Time to get serious again.
I haven’t been doing too badly but it’s time to get back on track. I’ve been teetering between 170 and 175 pounds basically since I moved back to New Zealand. Sure, it’s okay to maintain for a while and just enjoy life and it was good to get my life back on track and enjoy this new country for a while but I think it’s time to move forward now.
I will be moving at the end of this month and starting a brand new job – the job I’ve always wanted – a teaching job. I feel like I’m a bit stuck in limbo until that happens but it’s no excuse to fly off the handle and eat everything in sight. I’ve decided that even though things might be a little bit hectic right now, I can at least do a few things to start transitioning back into the swing of things.
1. Drink at least 9 glasses of water a day.
2. Not so much junk. Eat healthier food and snacks because they’re still awesome.
3. Log everything. Every day. No matter what.
I figure if I can start getting the hang of these three things, life will be a lot easier. They aren’t huge goals that I will fail easily and get discouraged about during this super stressful time of moving and starting a new job – they’re just things to start getting me back on track while I get settled in. Once I get settled, I am going to add exercise (I have plans to buy myself a bicycle and/or join a gym – and my husband wants to as well) and I’m going to decrease my daily calorie goal a bit since my job won’t be so strenuous and I’ll be eating my exercise calories again.
Then those last 20 pounds will be history!
