For those of you with ultra long memories (or those who
give a rats ass actually care what I am up to – haha!) I promised a Mid-March Update.
This was initially an update on My Simple Exercise and Eating Plan to shift the Mum Tum.
Well guess what? I have failed. I have a lovely long list of all the reasons I did not succeed in reducing my waistline, but all it is a great big dose of ‘Excusitus’! So no bikini snaps of moi!
I think the lack of motivation actually stemmed from a visit to a Osteopath who commented that after having two kids I stand a cat’s in hell chance of a flat stomach ever again (okay so I am paraphrasing) – but the prognosis wasn’t great. Apparently my abdominal muscles are ‘dragging’ – what does that mean? – it sounds sinister!
So no heavier than I was and no lighter – here I am Mum of Two with a bit of a Tum. Still exactly the same – average Jo as always!
There is some good news, I have started running again, not as much as I should but it’s a start and as the nights get lighter in the UK it’s probable I will be back to three runs a week, approx 15-20 miles. That’s enough – as always I’m a moderate gal, no need to get extreme!
Where I have failed spectacularly is with my sentimental hoarding. All the clutter is out of the dining room table – not a table we really use at the moment (long story – won’t go there) so it’s not a dining disaster.
I cannot get my head around it, I can’t. I have fantastic intentions, then as I start going through it, I start reading and inspecting everything and getting lost in the past and get nowhere.
Seriously it is getting me down. I have no idea why I cannot conquer it.
I have had a kind offer from a reader who mentioned she may be able to help, and I am speaking with Naomi Saunders (Professional organiser and the author of the book that started me on my journey). My priority from April will be the sentimental hoard – three months late.
Perhaps I should chuck the lot? Could someone contact the Hubby, grab a key and dispose of it all whilst I am out one day please?
This is a long post isn’t it? Anyway on we go…
Couple of things
Changes to blogging – I am setting up a No Waste Tastes Great Blog as I have an awful lot of posts related to food, meal planning, food waste etc… that if I incorporated here would mean I was blogging daily and sometimes twice daily – that’s just ridiculous and you would soon get fed up… so I am going to isolate the majority of my food writing on the new blog, with links (where relevant) from this one for those who are interested.
Facebook – I am relenting and setting up a Facebook page. I had stuck just to Twitter, but Facebook has so much potential for me to do lots of little updates on fun stuff and anecdotal things that I couldn’t really post here. Now I have my new Blackberry I think I’d enjoy it as I could do updates when out and about, as I very often have inspiration as I am moving through life and meeting people!
Finally – Yes breath everyone! (you can tell I haven’t posted in 6 days – it’s like I have caught up with a close friend I haven’t seen for a while and need to get it all off my chest)
HAPPY ST PATRICK’S DAY!
I love the name Patrick (Tanja please pass that on…) it was second choice for my Son Daniel when he was born.
On that note I’ll love ya and leave ya! Lot’s to do – aka packing – I hate packing so much, but this time I am going minimal!
