I'm standing on the tracks of an oncoming train.....

Monday, April 14, 2014

DH & I are on the last leg of our " brutal-weather escape" trip. After many weeks of home-cooked meals, exercising as much as dr. allowed, avoiding the fun touristy culinary spots, our brains/hearts seem to "know" that Paradise will soon be a distant memory. Soon we'll return to our "Sat. lunch out" routine.
The bad part is we have enough time remaining to do some really serious damage to all the good work done in the last 2 months! NOOOOOO!

The last piece of "fun" seems to be trying all the unique, outstanding dining opportunities --and they're NOT famous for their salads! I was successfully ignoring, with no problem-o, all the temptations. Did you notice the past tense in that last sentence? "WAS". Where did all that discipline go?

Perhaps the key is to drill into my brain that this is NOT my last chance at eating well. Great food TRULY IS available at home...even if I have to drive 100 miles one way to get it. I can get it...I don't have to eat it all NOW or never.

Your suggestions (besides shouting"Grow Up, Woman!" ) are welcome! I think you've already helped me see how self-destructive this is. Action, not words, that's what I need.

    I don't know what to say....I think there is a time and place for everything.

    If I try to be overly strict with my eating, I start to feel sorry for myself. On the other hand, I don't like feeling like I'm not caring for my body when I eat something I consider "bad".

    Lately, what has been working for me is to take a bite or two (or three) of the "bad" foods when I feel like I want them, but stopping when I find I'm not really savoring/enjoying the food. If I'm not really getting true enjoyment out of it, it's just not worth it to me to eat any more of it.

    I don't know if that helps any. I think we each have to find our own way.

    Moderation is your key word....::::let the fellowship be major, and the consuming of food take a minor place in your last special occasions.
    ENJOY the unusual cuisine! emoticon Just be mindful that it is, after all - simply just food....which in turn is fuel.

    Have a grand time, and I hope you enjoy any food your heart desires...mindfully.

    Have fun! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Nothing is not out of your life in moderation once in a while Then easier not to go overboard
