I’m starting this blog as a way to motivate myself to use my time better, sort my life out a bit and not spend my days lying in bed, listening to the same song on loop.
I’ve been on summer break from university since the end of April/start of May. It’s been so long I can’t even remember when I actually finished. In that time, I have done nothing but work and eat. But hey, at least I’m working.
Over the summer, I’ve gained around 2.5st in weight but done nothing to pay off the overdraft I took out to cover last year’s Christmas expenses. Both of these things need to change. They wouldn’t usually bother me, but the fact that they’ve happened at the same time has left me in a bit of a strange situation; none of my clothes fit anymore but I don’t have the money to replace them. So something needs to be done.
I’ve never been particularly big into saving money or exercising. I prefer to spend my money as soon as I get it, usually on things like games or DVDs that enable me to sit on my arse for extended periods of time.
I am a pro at making excuses too. I mainly use them to not exercise or to not eat healthily, but I’m also pretty good at coming up with stories for where my money has gone. Y’know, instead of just admitting that I went crazy on ASOS and spent £40 on a pair of shorts. Even though that has actually never happened. I don’t wear shorts.
This is why I need a blog to force me to use my time, money and whatever other resources I have available to me in a productive way.
