The trouble with fruit

I love fruit, I really do. The orange or apple pieces that I have on my train journey in the morning are just so delicious. But only when just perfectly ripe and ready.

The trouble with fruit is that you never really know what you're going to get... when it's bad, it's very, very bad.

Something different

As part of the 'Commando Program'' we get one meal off a week.

One of the meals was a gorgeous night out at Manly Pavillion for our wedding anniversary. We went for Ben and Jerry's ice creams afterwards (Phish Food, my favourite). I couldn't finish my ice cream! Hmmm.... something different!

This morning we went for brunch at our favourite spot. It's a cafe by a park and there are trees to climb, lots of running around room and a playground. The perfect cafe!

I indulged in sourdough toast, bacon and scrambled eggs. I found myself polishing off the rocket garnish first. I found myself sharing half the bacon and eggs with the Tsunamis. I found myself not being able to finish the bacon anyway.  Hmmmm... something different!

As time goes by, I'm making better choices and listening to my body. Not because I 'have' to, but because I want to. Hmmmm.... something different!

It is working

Could this be the key? I have nothing to say about my diet one way or the other EXCEPT

it is working.

I am paying no attention to it whatsoever. I am not obsessing. I am not even thinking.

it is working.

I'm not eating funny foods. I'm not craving anything. I'm not scared if I eat a morsel that's 'not on the plan'

it is working.

There is no hurry. No stress. No 'I should be' or 'I shouldn't be'. It just is what it is and

it is working.

I know this because even though I am not measuring myself or weighing myself, we are taking photos every Sunday evening in the same tight clothes and

it is working.

Three words that stand out for me this week:

1. Persistence
2. Consistence
3. Daily

I'm charmed, as ever, by Diminishing Lucy
