As some of you will know I had my first day away from work in 2 months yesterday.
As I was driving home from work the night before thinking "This feels weird - no work tomorrow!" my little fat demon started whispering in my ear.
"Gee two months is a looonnnggg time - you deserve a reward"
Oh no, I thought, here we go. And the fight started in my head as I got closer to the supermarket near my house that has the chocolate I LOVE...
"Come on you have worked for SO many days, you should relax, kick back, treat yourself - you have been so good on your diet"...
For a few moments there it got kinda scary but then my will power muscle, which has been developing nicely, kicked in.
"Wait a god damn minute. That chocolate bar has the same amount of calories as 2/3 of a pound of fat...."
Obviously fat-o-demon knew where this was headed and called on screaming 4 year old brat to intervene.
"I *sob* want *sob* the CHOOOCOOOLATTEEEE!!!!!! Its so unfair I just *sob* wan..."
It took a split second to recognise who this new bratty voice was and I wan't having a bar off it.
"Listen kid - get in the naughty corner - now! And I just realised - I'd have to walk/jog for 5 hours straight to burn that off just to get back to where I am now. Why would I waste all that time ..."
And with that, the fat-o-demon knew it was a lost cause and my willpower muscle got that little bit stronger.
I parked my car 200 metres from my front door and strode home feeling very smug!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour through my head! lol
