It’s way too late and I am way too tired to write a coherent post. But I feel the need for confession. I am usually way beyond tired and way beyond reason after work. But today…several things added up to me being VERY UNHAPPY on my way home. So of course, I thought, I’ll eat something bad. That’ll show ‘them.’ Honestly, I really don’t even know who ‘them’ is. The only funny thing in this sad tale is that little by little I”ve been weaning the ‘bad’ stuff out of my house, and it was hard to find something ‘bad.’ But I managed. I remembered the leftover Christmas cookies. And I chomped down quite a few of them, and then threw the rest away.
While I was doing that I read my favorite blogs–kinda like the olden days when I would have a brownie and a classic coke while reading my Shape magazine. And all over blog land I read about people struggling, and even being extremely hungry. And some people encouraging others to make good choices. Its exhausting and tiring being us, isn’t it? Poor us, having food on every corner tempting us, having a tv set in every room showing us food commercials, having enough money even in this economy to be able to gorge ourselves on the ‘dollar menu.’ Poor us. We should all move to India.
(I just watched a documentary with two excellent speeches by Mother Teresa.)
Just too tired to link to all I should, but the most excellent post by Dietgirl is a must-read. And my friend Jill started a new ‘Ask the Pear’ feature, and has some GREAT healthy food ideas (too bad I forgot them 1/2 hour ago.)
