It is a grey, overcast day, but quite warm and due to be blisteringly hot later.
That means we shall be inundated with visitors again, and our road will be used as an overflow car park by those who do not want to support our town by paying the £2 all day parking fee. Last year, people were parking half on/off pavements and blocking the way for residents with mobility scooters. Sadly there are no road markings to suggest on road parking is not permitted here, so we have to grin and bear it. So far, no-one has actually blocked anyone’s drive but some vehicles have parked opposite driveways which has made access in and out a little difficult. With heavy traffic going to and from building sites at the end of the road, it is only a matter of time before one visitor gets hit. I promise I won’t tell.
Breakfast has been had and Hubby’s weight is coming down nicely. I’ve been taking a good look at my own and although I’m currently out of target (thank goodness I’m having a couple of weeks off), if I go by the original target I set myself, I am bang on. I overshot this by four pounds in August 2019, and so that became my official target which I have only danced around three or four times as most times I’m on the upper side of it.
Being completely logical and not making excuses, I am at a weight I know is comfortable and right for me, so I am not going to beat myself up about a pound or two over my leeway allowance for something I actually hit by mistake! This has made me feel so much better in myself and though I’m not always reaching for the biscuit tin, at least I am not mentally slapping myself if I fancy one………. or three.
Diet has always been about attitude as well as calorie counting/healthy eating and balance, and IMO if you feel guilty about eating something perhaps you shouldn’t, it becomes depressive if not obsessive which in turn can lead to binges and then other health issues.
Once you get a better understanding of what you eat and perhaps why you crave certain things at certain times, access to some sensible advice to point you in the right direction to address the situation to suit you is half the battle. Just my opinion.
