I’ve put on five kilos.

My summer wardrobe feels more snug than it did six months ago.

It’s mostly thanks to emotional eating, with the wedding and mum’s health taking a nosedive since May.

So I jumped on the scales yesterday and I came in at 90.5kg.

On Valentine’s Day, I was 85.5kg.

This isn’t right.

So tonight I whipped out the workout gear, jumped on my creaky ol’ cross-trainer and worked my little (over-worked and struggling) heart out.

And I took a photo. An unflattering one.

I have to work on my mental health in the process to pinpoint causes and breaking old habits.  I have to work on my motivation, determination and everything else I need to whip my own arse into gear.

Cause right now, I have to be honest with you. I’m not feeling it. I have to fake it til I become it.

Join my  cheer squad? Please? Cause as cute as Elvis and Bear are at playing Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi to my Barack Obama, they aren’t exactly going to support me when I’m contemplating that next can of Coke…

  2. Go Rah! You can do it.

    And if you can’t, I’ve got some children you can borrow. They’ll wear you out physically, and the pounds will just drop off.

  3. Definitely joining your cheer squad cause I’m in the same place. One month of not exercising and enjoying the wonderful German food and re-starting my Coke addiction have taken their toll. Started couch to 5K this morning. Just got to keep up the motivation.

    We can do it!!

  4. Given all the adversities you’ve had and conquered this year, shedding a few kilos is super doable.

    I’m on the Rah Cheer Squad for sure!

  8. Add me to both lists! I managed to find quite a few kg this year too. It’s so much easier to find them than anything else I seem to lose. Sigh. I’m still working out superhard at the gym and want to get back to the couch to 5k thing. Hey Leigh- perhaps we need another bloggest loser?
