Hi, Hey, Hello!
You would be correct in remembering (and if you did, wow, well done) that I have already done a post about this before. And if you didn’t then here it is.It comes from nearly exactly a year ago, which I have only just discovered because I didn’t think it had been that long since I had last talked about.
It is no longer going all that well.
I kind of had a wobble, which I hesitate to call a wobble because that makes it sound bad when really it’s not but we’re gonna go with this terrible word, all the way back in October and well to be honest as it got closer and closer to Christmas the less it seemed to make sense to me to try and give it back up again. And then January is both a shitty month and the one which houses my birthday and so doing it then is just non sensical.
And so basically I’ve just fallen back into those old habits of mine. Not quite in the same way as I did before, I no longer have it in me to eat a whole bag of to share M&Ms in one sitting but I can make my way pretty solidly and pretty quickly through a whole tub of ice cream without really noticing. And I’m also better at not having them, work is a hub for sweets and for the most part I can avoid sliding my chair over to them (they’re right behind me, I’m not that lazy) and eating them all.
But what I do currently do is feel like I cannot get through a day without something sweet in it. And it’s an impulse that I am not even attempting to ignore anymore. Or at least at the moment. Sometimes I have some fruit instead but for the most part I find myself on the hint for chocolate and convincing myself that fruit just won’t do it. And I want to get back into the habits that I held for at least 7 out of 12 months last year.
It’s kind of one of my goals for the year. Not specifically sugar because I am not removing that from my life entirely because I love dessert but there are elements that need some more fine tuning again. Like going back to 5 days off and 2 days on. And eating more fruit and veg. And actually just eating more in general, although that’s a whole other thing that we’re not going into right now. And cooking more. Basically my diet is the last piece of the puzzle that I need to slot into things.
But first I’m gonna tackle the sugar thing, when February starts because I’ve got some birthday chocolate to finish.
