Here I sit, having my coffee, looking out the window. It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day. I am supposed to go school shopping today. Hopefully it’s a quick trip since I am not into shopping. When I get home at 2 I am going to have to find something to do, so I don’t get bored and over eat. I am trying to so hard to just have a normal eating habit. I just want to eat healthy foods and have a treat a couple of times a week without it sending me into weeks, or even months of eating unhealthy. Eating unhealthy makes me feel terrible, physically and mentally. I am seriously just after happiness. Being thin is not going to make me happy. Furthermore, happiness is not an end all. Being happy is a journey. It is something we strive for daily. There is not one thing that I can think of that will make me happy for life. I believe that there are things that will make me happy, but at the same time, I believe that happiness is a choice. It is my choice.
So here’s a thought. Last night I over ate. I was feeling a little bad about it. However, now that I think about it. I overate healthy food. I had a cup and a half of sugar-free chocolate pudding and 2 bananas which probably equaled about 500 calories. Believe me when I was done I thought I might explode. If I were eating unhealthy, processed foods, I would have consumed proportionately the same amount of food with ten times the calories. That’s the beauty of eating better quality foods. You can eat so much more with a lot less damage. It amazes me that a thousand calories of healthy food will fill a small table, but a thousand calories of processed foods will fit a small plate. Since I love to eat. I suppose I should go the healthy route lol. It completely amazes me how yummy my healthy meals are. The other day I had a meatball sub with the works and it was amazing. Of coarse instead of having the unhealthy version. I made my meatballs with ground turkey, used fat-free cheddar and a cauliflower wrap instead of bread. My healthy version had approximately 300 calories, while the unhealthy version would have been double that. I adore living healthy. I forgot how good it feels to eat and feel energized instead of eating and needing a nap.
It’s been such a great day. I did make it shopping, however, I didn’t get everything I needed so I’ll be doing that again very soon. My darling will be home in less than a half hour. I can’t wait! It’s going to be a nice relaxing evening. I have a lasagna in the oven for the family. Not sure what I am going to have yet but whatever it is I am sure it will be de-licious.
Well I am off for the day! Take care and share a smile 🙂
