Who wants to be good ALL the time?

Friday, January 08, 2010

To everyone who enjoys eating TOTALLY healthy and is not tempted by sweets and such, I am a little more than dubious.

For the rest of us that find eating sensibly ALL the time, it is challenging to say the least.

Sure I enjoy eating healthy. I shop at Trader Joe's. They have a TON of healthy food. They also have lots of great food that is fattening. I enjoy shopping there because it makes eating healthy enjoyable. It's not a chore. I got several things yesterday that look delicious and are quite healthy. One of my favorites is Saucy Scallops with mushrooms and peas. I actually bought extra peas to put in it. I probably won't have that this evening though because I bought the best looking chicken breasts stuffed with feta and mozzarella cheese.

When I was going through the check out line the clerk asked me where the sugar and candy was? I just said, yea I know. He then replied, "Wow, you eat healthy!" I laughed and said, yea I know again...

Now all I have to do is quiet that monster in my head that is screaming SWEETS NOW! ME WANT SWEETS!

    It is easier to stay away from the sweets once you cut out all or mostly all sugars from your diet. It has made a huge difference in my life. I had some yesterday with my son when we were out to eat, but was very happy that it did not seem to effect me. I later had only an apple to eat. That is quite a lifestyle change for me. I've never had that happen in my life before!!!

    I love Trader Joes also. The things you bought sound yummy. Too funny that the clerk asked you where the sweets are. I've never had that happen to me. Congratulations on a very successful shopping trip. I'm sorry to hear the Sweets Monster has taken up residence :) I hope it moves on soon. But don't send it my way. I just got rid of it. lol

    Good job! That sounds delicious. I keep a bar of 85% cocoa and a variety of teas to staisfy my sweet tooth on those kinds of doesn't always work though, lol. Especially not when there is free candy at my office all the time! emoticon

    I'm proud of you! Yesterday, I dropped off my holiday film at Walmart and bought a large Hershey's with almonds bar at the checkout and ate it all in one sitting. Very nice. Lol. So much for eating healthy.
