Twin Burger

A confession

Twin Burgers

The duplicity of ease means it’s easy for me to get two of everything.

I don’t need to lie about it, I just pick it up and buy it.

Into the freezer, it goes and although it’s vegan friendly, I know I still succumb to my greedy self. Perpendicular to what my mind is trying to orchestrate!

Earlier today, I prepared two burgers – twin burgers if you wish to understand. The visualisation was a slice of seeded bread, covered with plant-based butter, vegan-friendly ΒΌ lb burger, a slice of Violife cheese, cracked black pepper and tomato ketchup. Times TWO.

I finished the first one, and I knew I was full.

My hunger had been satisfied; my thirst had been quenched. Yet I ate its twin and ignored the messages, ‘Unique, you’re full! Save it for later!’

Once I had finished the second burger, I felt awful. Not because it was unhealthy but because I ate more, even though I was aware I was full.

I’m not sure if it’s because we’re going through this lockdown, but I know for sure I wasn’t hungry.

I think today is a day I’m feeling blue – for a variety of reasons.

  • Isolation
  • Social Distancing
  • Tired of baking banana loafs

I’ve decided not to dwell on my actions earlier; I just felt I should write it down. My journey isn’t easy going, and I face challenges from time to time. As I’m sure, you all do too.

Part of this is about having open conversations and recording my honest feelings about things that occur along the way.

What I’ll take away from this is that I’ll only cook one burger next time. And I’ll try to draw upon the positive aspects of Social Distancing.

Anyway, I hope you are all doing well during this weird time in our lives. Stay strong and stay in touch with loved ones.

  1. These strange times are affecting me in unusual ways too. We’ll get through it, this isolation won’t be forever πŸ™‚.
    You’ve done so well with what you set out to achieve, this one slip up doesn’t change your success. And as you say, it’s given you a chance to learn from it, so actually, in the grand scheme of things, it’s a positive.
    Stay safe πŸ’–

    1. Aww, thank you for such kind words. I’ve been trying to get out each day for a walk and to have some sense of normalcy in my life.

      Another 3 more weeks! I know it’s for a good cause and to help save humanity, but I’m looking forward to seeing family and friends again soon. πŸ’—
