This was one of two bad effects of holidaying and Christmassing, the other of which is my weight which is very high, and had hit higher than ever. I am slowly reeling it back in from the after effects of a year of bad eating and restricted exercise culminating in VERY good food and far too much of it for the best part of a month in December. I had planned to do Red January and do exercise every single day of the month, but then I got a horrid chest infection and it's only just really relenting.
Meanwhile, beyond "I'm so fat my clothes don't fit", I'm going to meet a friend in March who I haven't really kept up with for nearly a decade after a falling out. I don't often fall out with people so I'm glad that he reached out and we're planning to build bridges.
The other thing I'm looking at getting involved in is volunteering to try to make a difference to a looked after child. I'm past the first hurdle and getting some training over the next couple of weekends. More info here: https://www.actionforchildren.org.uk/how-to-help/volunteer-with-us/independent-visitors/
