This week Linda has given us, in other words, to use for our Stream of Consciousness posts, which can be used any way we choose.
I seem to be one of those people who ‘go around the houses’ when I want to say something, especially if I want a favour from somebody. You know the kind of thing, for example, this morning I said to my husband that we should take my car to go supermarket shopping as it would be easier, and told him many reasons why this was, knowing that if we did he would drive. There was an ulterior motive for this though which he was to find out a bit later on when I mentioned that the car could do with some petrol. I hate petrol stations and thought I could wrangle it so that he filled the car up for me. It worked, but he knows me well, and as soon as I had finished wheedling around him persuading him to take my car he said, “in other words, you need petrol!”
This week Linda has given us resolution to use for our Stream of Consciousness posts, which can be used any way we choose.
This year I am not sure that I am going to make any New Year resolutions. The thing is, they start off well and then get left behind. This leads to guilt and deprivation, then more doing what I have resolved to give up, then more guilt and deprivation until we get to the end of the year and I am in worse shape than when I started the year!
Of course, I am mainly referring to my weight, and my struggle to lose it. I don’t know what is the matter with me but I just can’t seem to do it and it is getting me down, big time! My blood sugars are all over the place as well at the moment, which just adds to the mess! I haven’t been to the gym or healthy lifestyle appointments either, as I did quite a bit of comfort eating lately, which has led to me not wanting to know how much I weigh, and I feel guiltier than ever that my earlier enthusiasm has gone off on holiday!
Anyway, this post has got a bit depressing and is rapidly going downhill, which was not my intention at all! It does not mean that I am giving up completely on my healthy living quest, just that I am going to take a new approach to it, without putting too much pressure on myself, therefore dooming myself to failure. That is my resolution.
