with all the best intentions I will achieve

today I ate slower. I was also conscious of how many sweets I devoured from the roses tin. all last nights early morning good intentions failed. I failed good friends today. thing is they are so good they will give me a chance to make up for it. I snore loudly. as a consequence I have to sleep late into the morning. I didn't get up to go out so I didn't buy the ingrediants for the rice dish. I ate chip shop chips. however, the good intentions are still there!!! I am motivated to continue for my health. I've read all the posts and love the positivity and ideas for recipes. you guys really are supportive and that's something special. I wrote this blog and I will write more. Hopefully with better news. that's it folks!

  • I also fall down and have to get myself up again. Sometimes it's just a stumble, others a complete wipe out. I find that the time leading towards sticking to the a good healthy diet is as you have described. It is a grown consciousness about what I am eating and how I am exercising, and regret plays a massive role to make me want to exercise discipline. What I take from you post is that you are getting there. You are going to make it work.

  • Hi Becca70,

    At least your honest also with yourself.

    It is hard with the temptations about but try and read some posts or at least think of the ones you have read before you dip! : ) that's what I do and it seems to keep me on the straight and narrow.

    But please don't give up. Think of that lovely figure your aiming for.

    Good luck.

  • Hi today's a new day and a fresh slate so to speak,👍 what I find helpful now is to look at the calories in chocolates before I eat one it's such a shocker that it stops me straight away😢when I think I used to grab a handful and sit eating one after the other in front of the telly what a stupid woman was I? 😢😢😢😢😢😢

  • Hi Becca,

    Great to hear you're motivated to continue for your health, and that you've gained some positivity from reading the posts, and that you've got some ideas for recipes to try. Move forward with that mind-set, and you'll hopefully have a really good week ahead.

    Like RiverWalk said, when you fall down, just get up again and move forward. Good intentions and motivation can really help.

    Enjoy your day and have a great weekend.

    Lowcal :-)

  • I have become a real grump about Christmas and the gluttony it encourages. It is very hard for those of us who are struggling to go healthy and there is great pressure to join in the excess. Is it any order that we will fall down. But as everyone has said it is important to get back on it. It is a journey and there will be stumbles on the way.

  • Antoria I am feeling the same! So much hype and new ways to seperate us from our money and sense!!! Luckily I had a wake up call after a crazy mad weekend of over indulgence left me feeling rubbish, really bleurgh (technical term!!) so I'm planning a lovely gentle Christmas with family and good friends 😊 starting with a ceilidh tonight, then a few weeks of good nutritious food and lots of walking 😊

  • Anna, that sounds just wonderful and so much fun. You will be starting the New Year so positively and will have no need to succumb to all the gym offers to get rid of the bleurgh that the commercial pressure has made happen in the first place. I wonder what an out of space visiting alien would make of our behaviour around this time of year!
