Well this week has been hard. As I posted last week I was trying to stop eating cakes, sweets, biscuits and drinking alcohol. Well, I have failed on all of those! I have been struggling with my depression, I feel like I am going backwards at times, however, I am keeping on keeping on, and am determined to succeed.
Today is my weigh in day. I am not expecting a loss. If I am lucky I may have stayed the same…. I don’t deserve to. I stepped on the scale to discover I have gained.
I used to swim competitively. Ha! When I think what I was capable of when I was 10 years old, how hard I trained. equality of my swimming strokes. Not any more. I am seriously considering a couple of lessons! I cannot remember how to breathe and swim at the same time! I love wearing my prescription swimming goggles. I knew you could get them, but always thought they would be really expensive. When I had an eye test recently I enquired about them (I saw a poster which reminded me) and was amazed that the most it would be £25. Needless to say, I bought a pair! I can see the end of the pool now! If I am feeling really ambitous I will go to Aqua aerobics this evening.
I am also going swimming tomorrow morning. My aim is to swim 20 lengths. I will let you know how I get on!
Today I am going to look forward with enthusiasm, and I am hopeful that this optimistic (very slightly) frame of mind will lead to an improvement in my weight loss and my depression. I must do more for me, and with that I am going to sign off as I have lots to do today!
I am meeting a footballing friend for coffee later to talk cameras. Plus I am recycling a load of craft materials and dropping off Easter Eggs to a family friend. Then I am off to catch up with my ex-boss in the afternoon. A very busy day. I just have to be careful not to eat rubbish while I am out!
