Take Back Control

All or nothing

I’m one of those all or nothing, obsessive people. I know who I am and prefer to call myself passionate 😉

So 1st January I gave up smoking after more years than is decent and have managed to keep that up for more than 3 months now. As far as I’m concerned, I’m a non smoker now (just wish someone would tell my lizard brain).

From there came the move away from meat. It wasnt a conscious decision, but it pretty much looks like that’s the way we are heading. Man seems to be happy enough to tag along on this journey.

Thought I’d give my kidneys a break and have a month off alcohol while I was at it. I know I drink way too much (I do everything too much) and have been toying with this for a while, so a dodgy tooth and double antibiotics has certainly helped put this one on the map.

My other failing, weakness, silliness? Is spending. I am the worst spendthrift in my city. If there is one X that I like, I will go and buy it in a variety of colours and sizes and materials just for good measure. So much of it never gets used or worn and gets given away it’s scary.

So – April – the month of Discipline.

No alcohol, no meat, no spending unless really necessary (ie food), and just for good measure, why not thrown in some exercise – so starting Yoga and Tai Chi 😉

See – all or nothing 😉 Watch this space.

Day one
