There are cupcakes sitting in the trash. Right on top.
They are "barely" past their prime. Even though I had to f-o-r-c-e my DH to toss out boxes of Uncle Ben's Mexican Fiesta rice that we moved with (6 YEARS ago!!!), he tossed a box of cupcakes in the trash, stamped with last week's date.
Did you hear me? CUPCAKES!!!! and wait, what did I do? I looked in the trash, thought about it for a nanosecond, and realized, today has been my perfect day. I made absolutely perfect freaking food choices. I ate freaking vegetables. I drank my water. I had a salad for lunch. ME. I did that. I am also the same girl (ok woman) who did not remove the box from the trash or the sealed .... cupcakes ... inside. I just left them there, and walked away, smiling....
Why, smiling? Because I am not the same person (today) that would have removed that box, sliced into the packaging, eaten 3 packs in a blink, and not really even savored them. It would have been a scarfing.
Today is different. Today, I am a person who cares. Today I am a woman who respects herself. Today, I am a woman brimming with confidence.
TODAY, I am the person who left them in the trash.
