I have been noticeably absent these past few months but now, just like a humongous whale I am rising up to take a breath!
It’s just been far too hectic: I started a new job in September, the boys started Nursery and we moved house: ridiculous! Whose idea was that?
I had a rather funny notion that once the new school term started I’d have some time on my hands and I’d be able to go to the gym and look like the skinny supermodel I’m truly supposed to be! I thought by November I’d be… lithe?? And possibly…svelte??? Oh the allure of those two words. They’re so appealing when I say them out loud; they practically dance off your tongue as only slim words can.
However, reality bites, or rather I’ve been biting….far too much. As it turns out being a part time worker and a Mum that does the Nursery run, I’ve seen myself snacking on ‘healthy oaty breakfast bars’ and such like. There’s nothing easier in the morning than grabbing one of those little blighters and eating as you drive. But herein lies my folly. They are ridiculously packed with sugar and no more good for me than having Candy Floss for my brekky!
Hi ho, hi ho it’s off to the gym I go….but it seems that my three sessions a week just aren’t going to cut it this time!! As a, shall we say, slightly more mature Mummy, those baby pounds are clinging on for dear life. The love handles of DOOM just aren’t going anywhere I tell you.
I’m beginning to panic! This isn’t what it said on the tin! I’m sure when I decided to half my income and go part time it was because I was going to rediscover my old body! And possibly, create an even better one. Hmmmmm….
So it’s Action Stations! I am going to try a ridiculous fad diet this week and get back to some writing; things that will hopefully see me regain some control! Or just lose some friends, as apparently eating cabbage soup for a week plays havoc with your social life!
