If at first you don’t succeed…

… do you try over and over again?

Or do you take a step back, look at the bigger picture, see if you can spot the issue(s), make adjustments, and then give it another go?

I was reminded this weekend, that one of the definitions of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get a different result. With this is mind, I am scrutinising my weight-loss program following the completion of my Couch to 5K challenge.

I haven’t a clue what to change but I’m doing a ton of research. The trouble is the advice is conflicting, confusing, confounding and other words beginning with ‘con’.

What’s a girl to do? Try all the advice and work out which one works? Stick each piece on a dart board and throw a dart to see which one to try? No idea.


Lucky me… I know someone who specialises in treating eating disorders. I may bend her ear for advice.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone xx

  1. Having an eating disorder sucks so don’t beat yourself up. You may have a secret weapon with you expert friend. I hope you succeed with your challenge. I am finding distraction in the form of art and craft groups and blogging helpful. Also I have started a meditation app but I am only on day 2 so I won’t hold my breath on that one. Breathe in through my nose and out through my mouth maybe….

    1. I’m trying hard not to beat myself up…. meditation is totally cool. I love it. Takes a while to get the mind to stop monkeying around to begin with, but worth keeping at it.
