There should be no shame in admitting my faults. It is what makes me normal and gives me a purpose to work harder and get stronger. Thus…
I refused to be ashamed of the box of Wheat Thins I polished off at 10:30 last night.
(Yes that is Jesse McCartney. Apparently we have something in common.) (source).
They were not organic, reduced fat, or filled with ingredients I can read, but they sure tasted good going down while I was getting my Snooki on.
I’m not ashamed to admit that my eating did not stop there. I am a work in progress and no one ever said that this journey was going to be easy. It was the first time in a long time that I have felt out of control, and I did not like it.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I woke up with a full on food hangover. Seriously, did you know that can happen? It feels eerily similar to an alcohol hangover, except you remember every last bite that brought you to the point of headache/nauseousness.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I still think I have made progress because I do not feel the need to restrict my food nor eat the smallest number of calories possible today to undo the damage of last night. I am trying to break this vicious cycle, not continue it. And that means life has to carry on as normal.
(Breakfast: Baked aka nuked apple oatmeal with almond butter.)
On the non-food front…
…while my dear friends in Syracuse have to deal with this…
Sometimes the grass really is greener.
I’m not ashamed that I am way too excited that we are getting a new oven today! Ours broke a couple of weeks ago and we had to special order a new unit.
(Mind the blurry photo. My hands were likely shaking in anticipation!)
Chef Bob said it broke from over-roasting broccoli…pshh. I hope the new one knows what’s coming. Expect a ridiculous amount of pictures of roasted things tomorrow.
Finally, I am not ashamed to say that I am hopeful that the situation in Egypt is the breaking point necessary to usher in change for the people there. Everyone has the right to a peaceful existence, and the Egyptian government should support it’s citizens, not suppress them.
Question: What do you refuse to be ashamed of today?
