When life isn't going how you want it what do you do?
Is this the time to grasp these things and use them to dive out of our responsibility towards living a healthy lifestyle? Is there something in the back of your head that actually celebrates when something is going wrong in your life so you can feel fully justified to hit the fridge and pig out? How honest are we with ourselves about these situations? Life is full of troubles. They will always be there...whether or not you choose to pig out and surrender the good fight should not be dependent on whether things are going your way or not.
At the moment my life has a full plate. Apart from the usual financial hassles we all go through, I've had a severe toothache resulting with an urgent visit to the dentist to have it removed, followed by a major fevered cold, my mother has started having conversations with people who aren't there; so she has been put into hospital to get assessed for permanent care, I'm looking after her spoilt dog who has disgraced itself from both it's ends in my lounge...and will not eat regular dog food and one of my oldest friends is going through a bitter divorce and has been charged with 23 counts of child abuse...and the child abuse unit wants to interview me about him. Not a bad week eh? Even with this plate before me...no excuses. My weight is a separate issue...it will not be compromised.
How about you...what was your excuse again?
