I am still alive! This must be the longest I have gone without blogging in 3 1/2 years. I am suffering from a severe lack of internet access. I have well over 1000 unread blog posts in my google reader, but the fleeting moments I get internet access need to be spent looking for a job and a house… not that blog reading isn’t important too!
So, I still don’t have a house or a job and I haven’t had any source of income since March, so to say that things are tight is an understatement. I have applied for some promising looking jobs and have lots more to apply for, but it just takes time. Of course, no one wants to rent you a house when you don’t have a job, so that isn’t going too well either. In the meantime I have been staying with various friends and family across the country and people have been incredibly generous. Just a couple of days ago I was having a little whinge to my brother’s girlfriend on email that I desperately need a pedicure and that it’ll be the first thing I do when I get a job, then an hour later her and my brother call me from Canada and they have booked me in for an hour spa pedicure at a lovely day spa, which I enjoyed very much yesterday. Just having pretty pink toes makes my whole day brighter!
My weight seems to be staying stable (not that I have any scales), but I feel like I still weigh about 92 kilos. It really isn’t good enough that I have let my weight stay stagnant and I need to get moving with losing some more weight. I have let excuses get in the way and that needs to stop. I have been back from holidays for a month now and I could have lost 5 kilos in that time. So a few days ago I signed up at the local Fernwood gym for a 14 day membership for only $14, so that should keep me in-line for the next two weeks and give me something to do with my time.
My band is feeling a little tight right now and if I could get down to
on a weekday to see my doctor I would get a little fill taken out. I would probably be OK if I were preparing my own meals, but because I am eating out or with other people so often, a lot of the food I have to choose from isn’t very band friendly and it is making things a bit difficult. Unfortunately I have been reverting to ‘slider’ foods to help me out in these situations, which often tend to be chocolate! I have a lot of fun social events in the last few months of this year and I would really like to drop some more weight before they come up so that I can buy some pretty dresses and feel good about myself, so I can’t afford to continue to waste time if I want to reach my goals by then.
