So another month nearly gone. As ever it feels as though the year is speeding along with increasing rapidity. For once though, I’m pleased to say I feel as though I’m making progress. Debt repayments are going to plan, and I even managed to sneak in another £90 payment over and above my planned amount. As of today I’ve managed 31 days without sugar, and in the last couple of weeks I’ve lost 6lbs, so the low carb high fat (LCHF) is working. Miraculously I also managed a week of PMT without a) even noticing, other than being a lot hungrier than expected, and b) zero sugar and low carb intake. Something must be working and long may it continue.
I’ve not attempted running yet, and as a result I’ve changed my plans (again) and found a lovely Pirate pal to take over my place in the Outlaw triathlon relay team. It’s disappointing, but it’s the right move. I’ll get back to running soon, and do some shorter events, but happily I’ve been back to the gym the past three weeks and I’ve re-started a training programme to build my strength back up. I really love it, and it’s helping my back already, so it was the right move to make. Not maintaining the gym work was what screwed me in the first place, and honestly it’s my favourite activity/sport so I really should have just focused on it all along.
March is just more of the same: keep plugging away at the debt, save money to cover the next Lanza trip, continue eating and training as I have been and that should help with the next 6 weeks of studying that are looming. I’ve slacked off the last couple of weeks a bit – mentally I just needed to dial it back a bit, I felt a bit knackered – but it’s full steam ahead from this week until Easter.
Busy busy but that’s the way I like it, especially when I’m finally ‘doing’ instead of just ‘talking about doing.’
