Yesterday I had my parents, two Aunts and Uncle over for lunch. Only two of us drank and I think we got through a bottle of champers and a bottle of red over the course of about four hours. After everybody had left, and Josh had gone to play Soccer, I decided to make a few notes for this blog entry on food, red wine and how much is too much? I recalled watching shows on the Crime Channel where the driver had to recite their alphabet to prove they weren't drunk. I'd always wanted to try it and, finally, yesterday, I remembered to give it a go.
Ruby Jane 'pee pee pants' Back! - 14th February 2013
"You could cut the tension with a knife!" Its a strange sensation, when we walk into a room and sense something is not quite right. Or, equally, when someone walks into a room we're already in.
It's the end of January, 2011. Time to realise that that New Year resolution is just not happening. I downloaded an app on my iPhone to track the wonderful downward progress of my weight as I ploughed through new Kinect fitness games I'd gotten for Christmas and munched through protein and salad only diets. And yet, here I am, end of January staring dismally at a graph on my iPhone that has gone steadily up. The only consistent thing I've done this New Year is gain weight! I sit and ponder how this could have happened, whilst eating a leftover bag of M&M's from the weekend movie.
About this blog!
I don't think it’s healthy for people to believe that counsellors and psychologists are perfect. We are people too! To show you that you are not alone in your procrastination, botched diets, lost tempers, problematic behaviours, relationship issues, bad habits, emotional meltdowns and wardrobe tantrums (deep breath) . . . I'll be looking at myself through a pretty candid lens throughout this blog. I'll be working on changing myself for the better and, hopefully, you'll join me for the ride! Not only will you learn the most effective therapeutic techniques but also that although we professionals don't always have our S*** together, it's what we do when it hits the fan that counts!
