My secret shame

For the past six months I have been paying for a gym membership that I haven’t used. In that time I’ve gained 15 pounds. The weight gain isn’t so secret but the gym membership is. I am finally fed up though. I was determined to go to the gym yesterday after school. All the way home I thought about the exercises I’d do. I got home and worked on my paper for comp 101 and ate Oreos. So, basically, the exact opposite of working out. So today I have packed a gym bag to leave in the car while I’m at school so I don’t have to come home and be tempted by other things.

I’m still trying to get my eating in order. I’ve not been planning meals and that’s been killing any diet I had. It has also been killing my food budget. Ithink I’ll go to the gym this afternoon and come home and cook. That way I’ll have food for the week as well as a start on my fitness. My husband and I have solved the food issue –  I’m trying for vegan while he’s still eating meat – by agreeing that I’ll cook my vegan meal and he’ll cook his meat and have some of my meal as a side dish.

It’s looking more and more like I’ll be able to do this.

In the meantime, my winter garden isn’t doing too well. I have a random zucchini plant growing though. Those things are hardy as all get out! Everything else is taking its time. That’s ok though, it was mostly greens anyway and, if it comes to that, they are cheap. I haven’t been tending it that well honestly.  Yet another secret shame. 

Things are going well though and I should have myself sorted soon.  Are you all struggling with anything?

    To get into exercise, I decided I’d go after work every day. I took up running, so I just go home, drop off my bag, get changed and do some stretching, and I’m off again without a chance to sit down and get too comfy. Best of luck with the gym and getting your food planning sorted 🙂
