Some days I can get up at 5:30am, exercise for half and hour or more, drink hot water with lemon and then green tea, take my vitamins, have mini shredded wheat with soy milk for breakfast, and vegetarian green thai curry or a chicken salad for lunch, drink a litre and a half of water while getting on with work, come home, and have a healthy supper, a few squares of dark chocolate, do a little work and go to bed (admittedly after watching something rubbish on tv.) I honestly, honestly do this about 80% of the time.
Then there are the other days. There are the days when I drag myself out of bed, get through work, and then find myself on the couch eating chocolate covered Hobnobs (which are DIVINE by the way!) and hoping that Mark won't mind if I suggest having hamburgers or something equally decadent for dinner. (My newest favorite thing to eat is a sandwich with bacon, avocado and tomato, a tiny bit of spring onion and black pepper - bliss!!)
I am currently living through day number two. I was fine until I had texturized vegetable protein in a sauce with the consistency of snot for lunch. After eating half of it, I leaped off of the healthy living wagon with both feet. While I do feel that we all need moderation in all things, I can feel this turning into a night of debauchery. There is wine chilled, after all, and I am off for nine whole days...
Do I get back into healthy land or do I turn to decadence? Tricky. I think I'll take a glass of chilled white wine with me while I read Oprah in a bubble bath. Then I am sure I will know what to do!
