I have slacked off in my workouts and in my posting. I’m hoping to rectify that now.
There has been something going on in my life that I haven’t been willing to write about. Those that know me know about it, but I’ve kept quiet about it here. I’m going to talk about it now, and how it’s affected my weight loss.
Toward the end of December, my wife and I decided to get divorced. In mid-January she moved out of the bedroom. In mid-February, she signed a lease on an apartment and I helped her move in.
The split has been amicable. Our daughter has chosen to live with her. They’re staying in the same town, so they are close by.
All three cats, and one of the dogs are going with her. I’ve still got my two dogs.
We haven’t filed for divorce yet, but will soon. I purchased new appliances for her apartment. She took most of the livingroom furniture. I just replaced it this weekend.
The friction, depression, and loneliness has derailed my weight loss effort. I have barely been working out recently. I’ve had more “bad” diet days than I should.
With that said, the purchase of a TV and livingroom furniture makes me feel like I am still living in a house, instead of a shell. I’m getting used to living alone, and I think I may prefer it. I’ve moved the elliptical so that I can watch TV while using it, and I expect to get back into gear with it tomorrow.
Please don’t give divorce advice. I’m already getting a ton of that from family and friends. My divorce is probably much different than yours. I do welcome advice on getting out of my rut, and losing more weight.
Wish me luck!
