L is for Lazy bones

Last year, over summer, I worked up to 30 hours or less a week and almost everyday I managed to exercise too. I'd walk up to 5 or 6 miles every other day, put my iPod in and just walk around my village, up to the main roads, along the cliffs. On rainy days, I'd whack on a fitness DVD or a YouTube video and let the workout begin.

So it strikes me as awfully lazy to be how I am now. It's being at university that has done this to me! Damn you uni! I've put on 11 pounds since I started uni  - I was 7 stone 3lbs so maybe I needed it, but still! I've eaten so much pizza, 'Spoons burgers and various take away's, I've drank thousands of calories worth of alcohol and fizzy drinks. My portions are huge (considering I'm supposed to be a poor student!) and I'm just feeling less confident with myself and my body - I guess we all have our hang-ups though?

Once you're in a routine, it's so hard to get out of it. I don't sleep before 2am, I eat late at night and sleep in too late to have a proper breakfast. I've got my body clock all confused, and I'm not nearly as healthy as I used to be, it's making me pretty unhappy being so lazy! The more annoying thing is, it's only me who can get me out of this cycle, but me...I'm in lazy bones mode!

Now, to hunt down that motivation!

    1. I think many people can relate! I complain so much about how lazy I am...whilst I sit on the sofa...watching Tv...with chocolate. Definitely a dilemma!

    Now, that rather sums up things, doesn't it? :D
    Hope you get out of the lazybones mode soon! Good luck.

  3. Don't be too hard on yourself, Issy. I doubt if you could be considered anywhere as lazy as I am. I don't work out, unless you consider playing Angry Birds working out. LOL.

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog. :)

  5. It's hard to find motivation to get out during college. Homework and stress can bow ya down- but just remember the best way to get rid of that stress is to take a little walk.
