New Year’s Resolution. In April

on April 7, 2015

It’s an easter resolution really, I guess. And not truly official yet.

I don’t remember feeling like this with Elvis. I have a burning desire to exercise. Possibly because I can’t. And I feel really ugly and fat. Possibly because I had a baby ten weeks ago and keep eating chocolate to make me feel better about being stuck in a nursing chair (it doesn’t make me frel better).

It’s spring. It’s sunny and I sleep relatively well at night.

I’m going to go on walks with Robin. Power walks. I’m going to stop the eating of chocolate. I’ve got out my mum’s left behind sit up thingies and I’m going to use them.

I don’t want to weigh 12 stone anymore.

    I still eat lots of chocolate to feel better every time my baby freaks out (he’s eight months now). And I also want to lose the pregnancy weight. We go on lots of walks and it makes me feel way better.
    But give your body time – it’s been through so much!

      Oh I love your blog. It’s true, we’re all so hard on ourselves. I guess that’s what mums do in general though – compare. We’ve had bad weather so I haven’t been as active but Robin naps in her pram so I don’t feel physically trapped which was not helping! Thank you 🙂
