Consequences are coming!


Hello everyone,

I am having the normal struggle with getting back on track after Christmas with food :(
I managed okay over the festive period but now I just can't seem to get a grip. I want to eat ( in fact, am eating) chocolate, biscuits, cake, anything really that is not good for me. I know I am doing wrong as I am daintily munching away  ( okay stuffing my chubby chops)  but nothing seems to persuade me to stop.



Today I received a couple of  "gifts" from my beloved to "encourage" me back on to the straight and narrow.

Oh yes my friends, you have quite easily guessed the first :(

A jolly hard spanking followed swiftly on the reading of last night's food diary. Yes folks I really do write down what I eat, even knowing I am being naughty and confessing my sins I can't seem to omit anything.   If he asked me I wouldn't be able to lie, it has never been one of the life skills I have acquired and whilst most of the time he doesn't actually ask I just think what if he did!

  He is a very trusting soul and believes what  he reads. As he works into the night I am up first and as soon as I read the comments he so kindly left :(   I knew what fate had in store for me. He didn't actually write "You are getting a spanking" in case the kids read it but the words "You know what is coming " in capital letters were pretty self explanatory .....


A humdinger of a spanking, legs pinned, implements galore, more wood than you can shake a stick at and  the rosiest most shiny crimson  cheeks I have had for ages, all have encouraged me to at least give it a good go whilst muttering apologies and promises which I am sure I won't be able to keep, much as I try. He didn't keep me waiting either, he practically leapt out of bed raring to go. I think limits had been reached as he reeled off  the list of things I should have stayed away from. Amazingly the scales are only up by a pound but that apparently is a pound too many:(


A bit later on in the day and the postman arrives with a little parcel for me. :)




Yes it is a new journal to start the new year off!! What a sweet present. He had it printed and I am to start writing my food diary and any other misdeeds in here.  Retribution to follow......  


On another subject entirely I was talking to son number 2 the other day, ( this remember is the son who appears to be following in his father's footsteps ). He and his girlfriend are house hunting and one they are viewing has an extra room downstairs, a study maybe or an extra bedroom.

" If we were to buy this one" he says, " I am going to soundproof that room!!!!"

Good grief, I thought don't tell your dad he will want to come and borrow it.

" What for?" I asked quite tentatively.

"So I don't annoy the neighbours with my guitar of course"

Of course,  what else could I have been thinking lol. He is actually a brilliant guitarist ( yes yes I know I am biased but one of my friends heard a disc he had made and asked who it was. She thought it was someone famous!!)


I hope everyone is okay and happy out there, I hope the weather gets better for those of you in snow covered lands. Also I hope that we soon get to hear news from TL and Bucko,  and Esmay and the Duke, the waiting is endless lol.


Lots of love
                   Jan,xxx

  1. Jan,
    You will get back on track and you will probably do it with a sore bottom. Such is the life of a ttwd wife.

  2. Jan, I literally LOL'd at the new food journal - love it! Isn't it a funny thing that we just can't seem to lie to our other half? Good luck in the new year!

    1. Hi Maggie, I love my new book, I just don't want to write in it! I am being good today so far but it is only 10.30 am lol

  3. Hi Jan, I love the new journal! Very sweet of him :) I'm sorry about falling off the wagon, and your poor butt, but you will get back on track. You have done so well over the holiday period.

    Good on you for being honest with the journal. I couldn't lie to Rick or omit anything either. The bit about your son soundproofing a room cracked me up. Hmm, dual purpose room? LoL

    Hugs

    1. Hi Roz, I think he is determined not to let me slide back. I am so much happier with that missing stone and a half I really don't want to put it back on again. When I told hubby about the soundproofing he straightaway said maybe we could nip round and use it!!

  4. As I began reading I was thinking, "I don't remember writing this, but it sure sounds like me." At least till you got to the spanking part. That hasn't happened here yet although I'm vaguely aware it's coming. I don't write things down and I don't think I could make myself be that honest. I think I'd omit things.

    I just love the book he had printed for you - that shows he was really thinking of you. Best of luck.

    1. Hi PK, Isn't it hard whilst all the Christmas goodies are still about. I have no willpower at all. It's a good job he has enough for me :(
      The book is cute, I just don't want the kids to see it so we now have to hide it!

  5. Hi Jan, I am sorry that you struggle with getting back on track at the moment and I can relate so well how difficult this is. I have bouts of ravenous appetite and usually I could go on eating forever, and of course it is not only the healthy things that finally stop the snack attack :( I am not yet doing much sports, so no help from that side yet, but my willingness grows. :)

    I think that you have such a journal and do confess all there is into it is awesome. And even though you do end up with a warmed bottom now and then, what matters so much more is just how much trust your husband has in you, knowing that you write misdeeds down, also how much you trust him so that you can do this and how close you two are. This is wonderful and it is a treasure to be kept (I love this, it is beautiful!).

    … But that you can also see his comments (obviously not always the hopeful sort of comment) can be a downer. I am keeping my fingers crossed that you can keep your fingers away from the biscuit bin!

