Changing your life is hard

If you follow my blog then you will know that I have been ill for the last few weeks. A heavy cold turned into bronchitis which literally wiped me out. I'm on the mend now but it's been really hard. I genuinely can't remember the last time I was so ill. Being a single parent doesn't help. There was no one else to take my youngest to school, no one to cook and look after her and also no one to cover my work.  I work freelance so if I don't work then I don't get paid and then I can't put food on the table and pay my bills.

Anyway, exercise was clearly out as I couldn't do anything without coughing and I was quite wheezy. I'm afraid healthy eating went as well. I will confess that I filled myself up with anything that might give me enough of an energy boost to get through what I needed to do in the day.

I know making permanently healthy changes to your life is never easy and there will always be obstacles. This has been the biggest obstacle that I have had to face over the last year. It has made me wonder about these people who lose so much weight so quickly. What happens when something goes wrong? I wonder if they keep the weight off.

The important thing to me is that from Monday I'm trying to get back on track. My energy levels have improved so I'm back on the healthy eating plan. I'm going to have to build up the workouts as I'm still a little wheezy. I think I will start off with some long walks first.

I haven't weighed myself so I don't know what the damage is. I know I will have put on and I do feel a bit like a fat slug at the moment.

So yes, changing my life is hard but getting over setbacks and carrying on is half the battle. Onwards and upwards, guys!!

Speak to you soon

Love Erica xxx
