This week I took a time-out from ... well, everything really. I went to uni, but skipped my most depressing lecture, didn't exercise once and spent most of my time vegetating on the couch watching TV, drinking tea and eating. Basically, I took this past week to recharge my batteries and, thank God, it worked because I'm raring to go now as a result.

That and the fact that today is weigh-in day and I discovered that I've gained FOUR WHOLE POUNDS in just one week! And it's not even girly-time yet. *wail*

Mind you, I did have pasta twice this week. And a pizza. And a couple of croissants. Yeah, ok, so I know why I've put on the weight and yes, I know it's not really a big deal - I mean 4 pounds? People on The Biggest Loser lose 100s! So I know it's not that bad, it's just that this is the first time since last September that I've actually gained and it has basically scared the crap out of me.

But it's ok, because I have now recharged my batteries and, although I'm not entirely sure I've got my mojo back, I do feel able to take on my life again. I can do this. My only hurdle now is sorting out my sleeping pattern because doing nothing and eating loads totally wrecks my sleeping habits. As do mosquitos. *grrr*


  1. Good for you for pressing pause on life for a week. We need to do that from time to time. I was definitely a bit of a hermit this past month. I didn't see many people and sort of hid in my condo. It was very good for me. I needed that time to re-charge my battery after the awful experience i had at my former employer...

    Don't stress about the 4 lbs. Those weight gains happen from time to time and I am sure they'll go away shortly!

  2. You're mojo will be back before you know it!

  3. It's soo nice to just relax and get away from everything every once in awhile ;) Glad you were able to do it!

    Ugh, I don't even want to talk about weight! Haha, I've been gaining consistently since Eric moved back in with me and I need to do something about it asap!! Lol
