Chocolate - What Else Would I Blog About?!
Once again - yes, for the 638th time, give or take a few - I am starting a blog. There have been previous rushes of enthusiasm to share myself with the world, or possibly with myself (its all so much clearer if you write it down, don't you think?) but I have a tendency to give up because its not perfect.
Because that is how I tick - if I can't do it perfectly, I will throw my toys and go home. At school, I used to get in trouble for ripping pages out of my exercise books and throwing them away. The teachers didn't understand - my writing wasn't good enough, so I had to start the page again. Now, that may sound a little over the top - and it is. I know that. I'm not crazy, Well, ok, I'm crazy, but the looniest people are the ones who don't know they are, right?!
But let me put this in a way that some of you might relate to more. Hands up (I can't see you, but I want you to wave anyway, 'k?) anyone out there who has ever started a diet, or a health plan, or a commitment to exercise, and, when you ended up eating that doughnut on the second day (or, if you're me, about half an hour in!) you give up and go for the full on chocolate, cheese and Chinese meal because you might as well start again NEXT Monday now?
Ok - now I have your attention!
This blog is really to share with anyone who relates. I will share a lot of my story, and you will see it continue as I kick and scream my way back to health. (I am predicting this, as I AM pretty stubborn, and by that definition of insanity being 'doing the same thing over and expecting different results' I am probably insane.) I should warn you, I cry quite easily too. And if you come between me and my chocolate, you may need to be familiar with the concept of prayer. My husband has learned this. He knows to back away slowly while saying 'go ahead dear, you deserve it,due to your many gifts and radiant beauty, and the way your enthralling personality lights up my life'.
Yes, ok, ladies, if my husband actually said this, I , like you, would need to be REVIVED with chocolate, but a girl can dream...
So you see my problem? I set out to start a blog about my journey back to health and so far the whole thing is about chocolate. As my American friends would say, 'go figure....;'!
