'Fessing up

This World Cup has been ruinous for my routine - ruinous I tell you!! I have just been immersed in football - mostly at home and then in town for the big England games (which involved many bottles of Magners of Bulmers each time). It's been great.

But it has meant that I have just switched off the rest of my life. My house, garden, friends, diet and exercise regimes and pretty much everything else have been sidelined and given the bare minimum of attention.

And I've just LOVED it!! Usually D is home for the World Cup so I have to pretend not to be really into it. But I am and this time he was away so there was no reason not to indulge.

The only other thing keeping my attention has been golf. After 2 summers off, I'm back baby and I'm loving it too.

But, but but but, there's always one of those. I can't let this fun few weeks ruin all my hard work. And I can feel my waistline start to tug a little against my clothes. Not a lot but definitely a little.

There has been no stepping on the scales every morning. But that will change tomorrow morning. Knowledge is Power as Mrs Lard used to say and I need the power, I need it baaaaad. D is home now and there's only a few games left so I will be back running, swimming, golfing, walking and making good choices. I feel ready now.

For the record, I haven't totally given up - still played golf 2 or 3 times a week, went training twice a week and took the dogs out for walks etc. So the damage has not been great but I need to get back to what was working for me.

So, you'll be hearing from me. Hope you've all been good - I'll be checking in to your blogs soon - promise!!
