Its not even the food that people are funny about, its the alcohol. If I do not have a drink in my hand I get asked so many stupid questions. Good thing is the people who do know me will ask if I am doing another competition.
My question is....
Since when do I have to feel like I need a drink in my hand to be socially accepted?
Lately I feel as if I should be feeling bad for my personal choices of staying healthy and fit. Even though I feel this way, I actually don't feel bad for my choices. I rather live a longer life then dieing of liver failure or a heart attack.
This year has been the year for me to have a few epiphanies about food. I usually have a cheat meal once per week and lately every time I chose something, it did not taste good and was not worth the extra fats, calories and sodium. I would feel angry about eating something that did not taste good. I would put so much effort into thinking of what my next cheat would be because I did not want to waste it on something that did not taste good. I would have another cheat meal and again, same thing! I finally realized to myself that the only foods that tastes good to me is clean and healthy foods.
Clean and healthy foods can be very satisfying and make your mouth happy. I always experiment with foods and recipes to figure out ways to make healthy recipes interesting. This to me is way better than what I was doing before. Not only is my stomach thanking me, but I feel better about it. Food dripping in grease and sodium is not my idea of a good time.
This summer I am planning on more outdoor activities hiking, kayaking, and I want to try rock climbing. These are things that I believe are going to make me enjoy summer more(and lay by the pool of course). I am going to try to convince my friends to do this as well.
You don't need to be drunk off your ass every weekend or shovelling high calorie foods down your throat to have a good time. There are many different things you can do with your life rather then making yourself unhealthy with the bad choices you make, and you can't enjoy life if you are obese, have heart problems or have to inject insulin all the time because you are diabetic.
Everything in moderation, and life will be so much more enjoyable!
