I'm sneaking up on my Animal Brain with my methods of weight loss so that it does not become aware of my plans.
Believe me, there is something lurking in my head that turns on a " you're absolutely starving" switch.
I can lose weight up to the 20 kilo mark and then POW! Total hunger.
I don't usually feel hunger but when this kicks in it is horrendous. I'm in the fridge and cupboards looking for food. I would probably eat cardboard if it was flavoured. The hunger is unbelievable. I crave for crunchy chewy food and have been known to eat a 500gr tub of Crunchy Peanut Butter at one sitting. Cat food looks good! I can drink water till it's coming out my ears. I can exercise to get my mind off it but all to no avail.
This disgusts me.
So....... this time it is slow and steady and eat small amounts.
I try to stick with the Food Combining way of eating. That way I don't have to worry if I run out of saladings. I can always have a potato zapped in the microwave with butter.
I've got this under control and will be catching that ball and running with it.
The avocados are ripening. There will be a glut in about 2 weeks. Do I behave myself and have 1 a day or do I enjoy this small window of opportunity?
I asked the partner, I'll call him Clive, if he would chainsaw one of the avo trees to a manageable level. What's the use of having fruit that you have no chance of reaching? The tree will regrow and I can then keep it to a decent height.
|From another tree. Grown from seeds.|
This he eventually got around to after a little nag. So,
|That's me carrying Clive!|
Anyway..... He didn't... after being reminded gently a few times so when I went yesterday to do it my self [ shades of The Little Red Hen ] a lot had fallen and been eaten by the scrub turkeys.
I got about 8 from the branches that were OK. All up what was lost would amount to around 30 fruit and that would be the amount that I planned to give away. AND I have the mites even though I sprayed my self with Bushman's repellent. I was / am cranky.
Why the fuck do I have to keep asking ?
I'm seriously thinking of buying a little chainsaw for ME! There are rubbish trees that have to be cut before they get too large that are no good for anything.
YEAH RIGHT ! I'm too old for this crap.
You know, I think I will just have an anonymous blog so I can whine and bitch to my hearts content with no repercussions.
He's educated now but he used to use the word 'I' when it should have been 'we' and 'we' when it should have been Lydia when talking about things accomplished. Bad character flaw happening there.
I'm too old for this crap.
