As I write this, I‚Äôm currently in the midst of a food coma and lodged in the corner of a sofa with no plan to move anytime soon. I have a feeling I‚Äôm not alone.
Why do we do it to ourselves?! Every festive season I promise myself to not over indulge, to show some sort of self-control,¬†¬†a hint of willpower‚Ä¶ but alas that goes out the window as soon as I hear the Pringles lid pop and the tempting rattle of the Quality Street tin. My brother’s girlfriend baked the above cupcakes and my weakness is baked camembert (I’ve been known to eat a whole one in just one sitting).
Next week, I‚Äôll be seeking aid from Soulmate Food who do a brilliant 3 day juicing plan and Honestly Healthy run by my friend Natasha who creates delicious AND healthy meals. In Ireland I‚Äôm going to try out ‚ÄėPure Green Juice‚Äô‚Ä¶ BUT¬†that‚Äôs NEXT week. For now, I‚Äôm taking every opportunity to get into the spirit of Christmas and eating until it hurts.
I‚Äôve been lucky that¬†the bad weather didn‚Äôt affect my travels home too much and reveling in wrapping up in layers of coats, scarfs and earmuffs.
At the moment my current must haves are this Military Long Coat with leather sleeves from Maje, Ash biker boots and my favourite earmuffs from Topshop.
