In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Grateful and Guilty.”
Whether it’s a trashy TV show, extra-pulpy fiction, or nutrient-free candy, write a thank-you note to your guiltiest guilty pleasure.
Oh well, There are so many “guilty pleasures” that I honestly do not know where to start !!
Having said that, I guess the worst of them is being addicted to snacks and sweets. I had taken the trouble to understand and stick to a diet and maintain an exercise regime in early 2013. In the space of 6 months I lost almost 13 kgs. It was an achievement as far as I was concerned. And I was proud of it. The dedication and motivation involved, added to the fact that I was happy with the way I looked and felt, made me stop as I reached for the twin culprits. I kept the weight constant for another 6 months.My friends and family often told me they liked the plumper me but I was sure I liked the leaner one!!
But alas good things seldom last and then one thing led to another and now I have happily gained 10kgs of those lost 13! A new place, my hospital being located away from home (that necessitates commuting) a social life that ensured parties at least 3 times a week – whatever the reasons, they are all excuses. I know that if I want, I CAN and if I have to blame someone or something, it is only and only me.
As for thank you, am not sure a weak will deserves a thank you , however much pleasure I have derived from being a snacker and a couch potato.
Ironically this prompt comes on a day when I have decided to restart at least a tiny part of my previous regimen….. Wish me luck ,folks!!
And you have an active, happy weekend !!!
