I’m not really on a diet, but I needed a more succinct title than, “You Know You’re Aiming to Adapt to a Healthy Lifestyle so that it is Second Nature but Still Struggling with it When…”
Anyway. I know that healthy lifestyles are not about restriction and starving and blah blah blah – I get it. But even though I am working on listening to my body, eating right and exercising like a good little health almond (what? If we say “health nut” why can’t I choose the “nut” I want to be?! hehe), I still can’t help feeling deprived. Old habits die hard as they say and I’ve wanted some fattening, artery clogging, full of HFCS and hydrogenated oils foods lately. Gross, right? I would be ashamed, but, like I’ve said before, I lost my sense of shame once I started writing this blog.
So what have I resorted to? Instead of creating some delectable and healthy treats (look here and here for examples from two new awesome blogs I’m following) – which would be the right thing to do – I’ve decided to start calling my boyfriend by terms of endearment related to the specific foods I’m craving. So I’m still avoiding fattening foods, but maybe not in the most healthy way?
This morning it was “peanut brittle” Last week, “cheesecake.” I’m thinking this afternoon it might be “chocolate cupcake” but we’ll see. I can only imagine what strangers must think when I’m adoringly calling him Pop Tart or something.
See! If you’re feeling a tad psychotic, just remember, there is always a cranky girl who is one step further than you are on the meter.
Can you think of any other “You Know You’re On a Diet When…” examples?
Bye bye my cute little onion rings!
