A lesson - I hope . . .
Saturday, December 27, 2014
Contrary to my intentions, I had another difficult day yesterday – well plain BAD day actually. I need to consider what it is about Christmas that instantly makes me revert to bad habits – picking at a bit of this and a bit of that and in the end no structure and no way to count the calories that I consume. Yesterday was a REALLY picky day – goodness knows how it stacked up but it certainly has to stop. I had completely stopped doing that and had put discipline into my eating habits on a regular basis. So I’m pretty annoyed with myself. Only a couple of days, you may say, but I feel, in myself, that it’s the top of a slippery slope.
By chance, I read a very useful blog this morning – I was “just surfing” as I’m sure we all do – and have to thank ALICIA363 for a nudge and some inspiration. ‘Studying the slender people’ – all about her taking note of the way slender women make judicious choices of food and reject or refuse what they don’t actually need.
It certainly helped me this morning. I’m pleased to report that earlier I took the lid off the Christmas chocolate truffle jar – and I don’t even like chocolate much – to take a truffle to have with my coffee but an alarm bell rang in my head - 'Nope, I really don't need this' - so I popped it back into the jar, replaced the lid and continued on my way. A tiny victory but a step back from the path I feared I was taking - for which I have to thank ALICIA 363 who reminded me to be more aware at a moment when I needed that lesson.
