What Is Wrong With Me?

Missbliss and I have not been too well the last few days but as part of my new years resolutions we went swimming this evening. It was good fun and good exercise. But that isn't the most remarkable thing about today, we came home afterwards and had a salad for tea/dinner (depending on whether you're from the North or South). Yes, that's right, a salad! I've not had salad, on its own since....well...ever really! I enjoyed it too, it was crunchy in all the right places and was followed by an Asian pear which was also scrummy. I've never been this healthy - ever. Perhaps even more shocking than me, Little '5 kit kats' Medic, eating salad and doing exercise is the fact that I've not had a single sweet, crisp, biscuit or any chocolate at all. Not the tiniest bit since New Year's Eve, More than a week! I've been tempted and oh so close - so close that I've had 2 malteasers in my hand having been offered them by an unknowing friend, so close that I've been in a shop with a bag of sweets in my hand only to put them down and run away. I can't quite explain just how difficult this is for me, it might sound pretty easy but it aint.

I even did some revision which completes my 4 realistic resolutions for today, go me, I'm going to go away and do a bit more work too. No, really I am. I promise. Seriously there must be something wrong with me.

My GP placement is even going well, I'm quite enjoying myself. I get my own surgery Monday and Friday morning and afternoons starting this Friday, good for me but not quite so good for the unsuspecting patients. Thursdays are half days because the surgery is closed, Wednesdays have PBL in the afternoon (hey, every silver lining has a cloud) and Tuesdays are study days - hell yeah, 4 day weeks are the way forward!

Good show so far LM, I believe in you (and with missbliss cooking dinner it can't be too hard!!)

Your own clinic! Nervous about it? Or have you done that sort of thing before?
