I realise my diet is a bit crap at the moment. My meals are good as always because they're planned ahead but I keep snacking on rubbish, and once I start I can't stop! My skin has broken out, my belly is bloated and my sleep pattern sucks. I feel disgusting. These are things I never would of noticed before as they were "normal" before I started reducing the processed foods from my diet last year. Once you really start to monitor your diet and understand nutrition, the link is so obvious. Yet here I am munching on handfuls of sugary processed granola... As ashamed as I feel for the crap I'm shoveling down my throat, I think it's only fair that I include it all in this food diary or what would be the bloody point. I'd only be cheating myself by omitting it!

Anyway, I'm addicted to granola. I bought a bag so I could make breakfast for the train this morning (Monday).... I'd finished the bag by Friday. I've nearly finished the 2nd bag which I only bought yesterday!! Never buying it again.
