Facing Food Fears

Hey friends, how’s your Thursday going?

Mine started with the same smashing breakfast I had yesterday.

Once again the semi dried tomatoes were the star.

Then it was off to teach a Body Step class. I love getting new participants because not only is it a little test for me (to cater to all levels, help them out, bring them back for more) it also means that more and more people are choosing to become active by participating in the best (not biased) form of exercise there is- Body Step! Ha.

especially love getting male participants on board and was pleased to find out that he really enjoyed the class after. Just goes to show that Body Step really is for everyone.

Anyways enough of me trying to sell you Body Step haha. I also had my fortnightly visit with my Therapist. Amongst the many things we discussed I also brought up the little ‘Habit or Obsession‘ topic I shared with you all this morning.

From the looks of it, it’s normal and can be harmless. However, he knows (previously more so) how consumed I can be about my food and eating, and he wants me to be wary with the behaviours. He agreed with me and said why not shake things up a bit and see if something stirs.

So I did the unthinkable. I put my nut butters…on…diagonally!

Okay, understatement of the year right? Well for some of us, and for me in the past, this would have been a big issue. Trust me. I remember when my bf put it on horizontally one time and I was not a happy camper. Ridiculous right?

Well I’m happy to say that my feathers went un-ruffled. But this is just a tiny test, I’m going to keep mixing things up and see what thoughts and feelings arise. Maybe change my usual eating times or something? (This is HUGE step though).

On the agenda for the rest of the day is foam rolling, another Body Step class, dinner (I’m thinking it may be a breakfast for dinner type day) and some relaxing. Plus getting a decent start on my next Jodi Picoult novel- Vanishing Acts.

Seriously, what have I been doing with myself? Book reading is so beneficial. My mind is relaxed, as is my body, plus it’s fantastic entertainment.

If I would have known how hooked I get on Jodi Picoult I would have started a Jodi Book Club from the beginning- who’s with me?! Ha.

Oh and I’ve also got some bad news. Jersey Shore Season 5 isn’t out yet and they don’t think it’ll be till February sometime. Oh my, what will I we do.

That’s all for me folks, but before I go remember to enter the Personal Planner Giveaway! You have till next Tuesday 8am my time to enter! Open to anyone.

  • Do you usually stick to one Authors’ books when reading?
  • What’s a ‘food fear’ you could work on?
  • Have you got any other ideas that could test my ‘food fears’?

    I just finished listening to Vanishing Acts in my car. The only “reading” I do is during my long drives. I’m in the middle of Jodi’s “Sing Me Home.” Have you read her, “Nineteen Minutes?” It’s verrrry good! Crazy twist at the end!

      That’s so cool! I’ve never listened to an audio book before. I’m still at the beginning of Vanishing Acts and loving it so far. Yes, I read that- with the boy Peter who shoots people? Yes! I reckon haha. I’ve also read her: The Pact (my favourite! listen to it asap), House Rules and Perfect Match.
