Enough of a beating! Time for ‘Self-Care’….


Ok – so it’s been weeks, nay months since I last wrote and boy have I eaten whatever I want to and thus the weight has crept on too. I notice that when this happens, I stop taking good care of myself e.g caring how I dress, moisturising after a bath – that kind of thing! (My spell check hates the word ‘moisturise’ – I’m British – DEAL WITH IT!) I don’t know why and the only way I can explain it is that there is some weird need to compartmentalise (spell check again) everything I do…so if i’m eating crap – I become crap.

Someone very wise said to me that if we do not look after a car or give it fuel how can we expect to function? Is it really that simple? that we are all machines?

Now I am not widely practised in self-care – but i’m going to try it……seeing as I am waving my white flag and admitting defeat on ‘my way’ (unlike Frank Sinatra).


How you treat yourself is how you are inviting the world to treat you!

  1. Hi There – I am the last person to give advice but here goes! Yes, I guess we are like machines in so far as we are what we eat. If its not in your flat/ house you can’t eat it.


    • Hello. Thank you for taking the time to reply. Unfortunately it is just not that simple. I won’t make excuses for the way I eat because ultimately there is choice, but this is like an addiction…a problem as little as not having it in the house would go no way to solving the problem but thanks for the advice and good luck on your journey. 🙂
