These are two things that are new to me, Spanx really shouldn’t be new, I’ve been thinking about them, in depth for quite some time…and Positive Eating because I made it up yesterday.
Spanx – I love Spanx as much as the next girl, probably more if the next-girl is a size 0. What I did not know about Spanx, until I bought some, was that they are crotchless… which is simply TERRIFYING. Not only the day-to-day-overexposed-crotchlessness of them,, but the whole pee-ing through a fabric outer-vagina, whilst trying to avoid inadvertently peeing on fabric.
I like to think I eat quite healthily, this is because I enjoy good food, and when I (middle-classily) come home from Waitrose, the Farmers Market, or Borough, with my goodies (in a hessian bag for life, of course), they are 90% free-range, organic, healthy happy hens, plucky pigs and fab fish, my stock-pile (just in case) of nuts and seeds is comically noteworthy….
So I kinda got to wonder how I sometimes eat so much CRAP.
I realised it’s the quick food I grab on-the-go, and cheap dinner out with friends, and Pizza-Thursday in the office – and so I’ve decided, I will not eat anything that I haven’t made a Positive Choice to eat, and avoiding ‘dead food’ (basically white carbs, which don’t do anybody any good). Sometimes that positive choice could be that I want to eat a kilo of Stilton, or a five-pack of doughnuts, but most of the time it’ll be the choice to eat good stuff. Ans this is the plan, and why I am sitting in my office eating (homemade) pea and ham soup, while the boys eat a large pizza each, once of which cost £20.. I mean, what do you have to have on a pizza to make it cost £20? The mind boggles.
