Some people do a dry January, some people go on a diet, some people join a gym to get fit. I decided to give up chocolate & facebook for January. Giving up facebook was actually quite easy after the first day or so. It seemed to be a habit that I fell out of just as quickly as I fell in to it. I didn’t really miss it and it seems I didn’t miss much while I was away (everyone was clearly too busy giving up booze to have a good time!)
Chocolate on the other hand was much harder. Which was weird, given that I hadn’t really been eating chocolate until Christmas. But because I’d eaten a lot over the Christmas period I really, really missed it. Really missed it. Like lots and lots. (Am I emphasising this enough?!) And the bad consequence of that was that I ate lots of sweets to compensate. Which means that I put on weight and am finding it really hard to get back into primal eating. Which means that my stomach issues are all over the place and my body is not happy right now.
So. There is a lesson to be learned here…… don’t give up chocolate – ever again!!!
