I'm Back!

Eek... It's been over a month since my last post. To be honest, I wasn't really doing much, weight loss wise, and really had nothing to write about. The good news is, I haven't completely fallen off the wagon, but the bad news is I haven't completely stayed on. I've mostly hovered around the same weight, with a 2 kg gain over the past 2 weeks. Nothing too major, for which I am thankful.

My eating habits over the past month have been very lax. While I've tried to keep good food habits in my mind, I haven't been very strict about what food and how much of it I am eating. In fact, it's starting to get to a point where my eating habits are getting worse the longer I'm not keeping myself in check.

Exercise has been minimal, but actually better than when I last posted. I bought some new workout a few weeks ago gear (always a good motivator), and have been trying to get outside to walk as often as I can. I usually go 3 or so times a week (up until this last week, when it has rained every single day). I'm really enjoying the walks, and am managing to stay motivated even though I have to get up at 6am to do them.

I am wanting to get back to concentrating on losing weight, and have been struggling in my attempts to find the discipline to do it over the past month. I'm finally getting back some of my resolve though, so I think this is the perfect time to get back to blogging and the added motivation and reflection that it gives me. I'm also heading to Melbourne at the end of the month, which should help to keep me motivated.

In other news, this month I'll be joining in on Fat Mum Slim's July Photo A Day Challenge. Lets see how far I get. You can follow along by following me on instagram (link to the right) or check out the action using the hashtag #FMSphotoaday. If you're joining in, be sure to let me know so I can follow you.
