Since I finished up the 20 Day No Cheat Challenge, I’ve not really been keeping track of my calories. It hasn’t been too bad though. I’m nowhere near as hungry as I used to be. In fact, I have to remember to eat regularly. I’ve since lost another kilo and a half without really trying to count calories, bringing me down to 61.4kg. I started on 68.1kg, so that’s not too bad. As long as I remember to eat, and eat enough.
I think it’s probably a good thing to not take gym-going as seriously as I did, and I’ve kind of moved my focus from fitness onto a creative side project. I still try and get out and go to the gym, but I’m not aggressively counting every gram of food, and I’m not pushing myself to my limits every time. Basically, I’m trying to enjoy myself when I work out. I still prefer running at the moment, but cold and rainy days are a bit of a deterrent.
Things are really looking up. Once I got started on my side project, things really started to turn around. I made another friend, this time a walking friend, which is really nice! We are both in similar situations and need a bit of time out to socialise and get out of the house, basically. So that’s nice.
And I guess no matter what happens on the job front, I have my side project, which I am extremely excited about. It’s in the works, I’ve got a website and a plan, and at the moment I am just waiting to hear back from potential suppliers before sorting out the finishing touches and launching for real. I think this is what I needed, a project to put my energy into, with the potential to make some pocket money. Best of all, the idea came to me when I was walking around the dog park… And every time I go, the ideas keep coming! I won’t say any more until it’s actually launched. But I want to. Haha.
