January Progress

Lets not get too excited here but I’m actually making an effort not to stuff my face all day every day.  This can only be good, can’t it?

Part of me wants to sign up to some sort of weight loss plan.  Weight Watchers, the 5:2 Fasting diet or some other thing.  But I just can’t settle on anything.  And I don’t want to pay for anything either.  Which means that I’m going to wing it on my own.  For a while at least.  Until I change my mind – again.

I’m using My Fitness Pal (I’m womanoflesssubstance there if you want to friend me) to log my food at the minute but I’m not calculating the calories or fat content etc. in advance.  And I’m using The Walk app to encourage me to move a bit more in a casual, everyday way.  Any day now I’m going to start running again.  I’ve found a new map and I’m going to try to run the length of every street in this town!  That might take a while.

The Annual January Cliché

Goodness, is that the time.

Now, I know you will all (yes, I am aware I am talking to my own multiple personalities) be surprised to hear this but since I stopped blogging, stopped keeping track of my diet and stopped making any effort what so ever I have put on weight.  I know, I know, it is so very shocking.

And in keeping with the shock and awe of this post I am going to follow up with random clichés regarding January, a new year, a new start.  Yada, yada, yada.

I need to lose some weight.  I have put some on since the last time I seriously tried to get rid of it.  Not all of it has come back which is cheery but too much.

I need to do some exercise.  The wee ones are getting bigger, stronger, faster and I would like to be able to keep up with them.  At least now while they are still much smaller than I am.

So, here goes.  Again, again, again, again, again.
