Right, time to up the anti, I must must must complete this blog everyday. I was finding that it was starting to have a positive impact on my thinking regarding food but then I started to become complacent again, not completing the blog and being less mindful about what I have been putting in my cake hole! I really find that as I write these I have these mini epiphanies, things seem to crystallise as I write. So, my conclusion is: write more, eat less!!
I eat because I love food. I love the tastes and the textures. I love cooking and baking. I also eat to reward myself, the worst example of this is treating myself to something because I’ve been really good all day (food-wise that is!). You read that correctly, I will stick to food optimising all day, come in under 15 syns and then I will reward myself with synful food, ridiculous! I eat because it is social. I was talking about this with my brother just today, every social event revolves around found – a meal, a buffet, party food etc and every trip out involves a coffee and cake, an ice cream, lunch, dinner, breakfast and so the list goes on.
Three words to describe my relationship with food right now……oh this is tough……horrible, guiltfilled, frustrating. Unsurprisingly they are all negative words.
In an ideal world the three words that would describe my relationship with food would definitely be positive….fuel, friend, controlled, would be a good start.
Eating aside, I wanna shout from the rooftops that I have nearly completed week 4 of the couch to 5k app 😀😀😀
