Deep breath and start again...


I have had a shocking few weeks.

No excuses really, I have just been busy.

I have no idea where I am up to weight wise. But I feel permanently tinged with guilt. So I suspect I need to take a deep breath, move on, and start afresh.

So today is a day of planning. Chucking out the junk that has infiltrated the larder. Stocking up on fruit and veggies.

Making a plan, a realistic plan.

Letting go of the guilt.

Reminding myself that all of the exercise I do is worth sweet nothing if my approach to food is wrong.

I shall be digging out my hypnotherapy and committing to listening to it.

I shall resume my little blog diary accountability.

And take a deep breath and start again with renewed vigour....

And turn my face back to the sun...

  1. I had exactly the same conversation with myself yesterday. We shall draw a deep breath, let go of the guilt and start afresh together.

  2. You go Lucy!! You are amazing and I've no doubt you'll be back on track. Enjoy the sun on your face!

  3. "The past is prologue"...You are not the wonderful person you are today without the things that have happened. It gives you the gumption (have you seen the movie 'The Holiday'?) you need to go forth and conquer...

    Love 'drab2fab' - have started chanting it to myself daily!

  4. We all have those days/weeks, but what counts is having the courage to pull ourselves out of it. You've got loads of that Lucy. xo

  6. You've made yourself accountable for your actions. That is one huge step there!

    I am amazed by how fair you have come on your journey (I am only a new 'follower') I need to take a couple of leafs out of your book!

  8. I have had a shocking few weeks too Lucy. NO gym for almost two months. Wrong food. Taking on too much. Ending up with back pain, headaches and shoulder pain. Stress. Shocking. But all for a purpose ... all because I am striving towards something. A goal that I want to achieve so badly that is putting everything else to the side. It's hard though. I actually blogged about it this morning. Is it possible to have too much drive? Or that the drive is all in the wrong direction? I wish I had drive for the gym and for healthy eating but I just don't at the moment ... sigh. But yes, deep breath and start again, because today is a brand new day.

  9. You and me both. I had a little pep talk with myself this morning! There has been a steady increase in crapola in the pantry... I have been sleeping poorly too. I have not been exercising to get over an injury, but that's no reason to eat more junk!
    So, I have filled a water bottle up, I'm off to get a new knee brace and go for a walk to test our my leg!

    Today is a new day... day 1 again, let's go xxx

    Good luck to you. xx

  12. Oh lawd, I know how horrible that lazy, guilty feeling can be. I had it last night after spending the day just eating and eating and eating, then going to bed with a bloaty, carby tummy.

    You're doing all the right things - fruit, veg, plan plan plan.

    Upwards and onwards.

  13. I think the whole year has been one big blur! Might just take some of your sound advice and do the same. Could certainly do with more deep breaths and a nice fresh approach to the crazy world in which we live x

  14. Lucy this is just the kick I need! My diet was going really well, and about 2 months ago I stopped. No idea why.

    So I'm going to get back on track. Yay!

    Good luck. x

  17. Agree - taking a step back and planning and re-assessing where we're at is important. Great idea.
