I find that getting up at the same time and going to the gym, as I am this year, is helping me though. Saying that; our upstairs neighbours (young) were disrupting our sleep and I found that for a couple of weeks I only made it to the gym about 3 times a week and I ate more to get some energy. This of course showed up in a weight gain of 1.5 kg. I have lost most of that again but it annoys me that it occurred. I have only one week to my 1st year post-op anniversary and I wanted to be lighter than 97 kgs. Today is a new day though and I had 90 minutes at the gym this morning and got the endorphin buzz so must have worked hard enough. I'll be there tomorrow. I might even start getting up at 7 a.m., going to the gym a bit earlier and coming home to do some writing on my children's novel each day. I find I seem to write at 1000 words per hour. I would love to get published when it is finished so here's hoping.
Doctors, dietitians and new age gurus all emphasize that a regular life is best for you. It is called a circadian rhythm that our body works to and some times are better than others to do things. They have found that even the time you take medication or chemo can make a major difference in how it effects your body. One of the people I read said that your day should start at 6.30 am and you should be in bed trying to sleep at 10.30 pm every day including the weekend. If I find that recommendation, in full, again I shall post it on this blog.
Winter garb makes you look bigger with the layers you have on. By summer I will be smaller yet again and might shock you with a swimsuit picture if I look good then.I got my hair cut short in an urchin cut last week. I have a home color pack in my bathroom cupboard to take my hair back to brown when I get time to do it properly. The last color was too blond and it looks a bit coppery still from the color before that. I scored 1 jumper, one top and one flash singlet top for $15 altogether the other day so I am happy.
