The cold has really arrived and the danger that that brings is already playing havoc with my diet! Yes, it’s the eat everything in sight so that I will have plenty of fat on this fleshly vehicle and will be able to make it through the long hard winter months syndrome. What is it about the cold that does this to us, all year-long I resist eating bread and enjoy the wonderful state of health that comes from listening to my body, then all of a sudden it’s winter and all of my willpower is simply gone.
I’m going to have to come up with a system for this, putting on weight for winter might be ok if I had lost it all again come summer but somehow it never seems to work like that. The first step is to start making my almond meal muffins again, I leave out the sweet ingredients and just make them plain so you can have them with soup or as little sandwiches. And I am sure there are other good alternatives that will assist me in keeping my wonderful figure as we go through these dark months.
But I keep thinking that the place to truly effect this change is inside my head, it’s my thoughts that have shifted in response to the changing season and so to get a different outcome I need to change the thoughts. Mmmmmmm this is going to take some reflection, I can feel a sense of unworthiness swirling around inside of me which is definitely a part of this whole thing. Time to dive into myself and see what I can find in this ever-moving journey of discovery, slowly evolving into a better version of who I am……………..
I will keep you posted on my progress, hopefully with tips on how you too can stay slim and warm for winter!
