Egad. Have just been shopping and I knew I was in trouble before I even went….
I had pilates first thing this morning. Actually when I say ‘first thing’ I mean it in a relative sense…. I am on holidays, so ‘first thing’ was actually 10am and despite my instructor thinking that gave me heaps of time, I still crawled out of bed at 9.45am to get there! Anyway… at pilates I was telling my instructor (also a neighbour and friend) what I wanted to do today.
I was, I said, keen to go the library to get some reading fodder. I was supposed to go and buy a new desk chair (on my ‘to-do’ list since April) and I really needed some groceries. However, I said, I knew my motivation / commitment to Weight Watchers wasn’t yet strong enough that I would resist temptation if I went shopping.
So, while still dressed in vaguely decent clothes (though sweaty) straight after my pilates lesson I went to the library AND decided to go grocery shopping. Toilet paper is of the essence you see…. (Desk chair wasn’t on post-workout agenda because it is one thing calling into my local shops looking bedraggled, but not even I would venture further afield like this!)
And, you guessed it…. once inside the supermarket, with hardly a second thought I located the health food aisle and didn’t pick up one packet of my current favourite thing (gluten-free corn chips), but two!!!!! I did refrain from buying chocolate as well, but still…..
I haven’t eaten them yet, but I still feel bad! Guilty already. If I was different I would perhaps think of having just a few, but I know I am more likely to binge on the whole two packets. Damn!
