well hello! I'm back in Australia! well, I've been back for two weeks now but I just havent had much to say health wise. I've just been taking it easy and trying to maintain... I came back to Australia weighing 71kg but I weighed in today at 73kg. Eesh! Must have been those meat pies! I hope it was just a once off.. I'll check again tomorrow. But I have a feeling it could be true. I've been eating things I would normally try to avoid... hot chips, meat pies, icecream (that is stupidly sitting in the freezer and calling my name!), sticky date pudding... and these were all eaten in my home! That meant I bought them and brought them into my house. Very silly! I could forgive myself if they were eaten out, or at someone elses house... but in my house I should have complete control!
This has got to change of course. And it will : ) Its been so long since I've been in 'diet mode' that it feels like I'm starting from the beginning. But its good. I've pretty much maintained for the last few months. I dont have that 'fuck, I have to lose the weight I've already lost' feeling! I'm going to get back into the 'trainers eating plan'. Start taking some walks - I'm living right on the beach with a beautiful paved walking track, I'd be a fool not to use it! And once we get some more money coming in, its back to the gym. There are a few options around this new area I'm living in and I'll start looking into them soon. I've got a free pass to one of them, yay : )
Also, I'm not going back to 9 - 5 design work. I'll be working part time and doing my own design business and working on a new business venture, so I dont have a set routine. Which is kinda hard... it feels like every day is a weekend. For my diet sanity I have to establish a routine! I'll be thinking long and hard about this one.
The other night I met up with some friends I hadnt seen in over 5 months and there were compliments all round on how I was looking! But really, I havent really lost any weight in the last 5 months. None of the girls had mentioned my weight loss before, so I'm thinking that they had finally just realised I was looking different, you know what I mean? They have an idea in their heads of what I should look like. I had slowly been changing in front of their eyes but they still kept that same idea. So when I met up with them after such a long time, they were expecting to see that original chubba and when it wasnt, it finally sunk in : )
I'll keep you updated a lot more regularly now that I have an internet connection!
