Thin Post : Picking Up the Pieces…

Where did I even leave off with these things now???

I don’t really have anything more to say – it’s been a busy summer. About a month ago I think I tried to shock myself into getting in gearbut in hindsight that post ended up being a week before we signed the documents to buy our new house, so in retrospect, any notion of kick starting my weight loss and buying a new house and cleaning out our old rental house all at the same time was at best kinda silly and more realistically just plain mad!  🙄

Anyways, thankfully I think that I’m starting to see the light of day again, so I want to also start dabbling in getting things back under control, but I’m not going to kid myself because not only do I still have a lot on my plate (pun unintended), I’ve also got a lot of bad habits that are unfortunately going to take some time to work through here again. I tend to eat when I’m stressed, and I was pretty well stressed throughout the entirety of the month of August, so a few less takeout meals here, a little exercise there – we’ll take this in baby steps!

I don’t know what appropriate goals should be for myself at this point, and I think at this point that’s perfectly ok.

Obviously I’d still love to be feeling better by the cruise, however that’s in just about a month so I want to be realistic, too.

Maybe some progress by October, and then some more by Christmas or something … I don’t know.

Also, I don’t know if it’s a good thing or not, but I already promised myself that I wouldn’t even look at a scale until after we get back from sailing … part of it is frankly that I’m just mortified of seeing the same numbers that I’ve already cleared once before, but I think my driving factor is simply that I really don’t think seeing a number would be any good for me at this point.

I know that I have a ways to go to get back into the swing of things, and so for a while I’m just going to start wandering down that road.

I honestly probably won’t even blog about my efforts again at least for a little while. I’ve got some little ideas here and there, but I think I need to take a step back and sort of re-focus before I try to tackle my weight loss head-on, and if I happen to find something that works even better in the interim, then hey – same goal!

Right now I guess I’m just kind of taking it one day at a time, but I’ll keep you posted. 😉
