“You know the rule, if I can’t fit in any fruit I’m not allowed a Ferrero Rocher”.
What is it with me and eating until I’m so full I can’t breathe? Why do I gorge on everything?
This morning it was my OH’s mums 60th birthday so we went out to a Chinese Restaurant for Dim Sum… Admittedly I did eat a bit of everything AND I had two pieces of mooli cake (my favourite) and a slice of birthday cake – though it was one eighth of the cake as opposed to my usual one quarter!!!! I kept going long after I was full – HOWEVER I did stop much earlier than I usually would – so thats a start!
Usually at Dim Sum I’ll stuff my little face until I feel like I’m going to hurl BECAUSE it is SO DAMN tasty!!!! But today I just had one of everything, an extra sui mai (coz thats how I roll) and an extra piece of mooli cake… It’ll be good to see myself in a few months and see if I still give in to temptation that badly OR if once my mojo gets going – I’ll be able to not eat everything in sight EVER!
I was so stuffed I didn’t eat again until this evening when we made ourselves a GIANT batch of Minestrone soup – using this recipe but with a bit of added balsamic vinegar at the end! – It was pretty good! Not Ferrero Rocher good – but good. I’ve also started posting EVERYTHING to pass my lips on my instagram! CHECK IT OUT
I’ve also decided to start recording my Seven Daily Rituals (I stole these from the APP) here – for you all to see 🙂 As well as stopping being a lard ass you see – I’d like to give up my Facebook addiction and reconnect with my life 🙂
