Long hiatus but worth it

19 Jul

I was gone for a while yes.  In that time my work hours lightened up a lot and I got to go on a vacation.  I am on a tight budget but food options have stayed healthy and at home.

I’m hoping now that things are calming down I can wipe my credit card charges back to zero and start from scratch.

My size 12 jeans that I wear for my part-time work are just falling off of me.  My crotch of the pants just hangs out between my legs and I have a bit of plumbers crack.  I was starting to get bummed that I look like a bum so I went to the goodwill to pick up some jeans.  I got another pair of size 6 jeans because they weirdly fit except that they don’t close.  A size 12 pair and a pair of size 10 jeans which both actually fit.  They are a little tight and the 12s show that my gut is back 😦

So its time to get serious again.  I also have decided to spend less hours on the internet which has been nice.  I normally sit my butt on the couch for hours and stare at the screen.  I spent some time taming my email, and so that has helped a lot.

I have been taking out books from the library about specific topics but that has also helped.  Yesterday at the goodwill I saw all these books I’ve wanted to read and decided I was going to focus more on reading and language learning aside from this blog of course 🙂

There is still a month and a half til the wedding I’m planning to attend as a guest.    I am confident I can tame the belly by then and be size 10 pants exclusively.  I have my Ipod all cued up will songs but left it in hubbys car so I will have to figure something else out.  I’m happy that I haven’t back slid despite not making it to the gym often.

But with all this extra energy, frustration and aggrevation I have to put the energy somewhere so it looks like gym it is.
