Achieving “the middle way” comes with clear thoughts

buddhism, health

I’ve learnt how to achieve the middle way through dieting. To love and indulge when allowed. I.e weekends and to always have determination when it comes Monday.

The tricky thing I faced sunday was knowing I was out monday, today, eating and drinking tasty food. Today I learned to relax on this bank holiday Monday. It’s hard for me sometimes, I’ve had more than 2 bad days which is not what I do. It’s 2 days-max and back to the grind. But you can’t pass up a day like this heatwave and not drink some naughty cocktails and well, salad would be nice but if your gunna go bad just go all out.

I’m happy to get stuck in to some rubbish but sometimes, I can feel like such a failure after and start observing my body like I’ve put on a stone. I can be so hard on myself and that’s not the way to be, especially when it’s not something I do all the time. I deserve to feel guilt free during this long weekend.

To indulge in some bad food and to let myself feel happy and deserving of it, but also, to know and be determined to get back on my diet.

Our day:

Me and my boyfriend went to Cardiff bay. It’s a place by the docks and so many boats go in and out, so it’s nice to see and always nice to walk around the harbour and watch the world go by.

It was Ben’s last day of the long weekend before he goes back to work so we treated ourselves!

Two pina coladas, and some beers for him

Pizza express meals!
