been the best eating wise.  It wasn’t horrendous. I tried to get in a good breakfast most mornings… fruit, eggs, bacon. Ok there was a morning of French Toast and a pancake stack somewhere in there too. But I am comfortable with the decisions that I made in the situation. Other food was ok all in all but I definitely noticed that not having a solid plan over the last few weeks has meant that we didn’t eat as well as we could have. When 6pm rolls around and you don’t know what you are cooking for dinner it is easy to reach for the take out menu and we definitely did that a few times. Whoops.

Exercise: My training studio shut down over Christmas and only opened this week. I was meant to go on Wednesday, but my body was sore and I wasn't really in the right headspace after a few weird days. So I didn't go. Normally I would beat myself up, I would tell myself I was lazy and then I would eat a pizza or want icecream or something. This time I just got on with it. I went for a walk after dinner with the mister and then I woke up and went about the next day just as I had planned. I am taking it as a win people. Other than that I have been getting my steps in most days, there were a couple of shockers [like, I sat in the hammock for most of the day and only got up to fill up my water bottle or get something to eat bad...] but there were some days where I doubled my goal. I’ve realised that it is all ebb and flow in the holidays. So its time to focus back now and get shit done.Yesterday I walked home from work instead of catching the tram. Its just under 7km. And it wasn't even that bad. Might be a new goal to do it once a week. We will see.

Everything else: There is a heap of stuff emotionally going on… But I am trying to just keep focused. I am working with the awesome team over at Hey Dot, to change some habits and build some strong foundations and I can’t wait to explore that more. Stress levels are a bit high at the moment so just working through that everyday and taking the time out that I need to breathe through things and not make decisions based of emotions. Its hard work but I am getting there. Maybe.

Stats: Ok. So my weight has fluctuated a bit, I have gained around 800gm over the last 3 weeks. It was probably more than that and then in the last few days I have dropped some of it off. But it’s not a disaster. I think in the past this would of thrown me off but my head is feeling really clear and I have some great support from a number of different areas so I am feeling on track. Long may it continue.

  1. Good on you not beating yourself up because you lived life.
    You're always so positive online that it makes me feel like I can do it too. 2016 is going to be a good year :)
