I went out with some girlfriends last night, on a pub crawl (my first pub crawl). I justified the expense and all that booze by reminding myself it was a fundraiser for breast cancer… but it was still expensive and I still drank far too much. Today, I don’t want to do anything. I’m not feeling hungover really, I’m just tired (out late, up early) and this is the first day I’ve had without an obligation of some sort so it is so nice to just stay home. As much as I’d love to do nothing though, the housework needs to get done (at least I did the laundry yesterday!) and I need to go grocery shopping, which means I have to leave the house at some point (albeit I’ll be doing it in my comfy clothes!).
Since I got back from vacation, I’ve been pretty slack. I haven’t been eating well, mostly because I’ve not been home much, and I’ve hardly worked out. I’ve also been spending a tonne of cash, with Mother’s Day, my mom’s birthday, catching up with friends, my cousin moving to town, and then yesterday getting my hair done, doing a bit of shopping, and going out for this fundraiser. May is always an expensive month in my family. I have my Dad’s birthday coming up as well, and I’ve promised to go home for the long weekend to visit with him and to go through my Grandma’s stuff with my Grandpa and let him know what I want.
Even with those things upcoming, I seriously need to get it together this week… the weather has been nice (finally!) so I’m going to get back into my summer routine of walking to and from work. It’s also time to cut back on eating out and spending, and lastly… no more alcohol. I’ve been trying to limit my alcohol the last few weeks but more so than calories it’s all the water I retain after drinking that makes me feel like hell. So, no more of that for at least a few weeks.
Time for a re-adjustment, time to get it together.
