It’s Labor Day Weekend, and I really wanted to be home. Soaking in the sun at my pool, spending time organizing my life, bonding with my couch…. but I made a commitment to do some volunteer stuff. And, the event just happens to be this weekend.
Anytime I go out of town for personal reasons, I kind of panic. Why?
What am I going to eat???
Most times, there are awfully tempting things lurking about. I knew this would be the case.
For the past 8 years, we’ve spent the weekend helping, laughing, and planning our next meal. We eat when we’re hungry, we snack all day, and we order late night eats (aka Silvermine at 4am – – Because they deliver, why not?) Well, this weekend, let me assure hasn’t been very different.
Yesterday, after feeling like I ate a 1/2 a box of these:
I went to Whole Foods this morning and bought veggie sushi, cherries, cucumbers, peppers, and cauliflower… but I sadly also ate these:
|Just one, I swear|
|A new flavor showed up today… and sigh, I’ve been eating them.|
I think it’s just boredom eating. And maybe convenience, because it’s what’s in front of me. But, it’s disappointing. I ate a lot during the day, and last night, I had a turkey burger for dinner. This is getting bad.
Is it time to go home yet???
I do need to figure out why I do this. If I were home, I’d be munching on heirloom tomatoes and healthy food… but in the presence of junk food, I don’t resist. Good news is that I’m not around junk food too often. Bad news, I apparently have more mental work to do on this.
Greece is looking VERY far away all the sudden.
