I am sitting on the couch right now, think of watermelon. I would live to have some of it's yummy deliciousness, but if I do that, then I won't have any for my lunch tomorrow. Plus, I am almost at my calorie limit, and don't really require any more food. I don't NEED it I WANT is and there is a big difference. I am not hungry, so why should I eat? I don't need to eat, so there is no sense in eating. Yes, it is only a little bit of watermelon, but when you are trying to learn how to "eat to live" and not "live to eat" it is a very important lesson to be learned. It doesn't matter if it is watermelon or potato chips, eating just to eat is a no-no. We don't eat because we are bored. We don't eat because we are sad. We eat to fuel our bodies.
It is ok to enjoy the fuel that you consume. I am going to chose wisely however. If I am going to eat something, I am going to make sure it is the best of something (IMO at least). If I want pizza, I will have pizza, but I will make sure it is a good pizza, and I will enjoy it in moderation with a large salad.
Likewise if I chose to drink a beer. I am not going to waste the calories on a Bud Light that I don't even like. I am going to have a Blue Moon, or Sam Adams, because if I am going to have a beer, it is going to be a great beer.
In other news, my boyfriend re-arranged the electronic components so the cat can't get behind the tv and unplug stuff... well, he figured out how to get back there. Yay Leroy for being a smart kitty kitty. He is going to a new vet on Tuesday since his current vet won't listen to me. I am hoping I get a proper diagnosis and treatment for my baby kitty.
I think that is all for now
