Good Lord I don't know where the evening went yesterday, but it skidded by me at a thousand miles an hour and I never got around to posting!
So I went back to my class last night after my week of MIA. It took me until Thursday to get back into the swing of things and get working on some damage control after my Old School Boozy Weekend. And thank God I did, because I stayed the same this week! Yay. I really knew that if I had gone to class last Monday after my hectic weekend and gained, it would have thrown me right off. Throughout the earlier part of the week I was full sure that I was starting to loose all focus, but a swift kick up the jacksie got me moving again.
I have posted the above because sometimes I need to remind myself to be happy, and also, when I am happy, remind myself to tell my face, because it doesn't always receive the message! Yesterday was spent basically preparing my family for me to leave them for three days, return for two days and leave them for a further three days. Travelling back and forward to London is starting to take its toll on my patience. I have gone from a stay at home Mama, to a part time working Mama to a Mama that seems to leave the country every two weeks, and I'm not loving it. Sure, the uninterrupted sleeps are amazing. And it is nice to be able to sit and eat a meal without fear of it being thrown all over me (well, fear of someone else throwing it all over me, I have a tendency to be a bit of a sloppy eater). And there is a lot to be said for the comfort of going to the loo without "what's that" being shouted at my lady garden. The thing is, motherhood wasn't unexpectedly gifted to me. It was a gift I went out looking for. It is a gift that I really really wanted, so fecking off for three days a week a couple of times a month is not giving me a chance to want to be away from that gift, ya know what I'm saying? The novelty of no Dolly has well and truly worn off. All of these thoughts made me very sad yesterday. I actually felt like crying. I went to bed with a cup of tea and had a little pity party for myself.
I got up this morning bright as a button though, full of positivity and ready for the week ahead and the challenges it will present. I am prepared and have a plan in place for what's going to happen next week and I have my moving goals and weightloss goals set. I am aiming for 2lb next week so I have got to get a wriggle on!
Here's to a good week to everyone! Enjoy
