I really wish I’d had the foresight to take tomorrow and Tuesday off, but alas, I’ll be braving the smoke and schlepping to the Project Sulfur offices on both days.

Because of the smoke and associated breathing issues, it’s been quite a while since I’ve been able to exercise. Despite not stuffing my face with chocolate and eating reasonably sensibly++, I’ve put on a ton of weight in the four weeks since I returned from Thailand.

As is always the way, lack of exercise is a gateway to other undesirable behaviours. Though I acknowledge that as undesirable behaviours go, these are pretty benign. It’s the usual kind of thing: way, way too much time spent scrolling mindlessly on the Information Superhighway on my phone and way, way too much time sitting about unfavourably comparing myself to other people on the Information Superhighway.

I feel bloaty and grumpy and need an intervention!

So as part of the intervention, I spent the afternoon in Bessie’s old room doing crafty things and felt significantly improved afterward. I’ve been avoiding getting stuck into some projects (the usual perfectionist fears). It was excellent to lock myself away for an afternoon and make a huge mess!

Now to work out what to do about the exercise.

++ okay, the mango advent didn’t help – but hey, it’s fruit.
