why do I end up eating rubbish?
Writing this is a must. Why do I constantly gravitate towards terrible eating habits? Given the choice, I usually make poor judgements about what to eat and how much of it to have. Enormous portion sizes, snacks, filling the freezer with junk food...
It's not that I can claim ignorance because I know exactly how fatty and sugary all these processed foods are, it's more just that these are things that in my head seem like tastier things to eat. We usually don't buy biscuits or cakes or chocolate, simply because I'll munch my way through them in no time at all.
Weekends and holidays are usually the worst time when regular good habits all but completely evaporate. All progress made during the rest of the time is quickly reversed (and then some) and it's pretty disheartening when you realise how long it takes to make any progress at all.

The question I have is why do I want to eat all the rubbish, when I know it's going to make me feel disappointed afterwards. I'm sitting here after a fortnight of excesses and wondering why this keeps happening. My usual idea of healthy eating isn't too strict, too restrictive, it's not celery and lettuce leaves for every meal.

I'm left meal planning week by week (as always) and hoping that my willpower will last me a good bit longer this time.
