snakes & ladders


It's a good news / bad news day today.

The good news first: I have interwebs!!! Woooohoooooo!! There's a whole wide world out there just waiting to be surfed.

Still no ADSL and no cable, but after a ridiculous amount of time wasted in daily phone conversations to my favourite TelCo [grrrr! grumble mumble... nasty-horrible-lack-of-customer-service-gnarly-monsters that they are] the wireless dongle I bought a week ago has finally been activated.

So for the bad news: I've re-opened Pandora's food-box again, lost control and binged my way back up the scale a couple of kilos.

I've had such active internal dialogues, reminded myself very clearly of my goals and that my actions are contra to reaching them. But the problem is, in that very moment, my goals don't feel tangible. My immediate desire, nae "need" to shove my face full of food, does.

Time to start putting one foot ahead of the other on that ladder rung again.

You make such a valid point... Our goals are far away, but the food is right here right now.

I have complete faith in you that you will overcome this! Good luck, Ani!

You are so right about that momen... it's so hard to think beyond it when the cake is right there. Best of luck with the ladder and so good to see you back :)

I am not even worried about you. I know you can totally do this. So just climb back on the ladder, missus!

I'm certain you will get yourself back on track!

Would it help, do you think, to write your goals each morning? And then to keep a notepad handy to write them again, should the "urge" come upon you? Just a thought...
