The Wrong Direction

Well well well. Hasn't my initial effort been less than stellar!

Things have been going backwards at a rapid rate the last month or so. I've put on 5kg, damaged my knee, lost a love, and generally been a sad sack for the last few weeks.

However tomorrow is a new day, and I'm determined to make it a good one. I've got my meals planned out on myfitnesspal (if you are a user, add me - girlybirdy), have lined up a friend to go for a walk, and will apply for some new jobs in between! The job front has been great lately, I've been working from home doing some editing for a friend.

I'm not too sure what direction I'm going to take the blog in. A general life or a full on weightloss blog? I don't think my meals are that interesting but it might keep me more in check. Hmmmm. Will see what tomorrow brings.

Welcome to the jungle...


So I've jumped on the bandwagon (cue the applause).

I'm turning 30 in a couple of months and if I'm being honest, the thought scares the living bejeezus out of me! I really envisioned living a different life to what I am now. That said, I'm not complaining. Just....concerned. I think I have used my 20's to coast along, enjoying what came along but not really thinking about the future. Currently I'm living in country NSW, single-ish, working casually in a job I am beginning to see doesn't fulfill me, and registering at the (very) heavy end of the weight scale.

The weight thing, I am working on. I have lost 30kg in the last 7 months, with a few slip ups here and there. As for work...well here's the thing. I spent 4 years at university to get my degree. To just turn around and say 'it's not what I want', feels like a slap in the face for my parents who supported me during that time. More on this later no doubt!

So here I am, thinking about my future and using this little blog to document my present.

I hope you enjoy the ride.
