Best Friend

Wednesday, November 07, 2007

Today I am going to begin a process over again. I know that to make the best choices for me is to be my own best friend. It is not a dig against the 2 best friends I have in real life.

It is about me treating me the way I treat these 2 strong and loving people in my life. I trust them. I lean on them. They survived some of my darkest times with me and I with them.

I have made a handful of friends on line that I feel the same connection with. In fact a comment I made to one of them this morning is what started this particular blog. She can decide what she chooses to share that is not my job.

My job is take every piece of insight I have and can muster to learn how to make the best choices for me. Part of that insight today is that I am not acting like my own best friend. My food choices even when in calorie range are not good choices.

Yesterday was a prime example. I forgot to take my lunch to work. So what did I do I ate a snackable lunch. Not a huge bad choice until I added the candy bar because I was still hungry. Then I came home and wanted a snack. Did I get some furit or a small piece of cheese? No, I ate nuts and cookies and 2 glasses of wine. Not good.

So as I work on this some more, I am going to post some notes about being best friends with myself.

    First thing a best friend would do if I was coming to spend time with her is to make sure there was good food in the house. Now those foods are different for a one time visit and a long stay.

    I need fresh fruits and veggies and more canned things that I really enjoy like asparagus. So I will add those things to my shopping list. I need to have some menus and recipes readily available. I am going to look in some of my cookbooks for things to experiment with for 2 or 1 instead of the family I used them for originally.

    Good Food in the House.