    When I read about your son’s plan to create a soundproof room I wondered about the reasons, too, and I am with Roz, maybe there is a double purpose?

    hugs

    1. Hi Nina, I have started off better today, but it is only the morning. I feel quite poorly too and i think that that is because i have been eating too much sweet stuff!!
      I think the kids could follow in our footsteps if I am honest but I am definitely not bringing the subject up!
      love Jan,xx

  6. Personally I think that it is great that he can motivate you to eat right. That is not something that has worked well at my house. The comment your son made would have thrown me too. I just wonder what mine know and don't know.

    1. Hi Blondie, I don't think the boys know about the spanking really. My youngest would be mortified to actually know about it even though he is the most similar to us. The oldest lives away and has no idea. If he didn't "help" me I think I would be the size of a house soon

  7. I have faith that you will get back on track with your diet Jan. Love that diary...so very cute. Your son is so funny...ya think he'd tell ya if he wanted that room soundproofed for any other reason? *snicker* Sending lots of positive energy that you get back on track with your food soon. ;)

    Hugs and Blessings...

    1. Hi Cat, the diary id cute. I just don't want it filled with bad comments so I am trying. No he wouldn't tell me but he looked surprised when I asked him why as if I should have already known so music it is then!
      Hope you are okay

  8. Hey Jan,
    It's always hard to get back on the wagon after the holidays.... but hopefully you'll get your groove back soon. And thankfully it's only a pound! Some of us have a bit more to contend with. I do an online food diary - it's really helpful, and to lie is just a waste of time. (I'm sure that your hubby is pleased that you don't lie to him - no matter what)
    Lol - loved the bit about your son - we spanko's will always jump to obvious conclusions when soundproofing is mentioned. ;)
    hugs,
    Cali

    1. Hi Cali, it's two pound today :( I am getting worse. I would like to throw out all the leftover chocolate and biscuits but I know I won't, lol
      I never lie, not to anyone I am sure I would be hopeless at it so it's not worth the risk. I think we would all like a soundproof room, would make life so much easier;)
      love Jan,xx

  9. I could actually do with being helped to get back on the healthy eating track, it's so hard to do alone. At least you have that help even if it hurts.
    I love your new journal and love more the fact that he got it done for you but what I want to know is will you still leave this one where others can see it given that cover (or is this just my mind jumping to obvious conclusions again)

    1. Hi Janey, we have had the discussion about where to leave this one as I don't want the kids to see it but he has to see it when he comes in at night. We have come up with a place they won't go to (we think) and will try that.The trouble is I just don't want to be healthy I want to eat junk food :(( It's my mind that has to change and that is going to be harder for him to manage I reckon

  11. I have no doubt you will be back on track soon thought sounds like it will be with a sore bottom.

    Love your new journal.

  12. Jan, you have me in stitches! Chubby chops indeed! Not much chub there, dear readers!

    Loved your new diary. Does John do orders? I could certainly use one myself. Even Weightwatchers encourage the use of a food diary. They would have a fit if they saw my list.

    I am sure you will soon lose those pesky pounds. Especially with John's help. Smirk.

    1. Hi Ami, Hope Dan got on all right with the scan. Writing things down does help because I feel like a piggy wig if there is too much on the page and I do call a halt at some point. I just feel a bit lost at the moment, the year ahead seems full of endless problems with the oldies and I am comfort eating .

  13. Why is it so hard to begin again...I am struggling as well and am finally starting to get back on track but still not where I was...of course I am only accountable to myself so I must motivate myself as well. I will get there. I know you will too. The journal was a sweet gift. :-) Hugs

  15. Hi Jan,
    I've been struggling..trying to get back on track. I gained some weight over the holidays, and while it was fun my pants are tight lol. I love your new journal, and i love the comments he writes. He is motivating you, and that is so sweet. The soundproofing comment from your son was very funny!

    Hugs

  16. Hi Jennelle, I am trying harder this week, it's so difficult once you have fallen off that wagon. I am aiming for better comments now, so far so good!
    Hope you can get back on track too

  17. Aww Jan! :) It is so tough to stick to eating the right stuff all the time! There are just too many temptations all over the place! Just remember how far you have come when the going gets rough. And try to just look at each day as a new day. So you didn't do it the way you wanted to yesterday? Well, that day is over, today you can. Or if you eat one thing that you wished that you hadn't, try to choose the next thing better. Then the next thing. Well, that is what I have done in the past. It helps. One thing at a time. It's hard and I give you a lot of credit! :)

    That is such a cute diary and I love that John had it made up just for you! So sweet! And good for him for loving you so much that he is sticking to his guns, or I should say his weapons of arse destruction, to help you achieve your goals! I'm sure that you appreciate all that love, though not in a spanking moment, right? LOL! You can do it! Thinking of you! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  18. Hi Katie, i am doing okay this week, last night's comment included a "good girl" so things are heading in the right direction. It is our youngest son's birthday today so we have had breakfast out with him and his girlfriend. Not so good food wise but fun anyway :)
