Fallen of the wagon

Fallen of the wagon

Isn’t that what they call it? I’ve fallen of so many times already I’ve must of hit my head really hard, cause I seem to forget all the bad feelings and self pity that comes with it.

First of all, I have been doing really good for some months now. Lost weight and feeling good about myself. So… guess that’s a win-win!

Last week was my birthday, and we celebrated it the weekend before with friends and a bbq on Saturday. And on Sunday we had some more people coming over for some pie and coffee. Now having a bbq and some pie doesn’t make you fall of the wagon, but it’s all the little things that accompanies it like wine, beer, crisps, nuts, cheese bites, etc… and the fact that we didn’t touch those things for months made us look like a addict getting back to his drug.

Now also the fact that we bought way to much food for the 2 days was a bad sign. Not only that, but people actually gave me like a birthday box with wine, crisps, nuts and such as a gift. Which was really nice of them, but together with the leftover food we knew we were gonna problems later on.

So the last 2 weeks we have been eating junk food on a regular base. We have had our normal dinners and lunches, so we are back on that. But once we are in the sofa, we bring out the junk food – and that’s because we have it. So we are trying now to get rid of it as soon as possible, so that we can get back on track.

And yes, we could also throw all the bad food out. But sorry, I can’t make that decision. And yes, I know that I sabotage myself because I can’t either throw it out or give it to others. I know that… and it makes it also obvious that I still have a long way to go.

The fact that I was worried in advance about the birthday weekend said it all. I will have to get over the guilty feelings and the regret.

But we are being positive! And I know that I can get back on track! And I will get back!

Week #1

Week #1

We are back.
Needed time to get some things in perspective, and found out what I want in life and how to get there.

Since this week we have started with portion control, no sweets, no chocolate, no crisps, no alcohol…

Honestly, some days were more difficult than others. The biggest problem for me was in the evening sitting on the sofa watching tv and no nuts, crisps, chocolate were allowed.

We are such habit creatures, and itโ€™s difficult to get into a new way of life. But we will get there. ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekend out

Weekend out

Had a lovely weekend with the hubby.

We went to France to meet up with some friends I hadn’t seen in a long time, and they have never met Nathan yet either – so it was kind of “weird” at the start but a good “weird”.

We met in Lille and went for a walk trough town, checking out the stores and such. It was really nice, but it was raining and felt cold, which was a shame.

When we came home we we’re both exhausted. Not that we walked so much, just the weather and the travelling took a lot of energy.

We went for the easy solution and got some takeaway, we crashed in the sofa and didn’t come out anymore till it was time for bed.

Sunday was a relaxing day. No rush, no tasks, just enjoying the last day of the weekend. Did some gaming together and watched a movie.

Ps: picture was not taken by me… completely forgot to take pictures that day.
