Sucess sometimes comes in small packages.
And larger packets too.
Just a very quick post to say that there was an uncomfirmed sighting of a novel event reported at a cinema in Bristol tonight. I went to see The Kings Speech (which is most excellent by the way, I can see why it's scooping all the gongs), and as we didn't have much time between work, eating dinner and going to the cinema, I didn't have time to go to the corner shop and buy the bottle of Diet Coke and small pack of Maltesers I'd been intending to take with me. Once at the cinema, I bought my diet soda, but was at a loss as to what snack to have. Not ice-cream - it goes to quickly and I wasn't in the mood, and they only do the share-size packs of sweets. Eventually, I agreed to share Hannah's pack with her with a sense of impending doom (no way was I going to only have half, never mind just the equivalent of a small bag).
But there it was at the end of the film .... a bag that still had sweets in the bottom. And amazingly, I ate far, far less than half of the rest. I am confident that I didn't have any more than the original portion I'd aimed for.
Wonders will never cease - I somehow slowed down and prevented my hand from making the constant meander from bag to mouth.
The rest of the day has gone equally well - I've eaten on points, done a spin class in my lunchbreak, and stayed well away from the tin of Roses chocolates that were bought to the office. I decided that not having any was better, as I'm not good once I get started. But I did enjoy an afternoon cup of chai latte from Starbucks with some of my spare points.
Feeling good about myself.
