27 lighters!!!

Today is a beautiful day. The breeze is so fresh and the sky is perfectly clear. It's not hard to get out and about on a day like today and incidental exercise is quite easy. I went for a walk to my local farmers markets and bought some beautiful organic fruit and veg. As soon as I got home I set out to make myself a delicious sandwich.

Delicious Ham salad sandwich
1 tablespoon ripe Avocado
1 slice lean ham
4 slices heirloom tomatoes
1 cup mixed lettuce
1 slice Weight Watchers cheese
1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
2 slices Bergen Grainy wholemeal bread.

Food like this is so appetising, it just takes a moment longer to prepare. I realised today that preparing makes the ceremony of eating that much more enjoyable. The research task for myself today should be unconscious eatting, I think this is where my problem lies. The ritual of making something delicious to eat (and even taking a photo) will surely help me on the road to recovery.

On another note I did some spring cleaning today and scrubbed my unit from top to bottom (not hard as unit is only v small one bedder) Feels so great having a clean unit and obviously we all know what they say clean home = clean mind.... or something like that anyway. When I was cleaning up I found... wait for it....27 lighters!!!!!! It may be hard to believe but it is true. So not only was I smoking and wasting money on cigarettes it seems I was also spending my money on lighters. Oops just had a thought that maybe they are all the lighters I have stolen from my friends over the years.... sorry. Well no more hoarding lighters, and no more stealing lighters either. I have kept one lighter in the top drawer near the candles and the others..... well would you like some for your candles???
