First of all, sorry I have not been around much, I still am working 10-12 hour days and am literally pooped at the moment. I have decided as of next week I'll only put in 2-3 days a week with these hours as 1) I cannot keep this pace up everyday 2) I'm not getting much kudos for the extra hours, it is sort of expected and one thing I hate is being taken advantage of.

Being so busy, I have also used this as an excuse to fall of the diet wagon - BIG TIME.

I use the word excuse as I really could have eaten much better than I have since stopping the low carb regime. I liken myself to a Great White Shark eating anything and everything in sight. It is really is pathetic, but I must take full responsibility for my actions as no one forced me to do it. I have no idea what the scales are saying, I'm to chicken to find out but I would guesstimate I have gained around 6kg (13lbs). EGAD!!!

Physically I feel like shit, my whole body is achy and I get headaches everyday and because I'm not drinking my water, I am retaining fluid. I have taken the weekend to sort myself out. I'm going back to my 1500 calories a day thingy. It's tried and true, all I need to do is plan.

Like we all know we all do better when we plan. Not planning for me is setting myself up to fail before I even start. So I am in the process of devising 4 weeks of eating based on the 1500 cal and will start Wednesday. I'm also going to try blogging more to help get me back in the swing of things. So that's it, I'll try and get round to all your blogs over the next couple of days.

Today I am going to list some items on Ebay, I have never done it before and thought I'd give it a go. Until Wednesday, if you hear a huge screech it will only be me weighing myself!! lol

You are right about the planning. All about finding what works for you and going with it! You can do it! Good luck for your coming weeks. Maybe stay away from the scales until you've had a good weekend behind you!

You and me both mate... I think I am finally getting myself back on track.. and I have not stood on the scales for a while.... otherwise you would have heard me screech too!!! I too am weighing in on Wednesday... secretly going to a new meeting to get myself accountable again. WW that is.

I totally got off track last week, you can do it.

Well at least you are taking the right attitude and getting back on the diet wagon.
It may not quite be as bad as you anticipate but the truth is you must get on the scales then do something about it.
And thats good coming from me cos I reckon I've put on a few pounds recently so I'd better also take my own advice.

It's hard to stay on track when one element of your life is suddenly taking over and sucking out your life energy.

I have been working way too much as well - but now we have the beginning of a new month - lets make it happen!

Sorry to hear about the shark attack. I am sliding at the moment too and am mad at myself. Just because I'm stressed doesn't mean I need to quit taking care of myself.
Cutting back on your work schedule sounds good and hope your week goes well.

Sorry to hear you are having a hard time of it. I do think though that you are right about having a plan. It helps you get through one day at a time.

Sorry you have slipped. It happens. Just get back on the horse!!
