Happy New Year!

I'm feeling better already. I've had a few days with little food inside my cold flat and am feeling more controlled. I won't say I'm in control because I'm not. I have a strong craving for all things sweet.

This morning I scanned the corner shops shelves for something sweet and doughy for breakfast. Thankfully I stuck to just buying my intended fruit juice and ate cereal. I forgot that this weight business is about such constant small victories.

I'm feeling positive about so many things today. I had a total spa day at home last night with all my favourite bathroom products, so I feel thoroughly scrubbed and gloriously clean.

I realized on the bus today that I have no concept of my size in relation to others. There was a larger lady on the bus opposite and I found myself rather horridly comparing my body to hers. I don't usually do that because most people are smaller than me. I wasn't critical of her, just curious how I must look to others. We were both wearing slouchy black leggings and both looked fairly tired.

The amount I have been napping last year has really worried me, so I want to ensure that I'm out and about every day to move. Weight gain has meant that things I found easy last year are beginning to constrict.  Thank god I'm in a conscious mind about my food this year.

Is so funny how exercising feels so great, but its so easy to fall off the wagon. Why do we ignore that which we love?
