>Famous last words

>This morning I took very great pleasure in waking the cats. Both of them. And then I had to physically put them outside as well. Both of them. Then both were very keen to come in again later before I left for work. I’m wondering if there’s a big storm coming, or chilly/wet weather. They normally start to get me up at 4:30am. It’s unusual for one of them to sleep in never mind both.

When I got to work the internet was down. I fired a quick email off to favourite techie, and 5 minutes later we had a round robin, all staff email saying that the internet was down. It seems to be working again now …

Famous last words.

I had a good, steady, productive day yesterday. I started with diary work, which always puts me in a good mood, but I also managed some writing work and some ironing – shock, horror. In fact, in all I managed a total of 140 minutes of activity, which were all loaded into the Wii, which was also dragged out of hibernation. I’m only going to use that for tracking, yoga and balance board games because I think I get plenty of other exercise while I’m out walking, or walking around the supermarket, or sightseeing (more walking), or doing housework (ironing, Henrying, cleaning windows, changing beds, etc). After quite a lazy weekend, I was exhausted by tea time. But at least it was productive.

The health and fitness regime started again yesterday, along with the diary work, and I’ve started to write down everything I eat as well as all of my activity. My weight has ballooned in recent weeks and I don’t know why when I’ve been so active, but I have been eating junk, and at quite odd times. I also needed to give myself a good kick up the bum after the fug of the weekend and writing it in the diary helped with that.

Another thing I seem to have taken my eye off is the budget. It’s not a problem, I’ve not overspent, but I’m not meticulously writing everything down, and I know from experience the slippy road that this leads to.

The Matlock Illuminations are currently on. I’ve put a call out on Facebook and am hoping to meet up with one or more of my Brummie mates, and any local mates, before 30 October. If no-one can make it, I’ll still go anyway.

I’m back at work and I’m feeling very calm. My boss is back from his holiday and I have nearly all of the pdfs in. It’s a 4-day week and I reckon the magazine will have gone to press by the end of it.

    >I've almost given up on losing weight – I'm to the point of just wanting to maintain it right now. I only have so much energy for everything – and losing weight takes SO much physical and mental work. So I still eat good, but I allow myself treats, and I exercise almost every day. But I'm not going to kill myself to be a size 7 (which is what I was all thorugh college). I'm trying to accept my body more for the way it is now – and if I can keep it at this weight, I think I'll be ok.

    >Whenever I feel very low about weight, etc, I look back on pictures where, now, I think I look gorgeous compared to how I think I look now, and I remember how much I hated my body then but what I'd give to have it back now.If you get my drift …
