Day one of my so-called “reboot”…I spent the day struggling to ignore the chocolate that is strategically located in every possible location imaginable, even the most obscure. Luckily Valentine’s Day is only a week away, and all temptation will be thwarted. Except for the fact that Valentine’s chocolates will be replaced by Easter eggs. Or St. Patrick’s day chocolates? Beer? What do you eat on St. Patty’s Day?
And though well intentioned, my boyfriend is on a baking -“try this”-kick. Having just returned to university, combined with having moved into a house ripe with live-from-the-earth types (patchouli), has peaked his interest in food. While the house smells of fresh baked goods and home prepared delicacies, created from the freshest and finest ingredients – it is more than I can deal with! Today’s temptation included fresh bread and pork souvlaki.
And so I trudge along with the recognition is that I need to finish this ordeal. As I sketch out the map for my future plans, I recognize that I cannot continue to struggle with this weight issue – it is too time consuming and emotionally draining.
