How are YOU today?
I’m annoyed with myself.
I ate chocolate again.
Even though I said to myself this morning,
“No chocolate for you today, Mrs.”
I could qualify that, and tell you it wasn’t a box of Maltesers,
or even a bag.
Nope it was a mere handful of mint Aero thingies.
All air, tied together with a bit of chocolate.
But that’s not the point.
I’m annoyed because of my lack of will power,
my inability to say no.
And that is EVERY DAY,
about so many things, and at so many different levels.
Of all the Wednesday blogs I have written and you have read,
I bet more people can relate to this than anything.
Every day I say I won’t eat bread, butter or chocolate.
Guess what I do every day.
And I wonder why my jeans aren’t getting any looser.
I know I could go to Slimming World or Weightwatchers,
but SURELY! I should be able to lay off the chocolate!
Maybe the secret of Slimming World is the Commmunity Support.
Let’s face it, our little Blogging Community is pretty powerful,
so I’m guessing it’s the same principle.
Maybe when we make public our intention,
share our progress,
we feel more motivated than if we are dealing with it alone.
I do also know that if I can SEE progress, it spurs me on.
So it’s just a question of making the choice.
RIGHT. That’s it. From NOW.
I choose not to eat chocolate, bread or butter.
Just for Today.
Exercise? Did I hear you say exercise?? Steady!!!
One thing at a time!!!!
Another habit I have developed which I really ought to address
Spend way too much time on my Ipad,
when I could be reading a book or drawing a picture.
And I know it’s not only me, because when I turn up,
there you all are !!!!
Right. who’s with me?
Who will stay away from bread, butter, chocolate
AND Facebook for the rest of the day?
Am I alone?
If you always do what you always did,
you’ll always get what you always got.
Surely I can stick to this until I go to bed???
love and hugs,
PS If you think chocolate is an inane problem,
replace the word chocolate above with your own particular
flavour of addiction.
It’s all part of the same process.....
