I am not well again, I have yet another cold. This would be the 3rd in less than 2 months and I'm pretty sure why. It's because Hubby has been home and I have been eating more crap food than decent stuff. And yes, I know I can't really blame him, he doesn't actually hold me down and shove it in but he has been home more days than not over the last 5 weeks and he is a crap food buyer and eater and because it is here I eat the stupid stuff too. So that makes me stupid aye. It's not like it is nicer than the healthy fresh stuff. I mean gosh, melted cheese on WHITE!!! bread. How is that nicer than a freshly picked orange. It wasn't, I knew it wouldn't be, I ate it anyway. Stupid.
He is back at work this week and I am going to be eating nothing but healthy stuff. I have made up a big pot of lentils and vegetables, I have plenty of eggs, oranges, fish and meat if I want that. The crap he left here has gone to the chooks, the icecream is out in the shed freezer, my fridge is pure again.
I am having hot lemon and honey drinks today with a couple of sleeps so by tomorrow I will be feeling up to getting out and doing stuff. I need to start walking again, that seems to stop when he is home as well. I think I need to work on self discipline, doesn't look like I have any when he is around...
I have been reading a thread on Fabulous at fifty on the Simple Savings site and the last couple of days I have felt anything but. Reading other women's thoughts on the subject did get me to throw out some daggy clothes that I no longer like though and I think as I feel better I will get rid of some more. Eventually, maybe, most of the crappy clothes will be replaced with things that look halfway decent. That might keep me eating the way I want to as well. It can't hurt anyway.
I need to get fitter, it will enable me to do heaps more. Just got to get those bleedin' iron levels up. I am still working on that. I need to have more tests next week as the blood test that I had last week shows that they are still too low and the doctor says they need to find out why so they can be fixed, then I will be able walk at a decent pace to get fitter. So that's another reason that I shouldn't be eating cruddy food. If I want to be healthy then I think that any food that goes into the body should be healthy. At least more healthy stuff than cruddy stuff. and now I have made a start again I will stick to it, even when he is home.
This is why we grow our own food. So we can have fresh, healthy food every day. Why I don't stick with that I have no idea.
Off to have a bowl of soup. And an orange!
