Lax. I have been lax. I have been lax in a lot of ways since I had a change of employment status rather...involuntarily. I have been lax in going to the gym. I have been lax in household duties and podcast writing and dog walking.
I'm not wallowing in self-pity or anything, but I have definitely taken a liking to the sweeter sweets that exist in my refrigerator. I have been known the past few weeks to open a tub of peanut butter cookie dough, grab a spoon, and eat it. Not the whole thing, mind you, but just enough to be considered my caloric intake for the week.
I've not actually gained much weight in my sloth. About 5-6 pounds, which is probably due to the whole 'less income equals less pizza eating' thing. The onset of gloomy weather the past week or so hasn't helped my cause, either.
And, the funny thing is that every night before I go to bed, I put my hand on my slowly loosening stomach and think, 'Gosh, I really should have gone to the gym/not eaten that/blah blah blah.' And I'm not saying today that I am rededicating myself to the causes of all things healthy and tight-skinned, but I am saying I am taking notice.
What do YOU do to get motivated? With my differing retail schedule and lethargy, it's been hard to maintain some sense of habit.
Love and Lyte,
