This year I've traded the internet/computer for real life. It's been quite refreshing. I am able to access my email via my iPod touch, so I can regularly check it without the need for the computer. I find that when the computer is switched on (like now) I get caught up reading blogs, and websites, and recipes and other junk that doesn't actually add value to my life. So I just don't switch it on.
I'm taking this year as it comes. I've stopped tracking my progress with things. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, then it obviously wasn't important enough!
I'm jogging. At this stage in intervals of 5mins jogging mixed with intervals of walking. I'm enjoying it. I actually want to do it rather than dread 'exercise time'. I'm eating healthier but without the strictness of a diet plan or food diary or website to track things. I'm listening to my body instead. I've lost 6kgs since the start of the year so it seems to be working.
I've cut myself some slack. We have just started back into soccer season which, combined with swimming lessons, means not getting home until dinnertime 3 nights a week. Instead of the usual fluster about the quality of the meal on the table and whether it is homemade from scratch or not I've purchased and frozen some ready made ravioli and stocked up on tinned spaghetti and baked beans. Quick, easy and filling. I've cooked a bunch of other meals and frozen them ready to defrost, heat and eat. I'm prepared. And I'm ready to serve spaghetti/beans on toast to all!
I'm relaxing. I'm happy. I'm content. But I'm clearly not blogging often, so if you want to know what I'm up to you'd better email! :)
