I am the guilty one today, i am the one who said last wednesday, after being snowed in, that i was glad i didn’t get in my car and try my luck on the roads. I have spent too many needless hours on the roads spinning up hills in the snow and ice. I had sworn never to do it again!
After looking outside this morning very early, i was confused as there seemed more snow than promised, but some sleet in the air too. The bbc had say it may wash away with rain, after promising a couple of hours before that it would dump it down with snow! I decided that i would give it a go, and be an idiot! To cut a long story short, i got into serious difficulties in swansea, and a 35 minute trip turned into a 100 minute trip, after having a couple of slides and bumps into the pavement in my car! I eventually made it to mumbles and discovered i couldn’t get up the side roads! I could only then make it home by the M4, which is the long way around to say the least.
The point i am making in all of this is that we are all guilty about not learning lessons, and sometimes doing the wrong thing time after time, even if causes us pain and stress each time. The same could be said about our eating, all of us binge from time to time, there are various reasons for this but most of them involve stress of some kind. Then we get stressed because we have eaten so much and so badly!
The facts are that most of us are never going to stop making rash decisions, mistakes with our foods after giving in to sudden urges, the difference between being successful and constantly tripping ourselves up must be making “less” mistakes, and doing the “right thing” more. Hard to do but sounds simple. Next week’s start is about practicing good habits constantly, and not making so many emotional decisions on food that usually end up with us ingesting mega-calorie foods!
I am promising myself to do better than ever next week, and never to risk driving in so much snow again!
