Excitement Contagion

Saturday, September 15, 2012

I feel strong emotions of excitement within me. It is like a volcano of happiness smouldering away preparing to burst out of me ... maybe its time for me to start running :)

I took some pics last night ...

... to capture my size. Pics not so clear but gives an idea.

On Friday I was at a buffet (UGH!!!) for a farewell lunch. Of course I went overboard ... but not as bad as I once would have. I noticed an interesting thing - I'm really addicted to food. That sounds stupid, but it was an awakening that I had immediately after I finished eating (when I was in the toilet actually).

I realised that as soon as I crossed the threshold of how much I should ACTUALLY eat, it became a free for all ... awful. The auto pilot kicked in and all rationality left ... numbness set in - But this time something happened before I went too far in - I STOPPED IT! I realised that don't have to succumb to the 'mindless comforting' of myself anymore ... I HAVE FULL CONTROL OVER IT ... I just have to remember that!

So this is why I am so excited ... these small insights are adding up to a very clear understanding of how I can meet my goals and that I WILL ACTUALLY MEET MY GOALS!!!

    emoticon It's so funny/weird but when I saw your pictures I thought "she looks like a Kiwi girl" and then I checked out your sparkpage emoticon I'm in Wellington - hope you've got some of the sunshine we have today ... although I'm not too sure how long it's going to last.

    I'd better dash soon and get out for a walk - running tomorrow emoticon

    Have a super day
