The Guilty Éclair

I did something this morning that I am ashamed of, something I swore I would never do again but hey ho, in times of stress and trouble we will clutch at any old straw to try to possibly feel good.

I stood on the scales!

Yes, I know, I threw mine out the window ages ago but I was waiting for my prescription at the Chemist, was fed up and thought why not. Big mistake, I appear to have put on weight which set my mind into overdrive. Was it the pasta I had at the weekend or perhaps that sneaky burger? Or was it because my get up and go had got up and gone so I did no exercise, mmmm I wonder????

Whatever it was, it annoyed me, daft I know because my weight hasn’t bothered me in a while so whether it is anxiety fuelled obsessive behaviours or the fact that I am a bit conscious of a lot of silly things at the moment, this little 1lb bothered me. So like Sherlock Holmes, I am on the case

Firstly let’s examine the evidence, what have I actually eaten since Friday? Up till then I had been a good girl, I had balanced out what I actually needed versus what my emotions were telling me I needed, the old greens versus cheesecake debate.  When I sat and wrote everything down it did actually all balance out, except for one thing Watson, a very cheeky chocolate éclair. However in the middle of writing this Blog  I realised this was becoming a slight obsession. Me obsessed with food? Obsessed by eating healthily? So, after giving myself a hearty shake, the conclusion to this wee detective novel is everything in moderation Holmes, right now make small changes like cutting out caffeine, eating a good breakfast and losing the bread.

Small steps can make big changes, one day at a time!

Is convenience clouding our judgement?

How often do our minds become clouded and our judgement impaired? We can’t focus on solutions because we have already decided they will never work. How often do we stay in relationships, with friends
