So I tripped and fell in a food hole and ate my feelings – for two whole weeks!
Does this happen to other people? Do you ever find yourself at the wrong end of a packet of Tim Tams and instead of dusting yourself off and saying “Geeze, I took that a little too far,” you instead go and raid your four year old’s Easter Egg stash while he sleeps? And then, instead of going to the gym after work the next day like you usually do, you come home via the pizza takeout shop and smash a six pack of delicious beer.
I find it so easy to fall into a cycle of bad food and guilty feelings which always seems to snowball out of control at the speed of an avalanche.
I’d like to blame the stress of my job but I suspect it is a chicken and egg situation. It’s hard to pinpoint which came first – a bad day at work or a bad day of eating which amplified my feelings about my bad day at work. Same with the migraines. Did they rear their ugly head because I am stressed out, or because I inhaled all the chocolate in a five kilometre radius?
I have issues.
At least you can’t accuse me of being boring.
Apparently I need to get better at being a little naughty and moving on. I need to look into the 80/20 philosophy. Because being good all the time really isn’t for me.
Anyway, I am pleased to report I have pulled myself partially out of the hole. I am back in training. And mainly eating how I should, around 80% of the time.
So go on, dust your shoulders off.
And I have an appointment with a guru about my bodgy knee this week. Because I need to keep eyeballing all of my excuses.
Stay strong amigos.
