I now realize why I have put on weight. It’s the cookies. They are free. And I keep on accepting them from the internet. At least that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. My delusions are diligently designed to keep me buoyant during these times. But the cookies need to go.

       I did some home yoga yesterday. And was quite chuffed with myself. During the session I developed quite an unalluring sweat. Shrek in a sauna was the look that I was going for and succeeded gloriously. Afterwards whilst playing my music’ Sexy back’ from Justin Timberlake came on. I mentally changed the words to ‘Sweaty back’ as they seemed more apt.  If I don’t laugh at the weight, I have put on I will cry. I call it my ‘love fat duvet’ as emotional eating has always been a coping mechanism. I have now decided to reverse this where healthy eating will be my new coping mechanism. It sounds so easy as I write it but I know I will be climbing the walls to escape from the Ice Cream and Cookie Monster. They can be feckin relentless. ‘Urge surfing ‘is something that I have seen recommended. It is to literally see the temptation as an impulse resembling waves in the ocean, in that, they come and they go. Well then, here goes. Now where did I put my mental surfboard? I’ll let you know how I am getting on next week.

That’s all for now.

Have a great day.

Stay fab.
