A cry for help

Ladies, you know how once you are on the ball it's easy to stay on it? You're fit, you're healthy and you are feeeeeeeeling good! And then one day, you feel a little lazy. Or maybe you are even sick? You decided not to go for your walk/jog/run and skip the gym/pilates/exercise DVD you usually enjoy doing. Now if you're being lazy, maybe it's because you're on holiday and because you're on holiday there are a lot of high calorie treats laying around... Or if you're sick, someone brings you treats!

Hard to resist.

So you start eating. And eating. And eating... And then you get better/not-so-lazy!! So you can get back on the ball! back into routine!

If only it was that easy.

I'm not a chocoholic, I don't particularly have a sweet tooth and I'm not a serious junkie or snacker. I definitely don't deny myself those things but generally I don't crave them. Until I start... While on holiday there were a lot of baked goods, expensive chocolates, decadent wines and rich foods. I ate them all. And I enjoyed every moment of it. Using the "I'm on holiday excuse" but now... Now I can't seem to stop. I've gained just under 6lb's in 4 weeks. I know it's not a LOT and I still seem to fit comfortably into all my clothes, but when I sit down I can see that spread in my thighs and when I look at my ass I can see how it's "filled out".

I feel a little stuck now and a little afraid. I've been fat (ohthankyou pregnancy) and I got my body back so when I put on weight I feel this drop in my chest of "is this it? is this when I'll loose control again?".

Must be better this month! Must!

I wish I had the time of day to go to the gym or some aerobic classes. I LOVE Aerobic classes. So much fun. But when am I suppose to make time to do that? If I'm not at work, I'm looking after son, and once Son goes to bed then I'm looking after husband by preparing dinner... You all know how it goes.

Yes, I've totally been there. Actually am still a bit there. All i can say is its time to get hard on yourself and do it NOW, the last thing you want to do is let it get out of hand. The longer you wait, the bigger the rut you are going to get into (take it from someone who knows!)

Ugh don't remind me! I am pregnant, I know, but I need to get a hold on this sweet tooth now or even the breastfeeding won't save me from the chub! Good luck!
