Weeell, I have been backsliding terribly, ever since Christmas really, and it's showing. I'm now 6 lbs heavier than I was before Christmas, and it's not even all about the Christmas chocs although my other half finally opened his tin of Roses, and that's been bad). I've been tempted by the Kitkat chunky limited editions, and chocolate brazils in the £1 shop. And, not exercising as much, apart from work, and fitting in a half hourish workout during the half term holiday. I might be full of good intentions in the morning, when I'm at work, but once I get home I just feel so pooped, I really don't feel like getting all hot and bothered, even though I know intellectually that I'll feel better if I do work out. It's like when I'm eating chocolate, I can hear the wiser part of my brain going, 'no, don't eat that, you know you'll regret it, you know it's 240 calories that you probably won't work off.' and yet my fingers keep on opening the packet and once that gorgeous sweetness hits my tongue, that's it. I know that resisting the first bite is a lot easier than resisting the second, not just because of the logical, 'if you don't have the first, you can't have the second' but because once the taste is there, the craving is waaay stronger than before I took the first bite. I know it geths harder to resist when I'm feeling a bit tired, or worse, depressed. Then, I just don't give a F*** anyway. And a bit of it is the cold grey weather. I have the feeling it will be easier once its' warmer and brighter, after all, I did start on SP at the end of April and my motivation seemed to be fairly strong then. Come on spring, hurry up!
