Dieting in the Winter

Morning all, I'm a bit later than usual today as things are really busy here, so many job applications and info flying here there and everywhere and even the odd power cut.

Well I haven't lost anything this week, which I'm a bit disappointed with but then again haven't put on anything either.  You'll see from my exercise list that mostly I was walking this week, even though I had hoped to get in some more calorie burning aerobics.

I have to admit the weather is putting a serious dampener on my mood, which is not good.  In the spring and summer the world is full of lovely sunny possibilities but in autumn it's just dull and drab and mostly that's how I feel.  Most things feel like just too much effort.  Not good when applying for jobs or motivating yourself to get some exercise.

I've been chatting with my mum about dieting and exercise over the winter and how you keep up the momentum, and sadly we didn't really come to any conclusions.  I will say clearly I'm not giving up, there is no giving up, after all I'm not really on a diet as such, this is a change of lifestyle.  I would however like to keep losing weight and that seems hard to achieve at the moment.

On a plus note I did get a dress for my Christmas night out.  So it's an animal print maxi dress.  Not the sort of thing I would usually buy, I'm more a block colour kind of person but it looked good on and I felt thinner and taller wearing it so thumbs up.  If I lose any weight then the dress will only look better...yipee

That's me today, have a good week all.
