I don’t see Jenny as often as I used to anymore. It used to be one visit a week but now it’s once a fortnight.
The reason I don’t see her so much is because I know the routine really well now. I know what I should be doing and I do it. But it is still nice to check I am doing ok every now and then.
This week has been a particularly hard week for me. I have really struggled with staying motivated. I have had a real ‘can’t be bothered’ attitude and it’s lasted all week.
Yesterday I saw Jenny and she gave me a bit of a telling off. She could see that I had let myself slip a bit. When I go she gives me a facial because she thinks it’s important to look after your skin. I have some products at home so I can keep my skin looking good. Lately, though, I haven’t used it because I can’t be bothered.
She says that I am heading on a downward spiral if I carry on like this.
I have noticed though that I have not really taken any care with things like my skin, my appearance, my general well being all this week. My eating has been ok – it could have been better especially the day I ate cake.
I don’t want to go on that downward spiral so today I have decided to try harder. I got up this morning washed and blow dried my hair, remembered to put on my jewellery and makeup and I put on some nice clothes. I felt I needed to take my time and get to the stage of having some pride in my appearance.
I went out with my mum and sister in law and I had a really lovely day. I have to say all the effort has worked. I feel I am back to my normal self.
I have learnt that having a bit of pride in your appearance is really important. Spending that little bit of extra time getting ready and looking after yourself is just as important as losing all the weight and it has cheered me up no end.
