Coming up for air
Monday, March 08, 2010
I've stayed a bit scarce here on SP the past week or so. Not feeling like myself at all and generally not in a good state of mind. Needless to say the pounds packed on. Partly because of my eating habits and partly because I stopped moving. I went to the gym once last week! I had good intentions for last week, but things just didn't work out as planned.
This week it seems like the same fate will be befalling me again. Our car broke down on our way back from my In-laws yesterday. We were about a 120km from our destination when it happened. Luckily it was right at the only petrol station on the stretch of road! So, we could sit down in the shade and get something cold to drink. It was hot! 40deg. Celsius.
So, no car for today and maybe tomorrow. Wednesday my husband needs to be somewhere else for work and on Thursday we will be gone from home all day. Getting to the gym will be tricky to say the least.
My son turned 8 on Friday! EIGHT! I still find it hard to believe - that is halfway to 16! And to think that time has flown by so fast.
So we had a party for him on Saturday. There is still loads of cake left as well as sweats. And I've already bought for my daughters b-day that is next month. I've been having my fair share of it this weekend, and I'm feeling the consequences, so I better lay off the sweet things this week or I will be painfully rolling through the house by April 4th!
I do believe that getting my head back into the game and eating right, must be happening this week. I cannot extend it any longer.
Just a heartfelt thanks to all who commented on my last blog. I was really down, and the thought of you all being there for me, helped me through the days thereafter.
