What am I up to...

I realize it’s been too long since I logged on my blog and it’s even longer since I took time to visit other blogs. Remember a couple of months ago I wrote that my relationship with food would totally change? That was like beginning of the year…Nothing really happened till the end of May when I actually started to change my eating habits. I’ve been cutting down on carbs and increasing the exercise. Every day the weather is nice I try to get my running gear on and go for a run for about 30-40 minutes. I was lucky that so far I manage to run a minimum of 2 times a week and in a good week it’s 4 times.

I’m happy to say that now I can run the whole way without needing to stop and catch my breath. I’m also very happy to lose 4 kilos making my weight a total of 60 kilos. Not bad for 2-3 months of exercising and cutting down on carbs. But it hasn’t been easy and I didn’t want to tempt myself by looking at all the good stuff everyone is blogging about, so I kept a very low profile. I want to reach my goal and bring my weight back to 55 kilos so I still have some losing to do. I know I can do it, because I manage to do it before, and I want to do it the right way. Once I reach this weight I just need to maintain it and that’s even harder than losing it in the first place. I’ve been neglecting my body and I really need to feel comfortable in it again. Besides I have a wedding in California next summer and I want to wow everyone there =)
I’m also thinking about what I want to do, since my work is no longer satisfying. It is just not the same anymore with all the rules (that can change per day). It used to be a very good job with all the extra little benefits, but without them, it’s just a job like no other. It’s a shame because I’ve been working there for 10 years and it’s almost my second home. The week always went by so fast and I never mind going to work and go that extra mile if needed. Now I just go in, do my job and go home asap. I miss the good old days, but I’m afraid they are gone forever. So if I don’t work here, what will I do then? It’s a question I haven’t been able to answer yet.
So my dear friends, I haven’t forgotten about you. I’m doing well but just need time to work on myself and to find something I like to do...
I hope to get back to blogging soon. I still have some great recipes I want to share. Unfortunately great recipes are mostly not the healthiest ones!
