It is my 2-year Sparkversary, and I've become aware of several things that I've gotten a bit misdirected on. It doesn't feel like I've fallen off the proverbial wagon, but just that my healthy two-year track has begun to start making the beginning of what can easily be a U-turn. Yikes! Rather than let that happen, I thought I'd blog about each issue that I need a direction correction on. Each one will begin with this paragraph and lead into the topic of the day.
There is a SP article on this topic,and each time I read it, I smile. I am "addicted" to some very healthy foods. What's wrong with that, right?
Well, this is where that "all or none" aspect of my personality comes into play, as it does with everything in life. As we've heard over and over - MODERATION is the important aspect in all things.
Okay, I've blogged many times and sung the same song about how I had a lifelong metabolism that allowed me to eat whatever in any quantity with no weight gain. Four years or so ago, that changed. Yes, life changes.
But somewhere along the line, with all of the healthier behaviors I've developed, my brain still can't seem to wrap itself around the concept of eating moderation when it comes to things like zucchini, eggplant, berries, watermelon, avocado, etc.
This blog is to remind myself that this is one of my Year 3 goals - moderation when eating healthy food.
Wishing all a fun day.
