Stress Skipping

It is not that I don't enjoy stuffing myself with crisps and biscuits and cakes and sweets because I do, no I don't, yes I do, no I don't


Stressed? I used to smoke
Stressed? I now reach for sugar (in pastry form for added fat)
Stressed? I'm going to start skipping (meals ha ha! Only joking...I can't for a start...)

Blogging, for example. Today, case in point. I want (want stiggers?) to talk about benefits. My response in the face of something so difficult used to be to smoke and smoke and smoke here at my computer. Now, it's to..crikey, anything, to stall the inevitable... The upshot though is that I'm putting on weight and it's not funny because I'm growing out of my clothes.

So, I found the rope that I bought, oooh, pre-son. I never use it. Always mean to of course. To hang myself with heh heh, only kidding!!!

I've done 50 skips already this morning on my balcony (I tripped three times and was knackered by the end).
In a minute, if I am so inclined to eat I will do 50 more.
The advantage is that I drink water afterwards and I do need to drink more water, and not with a teabag dash of milk and two sugars.
Maybe start to drink Green Tea.
Yes, I advised you to do that and haven't been doing it myself....

Anyway, worth a shot isn't it
If it rains, well 50 sit ups!
If I don't like the thought of any of that, I'll just have to learn to relax
Breathe in
Breathe out
And perhaps choose more wisely what to write about....

Stress skipping sounds like a good idea. Weight gain because of stress is pretty I think that your plan of skipping is a good idea.

Yes thanks, just wish I hadn't blown my own advice this afternoon by eating a whole pack of drumstick lollies... My son very cross for not sharing....
May go out again now, another 50 where I'd usually have a guilt cig!

Ack...but you know that there's probably not a great deal of calories in drumstick lollies.

I'm not really a calorie counter, well, not at all infact...I'm more whatever's contained in what I'm scoffing (saturated fats and sugar oh yum!) Drumstick lollies are probably killers on my teeth but thanks for taking the edge off all those guilt and shame feelings...!
