Diet o’clock 1st of September

This week there was curry.

This week seems to have passed me by and I am not sure where it went.  I was off work with the boys as it is the last week of the summer holidays.  Early on in the week we headed to Wales for a few days and headed up Mount Snowden and had a mooch around Wales.  Back end its been back to school shopping and getting all of those things done I wanted to do these 6 weeks.

With everything we had on I’ll admit I haven’t given much thought to food really.  We stopped off at a place next to the motorway on the way there and faced with eating something I would likely kick myself for or nothing at all I went for nothing.  When we got to the top of the mountain there was mostly pies on offer so I had a bite of each of the boys and that was enough.  They had ice cream and I didn’t.

Now in the past this would have felt like a victory, and perhaps it is , but I was actually quite happy waiting until I could get something I really wanted.

There is certainly something of a change in my thinking and whilst there is a long way to go I am happy that for the most part I keep trying to make the right choices.

Oh and then I ate a gigantic gummy worm.  I mean freaking huge.

Worth it!

  1. Bravo to you – here in the states they make a kids’ dessert … chocolate pudding in a clear cup, crumbled-up chocolate Oreo cookies (with the white cream scraped off) on top of the pudding and then they embed the gummy worms inside the pudding. “Worms in the garden” … one day you’ll indulge in the worm’s habitat and not feel guilty in the least. 🙂

  2. yeah, i get those little shifts that are seismic when your eating habits start to change. Like when it’s not a struggle to not eat something (gummy worms or bears not withstanding — don’t tell Teddy, I eat bears) because you’d rather wait for something better/healthier as you’re starting to like that stuff. feels a little strange sometimes, doesn’t it? but strange is good.
