Time to talk food again, I did some naughty eating over the weekend and it’s reflected immediately upon the scales! Seems terribly unfair, but I guess I can also see it as a signpost that tells me with great clarity, that what I consumed was not particularly good for this body. Different bodies have their own responses to the fuel that we provide, and it’s important to find the food that works for your own unique and wonderful self.
I’m really feeling the craving for carbs that seems to be so easily stimulated for me, if I stray off the path even just a smidgen, the appetite wakes up and the voice of addiction begins its siren song. As I sit here and write, that voice is telling me that fish and chips is a perfectly reasonable dinner to have, it started as a piece of fish with salad that I will make, but that coaxing voice is luring me into carbohydrate overload!!
I know it’s just plain lazy on my part, but at times like this I long for a partner with the same interest in pursuing optimum health, to share the load of getting it altogether. Someone who loves to create masterpieces in the kitchen, oh what a dream man that would be, I would happily be the kitchen hand joyfully clearing up the mess left by creativity gone wild.
In the meantime it’s up to me to create this new lifestyle for myself, and one thing that I have learned as I walk the path of life, is that self-flagellation doesn’t help when it comes to creating and manifesting change of any kind. My mother always says that kindness is one of the most underrated qualities and I heartily agree with her. But we need to remember to apply this wisdom to ourselves as well as to others, imagine a world where everybody was kind to themself. Hard to imagine isn’t it but I am one of the dreamers, just like the amazing John Lennon with his song “Imagine” Please enjoy this classic song and really listen to the words, even though you probably know them well.
