The last few weeks I have been consistently using my new exercise bike every day- started with 15mins/day the first week, then 20 etc until I got to 30mins/day, now I am increasing the resistance slightly each week.
I feel pretty good about it.
Eating is still much the same as always, but I have a new motivation to curb the overeating now that I have acid reflux which is pretty uncomfortable and also results in nausea, especially in the morning, adding credence to the popular idea that I may be pregnant. Which I am definately not.
Today I am feeling exhausted and groggy. I went to bed late the last few nights and have also not slept very well due to the heat and noise.
Went to look at 2nd hand furniture today with Mum, nothing suitable except a nice pair of bedside cabinets which were well made but needed a bit of TLC and they smelled STRONGLY of stale smoke which I don't know if I could remove or not, so I gave those a miss.
Went to the local recycle centre as well, and donated 2 or 3 bags of clothes. It was quite hard to part with some of them which are really nice and have hardly been worn, if at all, but my sister doesn't like them and there is no way I could fit into them any time soon, if at all. I also got rid of some that I like, that fit, but I never wear them.
Have rearranged stuff so that I can make use of the space I have made and find things more easily and have things I need more accessible. I kept some of the clothes that I really love, even though they are way too small, just in case, and the ones that are closer to the size I am now.
Yesterday I was rearranging my kitchen cupboard, which my sister says is a shed, because it is large and has paint in it, amongst many other things. It is still very full, but more organised. I took out my old art folder during the process, and while I was taking a breather from moving all the stuff around, I looked through my old art work from school. I was actually shocked how good some of it was- I thought did I really draw that?!! I have been thinking I'd like to do some art again, and that's kind of encouraged me, but also intimidated me a bit because I won't be able to match what I could do 11 or 12 years ago straight off. I have to get over this perfectionism- art is supposed to be enjoyable!!!
