Same Old, Same Old...

I’m so sorry about yet another unentertaining post! And I am obviously not doing a whole lot better with getting to sleep at a decent hour! That, plus the boring entries, is because I have a big party I am helping to host on Saturday – mental note: I must plan on how I will deal with the food that will be available there – and which I have been spending every spare moment organizing. I have a dragon boating regatta on Sunday too, but then things slightly slow down for a few days, so I am hoping to be back to some higher quality writing really soon!

My formal exercise is suffering due to the busyness, but I think my activity level has naturally increased because things are so hectic. I officially gave myself permission yesterday to do what I can without stressing about what I can’t get to until after this weekend. I just don’t have the time to feel bad about not having time!

Food has actually been pretty good, I think, with one glaring exception. I have been treating myself to an evening blended ice cream for the past few days. It’s more of a nutritional (or lack thereof) than a caloric issue, but I still know that I shouldn’t be having that type of thing every night. Apparently I am still battling a bit with the complacency!

  1. Glad to hear you are not beating up on yourself...but instead easing your way back to your new normal. Staying aware but not obsessing. Great job girl! Life. It's for living. :)

  2. Good for you for being aware of what you are eating, how you could be improving on your lifestyle and not beating yourself up for small missteps. You've come so far, and you look super hot! I'm still on my way down and hopefully one day I'll have a success story.
