I'm not sure if this is a confession or a pledge... I think it is a bit of both. I realised last night that I have absolutely no control over what goes into my mouth from the time I finish eating dinner to the time I eat breakfast. Last night I sat and ate my way through three whole protein bars... and I did the same thing Friday night as well! Over those two nights, I would have gobbled up an extra 8000kJ
I woke up this morning, and had some vague recollection of eating something during the night... but I couldn't remember what it was! So I looked into the pantry to find my packet of power wraps open (they're like mountain bread wraps I guess, just low carb/high protein version) and some leftover baked beans in the fridge
Then I remembered I had opened the wraps and put cold baked beans inside. Attempting to eat that in my half awake state, I had dripped baked beans all down my pyjamas!!
So, apart from being annoyed because I had only just washed the pyjamas
, it was also scary because I didn't even remember what I had done. I can't even say what time it was even! I had to look in the cupboard to remind myself. I'm like a drunk who doesn't remember how much they drank
Well, confession over, here come the pledges
1. I am not buying any more protein bars until after Easter at least. I only have one left out of my previously massive stash, so that's just gonna have to last!
2. I already resolved not to buy anymore icecream until after Easter as well as I proved to myself a few weeks back that I can't be trusted with that either!
3. Every night before I leave work (or at some stage before dinner if I'm not at work) I will write up a To-Do-List, and write down everything I will do from the minute I walk in the door to the minute I go to bed. And I will do only the things written on the list. If eating is not on the list then I won't do it! I tried this once before and it worked alright. Now, I'm stuck doing it every night
