So yeah, got the old eyebrow wax and tint yesterday and the stylist went a touch overboard with the colour. Lucky I’ve got a week at the beach starting tomorrow. Plenty of time in the sand and sun means they will fade in no time. I promised myself a while ago that when I hit 125 I would treat myself to a haircut and colour (since it desperately needs it), but since I’ve got this week at the beach coming up I decided to wait and see where I stand at the end of the week and if I’m still under 125 when I get back, i’ll get it done then. Nothing like a bit of extra incentive to keep me on the straight and narrow. Not that I plan to stay completely stay on the straight and narrow. In fact I plan to drink like a fish but keep on track with the food and exercise and hope I can manage to maintain for the week. Let’s face it, I can’t be this virtuous forever and if don’t let go a bit soon my mental health is going to suffer. Luckily my dietician agrees. I know I need it and on one hand I can’t wait. On the other hand I’m terrified if I let my guard down for even a few days, old habits will start to creep back in and I will start to undo all my hard work. Add to that, I’ll be completely off the grid. No phone, no internet which means no blog outlet and most importantly, no My Fitness Pal to track my kj intake. I’ve learned enough by now to be able to gauge approx what most things are but it will be scary for a control freak like me without my safety net.
I have Dan, my sister-in-law Kylie and my step-daughter Vivienne all promising to help me keep myself in check. I just hope it’s enough to save me from myself. Man alive, never did I think I’d be so stressed about going away to relax at the beach for the week. I think I’ll be fine. I’ve come too far to let myself fall now. I know I have enough strength to get back on track as soon as I get back but that nagging little voice telling me that I might fail like every other time just won’t go away.
In other news, I seem to be developing a neck!!
Which is awesome 🙂 It’s amazing to think that I am now 24.5kgs lighter than my heaviest weight! I can’t go back there. Not in a million years.
