Piggy Now, Perky Later

January: the time for exercise, detox and healthy eating.

But I honestly don't know why I thought January would be a good month to stop drinking wine and scoffing crisps. I must have been deranged. January is an odious month and all I can do is try to mask its beastliness by ... well ... drinking wine and scoffing crisps as I wait for it all to be over.

I submitted my tax return today (slightly less hideous than expected) and I cleaned the bathroom (far more hideous than expected) so I have achieved something today, even if it's not healthy eating.

But never mind, payday will soon be here and soon after that the sun will shine and the clocks will change and I can wear sunglasses and then I expect I'll feel all perky and sprightly and decide to spring clean my insides with gallons of water and barrels of fresh veg. Until then, oink.


  1. Yes, you are right. This cold, boring weather is not the time to deprive ourselves of comfort food. I am finding that too.Crisps and cheese are my downfall. Chocolate too.

    Won't it be good when the Spring arrives? Everything will seem better then. Maybe dieting will be easier. Cleaning the house might be too. Am I deluding myself?

  2. Love sunglasses. They hide a multitude of sins:-)

    Spring can't come soon enough. Then we can start on the fruit etc.

    Oink oink.

  3. I am on a campaign to lose some wight - 1/3 way there - lost 1 stone, 2 to go! Yes - water I need to drink more.

  4. I succumbed to crisps in the supermarket this afternoon, but this cold weather is not the time to wave a lettuce leaf about!

  5. I completely agree. Giving up everything I enjoy in January is a complete disaster Lx

  6. I am with you- why do people diet in January when it is so damned depressing, cold and long. This is the first January I haven't needed to lose weight- it's a miracle. I love it when February finally comes...
