Minty is not very good at stiles so I'm trying to encourage her to work them out for herself. I don't want to have to lift her over them forever getting muddy and wet in the process ....she's pleading with me here to help her out, poor mite!
Sheep at sunset.
- Do some exercise, thus increasing my allowable calorie intake and decreasing the time available to eat. Downside is that it's dark, sleety and miserable outside and going to get worse.....sigh
- Go to the pub. I'll drink water and be distracted from temptation and see some friends. Downside, it's miserable outside and I don't feeeeel like it....whine...
- Stay in and keep busy, read my Beck and really concentrate on NOT giving in to the totally self-induced desire for fooood. Downside is that it's quite a high-risk strategy, what if I fail, it'll make it worse next time.
So, none of them really jump out at me. I know the exercise thing is the "right" answer. I'm desperately trying now to talk myself into it but then I glance out of the window and have to start all over again. I'll let you know how I get on!!
I didn't do the exercise or the pub but I did dance round the kitchen a bit while cooking supper!! (Pethetic I know....)
I have spent a good half hour reading Beck and catching up with some of the tasks, re-reading some old lessons and making new Response Cards. I also, very pleasingly, looked at my cooked portion of seafood pasta and decided it was too big. So, I almost halved it, added more greens to my salad to fill up my plate and put the rest in a tupperware for tomorrow's lunch! Now, how is that for fortitude?! I would/could not have done that a couple of weeks ago. I've spent a lot of time this evening thinking about hunger, distraction and cravings and planned out my meals for tomorrow.
So, although it wasn't exercise, it was time well spent. Phew.
