I’ve decided more than ever that I am a creature of habit.
Today, I had my first human interaction for four weeks. I live alone and I’m in the “high risk” category for this whole virus stuff, and as much as I dislike actually going outside (and often less times do I enjoy seeing humans), being told you can’t leave the house is still frustrating to say the least. I’m even scared to put my rubbish out in the communal bins out the front of my building because, well, they’re communal – and I’ve heard COUGHING.
In this first human interaction I’ve had for four weeks, i accidentally brushed my brothers hand as he held out a plastic bag of groceries and medication that my parents had sent him on a run for. Needless to say I was overjoyed when I found actual chicken and minced beef, because my meat supply is running low (that’s not a pun, believe it or not!). Also there were 4 packets of Wotsits (they’re like cheetos for you ‘Muricans). I’ve been watching what I eat for the past month having put myself on a calorie controlled diet, and crisps weren’t on my essential list when shopping, mostly because when I get them I eat them within the first couple of days… and that’s exactly what happened today.
I guess it’s not so bad, one day out of this month I have failed in my attempts at eating sensibly, and ultimately I have managed to shed 14lb so far. I have a way to go because I was born a chonk and will probably remain a chonk until the day I poof into the oblivion, but 14lb is a bloody good start and I’m kind of proud. Also, with the theme of my blog being focused a lot on me taking accountability, seems only right to mention this now with my new target in mind.
In other news, meet Zack. He’s cute and I liked his face, so I stole him for a picture. That’s all. If you see him ask him what he’s wearing because lately I’ve totally sucked at grabbing credits for people I steal for pictures, so sorry about that.
Make it a beautiful day, Spoonies. You’re worth it. xoxo
