Working It Out in 2014

I normally don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I feel like if you have things you want to sort out in your lives, just do it. But this year, I have one. Losing. Weight. I started on a diet and exercise regime at the end of July 2013, but on the 1st August I fell down the stairs and broke my toe. It has taken months for that damn toe to feel 75% better. Then on the 2nd December 2013, I had a laparoscopy. Cue more recuperation. Meaning cue more eating and less activity and gaining more weight.

But I’m finally feeling better, and coincidentally it is the 1st of January 2014. So I have booked a weekly Pilates equipment class beginning the Sunday after next. And I’m thinking about booking another Pilates course so that I will be attending twice a week.

Tomorrow I will be doing a very healthy food shop. And I will be reducing my carbs, increasing the vegetables and cutting out the sugar beginning this Saturday. I find that carbs aggravate my endometriosis. But I could eat toast, pasta and rice all day. I have decided that I will only have carbs once a day. And I eat chocolate or biscuits everyday, which is not necessary for my well-being. So those are going.

My unhealthy diet and the almost non-existent exercise are adding to my lack of sleep. I go to bed at around 12.30am most nights, which isn’t great considering I am up at 7am most mornings. If I was eating healthier, then I wouldn’t be so buzzed on sugar at night and could get to bed at a reasonable time.

I have two stone of baby weight and half a stone of ‘extra’ weight that need to be eradicated. I will keep you up to date. It’s more than a resolution. I am really ready for this. A new year, and an old me.
