Update, getting back into it
Tuesday, July 26, 2016
My weight fell below 100kg a little while ago now. I am still hovering at 99 point something, so have started the plateau busting challenge again. Last time I did this I only did a week before I started losing weight.... so I stopped doing it. Um Duh!!! I can see the error in doing that now, but it seemed quite logical when I though "Oh, I don't need to do this anymore, its working, I know I'll stop it." Its as if part of my head is actively working against me.
On Day 3 the challenge reminds you to record your non scale victories, well I haven't been doing that either, despite saying I would. So that is what I've set out to do here now.
I was going to reward myself with a new hair style at 100kg. But at 105kg I had it done and spent loads of money, and then decided that I didn't like it at all. I do want a new image but I just don't know what I want it to be. As money is a bit tight at them moment I went through my wardrobe instead. I tried on everything in my whole wardrobe and got rid of all the fat clothes. I have taken them round to various clothes banks near where I live and that feels great. I then went "shopping" in the collection under the bed and found myself some new old clothes. Most of my fitting clothes are size 18 now, which is FAB!!!. Money is tight at the moment for us, so being able to kit up from under the bed is great. And I tell you wearing a fitted old bobbly jumper which I haven't been able to wear for a very long time is actually more satisfying than wearing something new costing money I don't have to spend. I'm going to do the whole exercise again at 90kg. I love that I can wear all of the clothes in my wardrobe if I want to - Nothing in there is too big or too small or too worn out/not flattering enough.
I guess my new healthy routines aren't actually habits yet. I let them slide over the school holidays so I could fit my days around the teens and am finding it really hard to get back in where I left off now that the schools are back. I have got tired and lazy. I can't' believe how quickly I can just slip back. So now I'm working on re-establishing my exercise routines and healthy habits such as drinking enough water.
