Going AWOL again

I admit it, I’ve been slack lately, and that is in all areas of my life.

My exercising has been very slack, my eating has been – well, not the best, my blogging has been almost non-existent and my quilting has also suffered. I’m not sure really what’s been going on with me, but ever since I went to Adelaide and had my appointment with the specialist, that black hole has just been sitting there in the background wanting to swallow me up. I’ve found it so hard to get excited about anything, or to really care about anything.

I really want to get back into my healthy eating and exercising and get back on the weight loss track, but I’m really struggling and I don’t know how to get my mojo back. I’m trying though, I really am.

Mick and I went fishing yesterday and I counted that as my Super Sunday Session (SSS), and wore my HRM the whole time. Two hours, fifty six minutes and thirty three seconds of surf fishing later, I had managed to burn myself a nice hefty 1587 calories. Pretty proud of that. Not so proud of the fact that all I caught was one wee little mullet (which I had for dinner tonight, quite yummy he was…) and Mick only caught one little salmon. Depressing, I love catching the big fish, the ones that give me a challenge.

1,587 calories gone! Yeah baby!

Tonight I had another swimming lesson and I learnt how to do the butterfly, and really, it’s probably the funniest thing you would ever see watching me do that, so even if I myself am not laughing very much at the moment, I could at least make someone else laugh! But having gone fishing and having my lesson has made me realise, that I can’t wait for my mojo to come back to me, I have to go out there, find it and drag it out from under the rock that it’s gone and crawled under.

So on that note I’m going to leave you with a couple of pictures from yesterday, the first day I’ve been really happy in quite a while. I will get back to my happy place, I really will! Starting right now.

My catch from a great day fishing. (On a side note, I gotta say I'm actually liking this photo, because I can really see that I've lost weight. Finally, I can see it.)
