It’s been a while!
Sorry for the wait. The last week and more has been super busy. I was basically stuck between my actual work at the moment (working as a bicycle courier), getting my balance (going on a 35km hike) and getting ready for my Paris Trip. There I was going to meet friends, take pictures for stock photography and spend a whole day attending a hiring event for a tour company. For the latter I practiced my bicycle fixing skills, learned french and practiced public speaking.
So here we go: Day 13!
Birthdays – the days when your family and friends could become your worst ‘enemies’…
If you don’t let them know what you are doing!
Like me. I started my 60 days without added sugar or chocolate so spontaneously, literally from one day to the next, that I was neither prepared, nor did I think of telling anyone about it.
Indeed only a few days before that sudden change of mind took place I had told my sister (with who I share a flat) flippantly:
‘I do so much physical work, I can handle putting three spoons of sugar in my coffee. Indeed, I need the energy!’
After her being shocked about how much sugar I added.
During these past 60 days I often had the occasion to wish I had bit my tongue back then, because she would often use those very words against me. And that with good intentions, fully believing into what I had said! She would remark to others or to me ‘She/You need to eat a lot of cake/ chocolate to have enough energy’. Each time, the voice in my head went ‘AHHHHHH!’…
But my mouth kept shut, because I was too proud to go back on my words. Had I done so, I could have avoided much temptation along the way.
