Well, I’ve started a diet again! I’m going back to a diet rather than just healthy eating, as I need to reeducate my body on what a normal portion size is. And I need to rediscover just how great natural food tastes. Fruit, nuts and vegetables all have their tastiness reduced by eating refined sugar and fats and I’d like to get back to a world where fruit tasted like the most AWESOME thing in the world! Plus I’m booked to go to Center Parks in a few weeks and have paid for lots of physical activities. I need to get back my fitness in order to enjoy it! (and fit into my clothes properly again..).
I’m hoping that eating better will improve my mood, which has been quite low recently. I worry a lot about my lack of motivation in work. I have been trying to write a training course for over a month now and it still isn’t written. I just don’t seem to be as productive as I could be. Maybe I just need some time off.
My plan is to cycle the long way to work as often as I can in the next few weeks, plus I’m hoping to start my running training very soon. Someone told me about a really good podcast to help non-runners get to running 5k. It’s called ‘Couch to 5k’. So I’ll be trying that as soon as I can figure out how to fit it into my week..
In other news, Mrs Pillows and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary this week. It seems like we have been together SO much longer (in a good way). I can’t really remember a time without the Mrs! I repinkified my hair last week too. It needs doing again already, but I still haven’t been able to find any permanent pink hair dye.
Apart from that, life goes on as usual. There’s only a few more weeks of photography class left, so I’m looking around for new projects and inspiration. I’ve already found a couple of things, so hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with taking photos. I’m hoping that practice makes me a better photographer!
