Just leave it on the plate…

Increasing girth is a thing of worry, therefore I have enacted a regime of 6 AM runs which unfortunately seems to be having little impact. Yes, the problem is one of chocolate and biscuit snacking. That is the result of general frustration with life, the mundane drudgery of it all. As I sit here and type I know the time so I can predict exactly who will walk past my window, who will drive off and what will come on the television. Somehow a piece of Diary Milk makes all that better.

I also blame the children. It’s entirely their fault. They drive me mad forcing me to sneak off into the kitchen for chocolate and sweets and even worse they leave food. Lots of food. And. I cant bear to think of it going to waste. My childhood was full of images of starving Ethiopian children, the production of food leads to global warming and the destruction of our planet. I am filled with guilt about food waste.I am filled with guilt about being fat.

I suppose it might be possible to leave it there, just leave it onto the plate to be scraped into the bin. I suppose this is theoretically possible. I know for sure it is impossible to dish up less stuff as the kids seem to need to have food left over. I dish up less, they just ask for more. The only solution is for me to eat after them, not good for their social skills though. So whats it to be? Life presents strange quandaries at times. Another case of over analysing the situation…

    I&#39;m impressed with the 6am running – I should do that, I&#39;m failing to get to the gym during the week and my waistline is suffering…<br /><br />And yes I probably need to eat less and drink less but its sooooooooooooooooooooo hard

    Into the bin! Always in the bin! I only eat what they physically stick in my mouth. Preferably before they chewed on it. 🙂

    Running is cool – at 6am too. Wow.<br /><br />Being a philosophical type I&#39;m not sure it is any less going to &#39;waste&#39; if by eating it you are putting on weight – in fact it is causing more harm

    6am! Crikey. I do my runs at 7.30pm. I&#39;m awake at 6am but completely unable to move about much at that time. Good luck with it!

    Well done with the running – and if you are worried about the waste get a compost bin or a worm farm and then you can feel good that you aren&#39;t really &quot;wasting&quot; all that food by not eating it.
