Remember me? (Probably not, I wasn’t around for long). I started this back in May I think. I lost 3kg all up, and was saying how easy it was to eat healthy!
HA!!! I fell off that bandwagon pretty hard! Actually, I jumped. Uni got in the way and I had so many assignments and was still working full time, so healthy eating, and sleeping (had to go 10 straight days with less than 2 hours sleep a night) got put on the backburner. I deliberately chose to focus on my studies instead of eating well, as healthy eating, I find, is far more time consuming, as it has not yet become a habit for me.
I have put back on everything that I lost (I am pretty much the same weight as I was before I started last time ~58kg). My body must be pretty happy at this weight as no matter what I eat/do I don’t seem to get any bigger.
HOWEVER, I would like to be smaller, and need to redo all my hard work to get back on track like I was. I am now pretty much finished uni (degree in Primary teaching) and can start teaching now, so I should have more time on my hands as I will only want to work as a substitute, and will be working less at my other job.
FI is making it hard for me as he adamant that I don’t need to lose weight at all, so keeps bringing me home chocolates (which I am eating now ) and breakfast in bed (he gets home from work at 6am as I am getting up for work so I end up eating McDonald’s breakies a few days a week. He is very sweet but kind of annoying.
My goal is to eat REAL food. Fresh fruits and vegies, and eventually nothing with hundred of different ingredients with numbers and additives I can’t pronounce. The way I see it, I should be the weight I am when I eat real food, and exercise moderately. As at the moment I am eating whatever crap I can get my hands on and never exercising. I don’t really have a goal weight, as I’m not sure what weight would look good, as the last time I knew my weight I was only 48kg, which is probably too small. I would like to fit back into all my teaching clothes as they were expensive, so maybe around 50-54kg. I’m also hoping to join the gym, but every time I get ready to go, I freak out and don’t end up going, which is weird as I used to spend about 15 hours a week at the gym, back in my fit days. I need a gym buddy but I don’t have any friends around here and FI works opposite hours to me. Hopefully I will psych myself into it eventually.
Sorry about the essay (and all the parentheses!). I’m really looking forward to creating a healthier me!
