Since my recent diagnosis and my conversion to healthier eating, I have become slightly obsessed with how much rubbish food dominates our lives! Go into a supermarket and you're faced with racks of special offers - bags of cheap donuts, cookies, sweets, chocolate, crisps. And when I went to the Locality conference in Liverpool this week, I was greeted with plates and plates of huge cookies along with the teas and coffees and later on they served a choice of bacon or sausages in soft white rolls! Nothing at all I could eat, and it was only on my way home when I managed to dive into M&S Food at the station and grab a banana and some carrot sticks with houmus. Would it hurt to serve some fruit along with the cookies or even some wholemeal toast?

I am so fed up with people posting photos of their food on Facebook or instagram. I don't care if you're doing whole30 or slimming world or just some made up diet of your own. Food pics unless done by a professional just generally look disgusting and anyway who cares??? I just saw a post on a Facebook friends status that looked like it had been thrown up by a dog! Great way to start your day.

Well, I did it, one month without shopping apart from a couple of support things for my sports injuries. It has been an interesting experience. I am glad I was able to do it. I think it has taught me a lot of my shopping is impulse driven. If I can't buy it at once the urge goes away surprisingly fast. I think shopping is addictive behaviour for me in that I like the buzz of buying stuff more than I value the stuff itself. In the same time period I have given up sugar and processed foods, had hypnotherapy for anxiety and taken up yoga. It has been an interesting and rewarding few weeks.

It's been quite a week. Along with the no-shopping diet i have been on a 5 day detox which was very tough. I literally could not climb the stairs. However I feel so much better now. I am so addicted to sweet and carb heavy foods I had to do something to break the cycle. So apart from food and birthday presents for phil I have bought nothing. I also started my hypnotherapy. What a strange experience. I already feel different. Very strange!

Popped into Liverpool yesterday to see the giants and managed not to pop into any shops! AT some point today I get to buy food in Morrisons but will attempt to make sure no little non food extras slip into the basket!! I am also going back on my 5 day detox diet as am feeling so rubbish lately. Hope that goes ok too.

I have decided to set myself a challenge - a month long spending diet. I fear I am becoming addicted to buying stuff for emotional comfort! We aren't talking cars here or diamonds but things like a nice tube of hand cream when I already have enough or yet another lipgloss or nail varnish is all adding up.... Let's see how i cope....!
