Read between the lines…

So yesterday, changes did happen, and I tried to amend some of the bad habbits. I went for a swim after work and put a bit of exercise through the body. The steam room was fun, if not for being obscenely warm.  But, it is a start none the less.

During the day, more water was had, and thats important as I suspect thats a big one, I’ve missed from being good. I also managed breakfast, the chrunchy nut cornflakes, in an attempt to cut the amount of breakfast crap.

Lunch is more of a challenge as not been ready to make and prep, so thats the next one. But with honesty in mind that’s next week at the earliest.

So, it feels a bit of a mixed bag and keeping the head above water, but its treading water. More foundation blocks to be bulit and deployed and then a step change.

Cheers

It’s beginning to untangle!

Well the good news, is that some of my thoughts have started to untangle and I am beginning to make sense about some of the things,  I want to tackle. Now, it might feel like or sound like procrastination about “getting on with it” but if i’ve not worked it out, then any action is doomed to fail, as 1) you tackle an issue and not the root and 2) is it even the right issue.

I struggled with that last sentence and even the choice of words of problem v issue. Now, they are two distinctly seperate things as an issue may or may not be a problem. So I am going with issue for now.

May be dissatisfaction?

Anyway, work to do….

Catch you later

 

Pondering thoughts…

Hmmm, something have got to change, then becomes pondering thoughts, whilst you decide what or if to change. Now the decision is something has to ,

so thats easy then,  it gets more difficult to look for the what. I guess it depends on the scenario and what is going on, and indeed then what is the outcome!

And of course, that’s where I’ve come unstuck, I am usual ok at identifying an issue and then determining an plan of action as to what, when, where, who etc…. but I just can’t put a finger on it, or perhaps its locked away in a cupboard called denial. I’ve seen lots of old habits return and that’s disappointing if i am honest, and may be that’s what slowing me down.

Some more time, and idle thought is needed, as one thing I know is that I cant force it.

 

 

Another week…

Hello,

Another week, and weekend survived… By and large, its been positive and food hasn’t been too bad. It was nice to refuse a creme egg from Matt. I guess, I ‘ve been more organised, and the morning routine has been adjusted to allow it to work.

Hey ho. Off to to the gym I go.

Cheers

End of the first working week…

So made it to the end of the week which is nice. The most appealing part has been that we’ve walked each day, and the milage has improved each day. Coffee switch made to Americano vs any milky coffee which is a step in the right direction. Next week sees the return to the sheep.

So this year, there is a motivation and a point. Not content with being huge this year, I’ve got a road trip planned in for later in the year which see’s me off to the USA. As part of this, it’s going to be hot hot hot, and there are also a number of roller coasters etc. As such, it won’t do me any harm to fix it. A few diet changes already filtering in, last huzzah tomorrow with food as part of a birthday and then we are done. Back on plan, to get on track

Wish me luck, going to need it.

 

Reflections…


So I note that my last post was in September, and I’ve not needed to, nor had the time to post. Life just gets in the way sometime. However, as is the norm for this time of year, there is an element of reflection and planning. Now that is not my normal bag, but as I get older….

I’ve never been a fan of new year resolutions, as its easy to be glib, or not commit to actions. As such, no resolutions nothing silly, but at my time of life, and something I’ve said before, changes need to happen.

One of the drivers, is a drive, and a big spend holiday for later in the year. To survive heat and humidity I need to do something, and make a change. There will also be roller coasters a plenty to play with so fit into a dam thing, changes need to come.

It’s also fair to say healthwise, the family has faced some issues this year, and whilst I can plod on, its time to stop plodding.  For the record, nothing bad for me, bar the plantar which isn’t ever going to go, and a dodgy tooth.

 

So then, onwards and next steps. Stop messing about Stephen and commit to the cause, and go do it. There is a number in my head, and thats the loss goal for September.  Time to take the black sheep seriously and pull it all together as it should be. Stop spending at work, and back on the water etc. During this year, I’ve covered an extra 700 miles or so, its got to be the 1000 for next year too. Started well and then drifted off.

It can all only help.

I do find, writing this stuff down all helps to, so I will. Or at least, I say I will

 

Cheers.
