I need to think before I open my mouth.
Thursday, July 16, 2009
I always thought this applied to the words that come out of my mouth but the other day I overheard a lady say this just as I was opening up to take a bite. Of cake, no less. She was in the booth behind us and had been talking about something she had said that had been taken the wrong way but it made me stop and think. It was just one of those OMG moments and I decided I also need to think before I open my mouth. I need to think about the food that's going in, whether or not I really need what I am putting in. Is it something good for me that will feed my body? Am I even really hungry or am I just eating cause it's there, cause everyone else is haveing something? Do I really want to spend my calories on it? I am going to try to ask myself these questions before I order from now on.
