what I wore

what I wore – week 31

Every week is passing faster than the next.  My husband’s surgery went well on Friday, and he is now kidney stone (and stent) free.  He even managed to go back to work today!  So maybe our household is finally returning to a semblance of normality.

what I wore - week 31
What I wear each day is a little challenging at the moment, because I have clearly pinpointed that I use food and wine as a coping mechanism for stress. I’ve added another couple of kilos to the few that I put on while we were in Bali in early June. My winter clothes are usually more roomy than my summer ones, and tend to be made of stretchier and more forgiving fabrics, so although my clothes are still fitting they are not looking as good or feeling quite as comfortable. And there is no way that my summer clothes are going to fit me unless I do something a little drastic over the next few months. I’ve been lucky enough to have been selected to attend a work conference at Surfer’s Paradise at the end of October, so am using that as a goal to motivate me a little – and the fact that I’ve now tipped over from “healthy range” to “overweight” on the scales.  My focus with weight management is about my health, not my looks (although they are a nice side-effect) – and I’m currently not as healthy as I could be and have been before.  At least I know that I’ve lost weight and got fit before, and I can do it again.  Just finding the head space.

  1. I know what you mean. I have been slowly gaining weight due to the stress of our earthquakes and the resulting wine consumption. I would like to drop 6kg which seems a huge amount to put me at the lower end of my healthy weight range instead of the top end. I have started running again and am using Sherry from Pattern Scissors Cloth and now http://runtothemountains.blogspot.co.nz/ as my inspiration. We will see how it goes. Maybe we could motivate each other!

  2. It’s swings and roundabouts I think Lara, I find this time of year so uninspiring – I was scheduled to go for a run but as I write this it is bucketing down and 10 degrees outside – and there are only so many times I can run on a treadmill…
    You have had a busy and stressful time – you will find your rhythm soon I bet.
    Glad all is well with the husband!

  3. It’s good to hear that hubby is on the mend and the surgery was successful. Good luck with the weight loss. I think you are very sensible to think of your health long before your looks when it comes to loosing the weight. With all the stress you have been under I think you have done very well to only put on a couple of kilos.
