Mid-week confessions 2

I did this once, and then never again. But in the absence of anything else to talk about, it feels like a good time for the second post in this series. Today, I confess…

  • Most days I don’t eat breakfast at home because I would rather spend extra time in bed. Instead, I take a yoghurt to eat at work.
  • By yoghurt I mean the kind that comes with caramel and little pieces of chocolate to stir in… the ones that come in Lion, Mars and Twix varieties. Or I just take a chocolate pudding. A perfectly healthy, balance breakfast… or not.
  • Some days all I feel like eating for dinner is McCain’s Smiley Faces and chicken nuggets. Yes, I’m in my 30s…

    You're never too old for a smiley dinner!
    You’re never too old for a smiley dinner!
  • If I open a bar of chocolate, I can’t stop eating until it’s gone. All 100g of it…
  • Moving on from food… I already have a wish list of books I plan to buy for my future children. As in the children that aren’t even conceived yet! There’s nothing wrong with thinking ahead, right?
  • On a related note, ordering books via Amazon is far too easy. Must. Stop. Clicking… (GoodReads is not helping my book obsession either.)
  • Recently I went to buy a new pair of trainers (which I need) and came out with a handbag (which I did not). The bag was on sale, though so it could have been worse…

Phew. Now that I’ve got that off my chest, is there anything you would like to confess?

  1. Hey, there’s milk in those yogurts and pudding as well. It can’t be less healthy than the sugary cereal most kids grow up eating (at least in the U.S.). I often resist opening a candy bar for the same reason – If it’s there and open, that’s just too much temptation. I can confess that I have spent more time reading and napping this week than doing anything productive.
    January is a good time for confessions. Keeping ourselves honest…

    1. My old work canteen used to offer bacon or sausage sandwiches for much less than the healthier option of yoghurt/fruit/muesli combo. Fortunately I moved to Geneva where they have no understanding of bacon. Fortunately for my waistline. Not fortunately for my mental well-being which has suffered severe emotional trauma from bacon deprivation and causes me to eat obscene amounts every time I go back to the UK!

  2. My Goodreads list is growing and growing and then I cannot stop myself from buying books. I need to learn how to stop myself. πŸ™‚ And I already bought books for my future child so don’t feel bad about having a wishlist. πŸ™‚

    1. Sometimes I do have fruit yoghurt. When I was counting calories, I always had low-fat fruit yoghurts. Today I had a vanilla yoghurt with some kind of added cultures. Plain natural yoghurt would be too boring πŸ˜‰

  3. I was in my pjs having a nap by 5.30pm and am now on glass number 2 of wine. Since I’ve lost my right to confess at church, I may as well use you πŸ˜‰
    And I can’t possibly judge your eating habits. I’m a walking pizza. πŸ˜‰

    1. A 5:30 p.m. nap sounds like bliss! Unfortunately if I did that I’d never get to sleep when it was actually bed time and spend the next day trying to keep my eyes open at work!

      Jan was out last night (choir practice), so I was in my PJs by 7:30 and tea was a large packet of crisps and a cup of warm almond milk. At least the milk was healthy, right? πŸ˜‰

  4. dont worry too much about the chocolate bar. I sometimes even eat the 200g milka bar in one setting and thats awefull… but germna chocolate is the best so I do have an excuse

  5. I’d never say no to smiles! I confess to getting so annoyed at my job on Friday that I spent the whole afternoon on the internet instead of doing any work and purposely not answering my emails.
