This is just a random conversation I had with my longtime boyfriend who is 6'ft and weighs MAYBE 175. He eats "whatever" without gaining weight ! UGH!!
Yesterday we drove past a well known breakfast restaurant chain who was offering all you can eat pancakes for a real cheap price.
My boyfriend commented on how we should go one morning .
I looked at him and said, " Really? It doesn't matter if its 99 cents its junk and we're not eating that". He said "yeah but it tastes good!" then he went on to describe adding blueberries (as if this would somehow dramatically shift the nutritional value of the pancakes) Logic ?
Then I reminded him of all the nutritious food we do eat that tastes good that doesn't require a drowning in artificially flavored syrups and that you would actually have to CHEW rather than just slide down your throat.
No reply. (He may have been thinking what a buzz kill) But, I think I actually won that round.
Anyway, my point is, in another time, I would have bought into that "deal" and been more than willing to join him for a pancake slammin contest (Im very competative-lol)
But Im kind of proud of myself because this time the idea didn't even phase me and I've actually gotten good at looking at food for the nutritional value and as fuel for my workouts. (Sounds boring but its not)
Its truly not worth it to me to eat that, no matter how cheap it is.
My goal this month is to continue to live and learn a healthier lifestyle, eating good real food and to lose 13 lbs.
I don't see where pancakes fit into that plan and I don't subscribe to the everything in moderation theory. Ive read enough data on the hormone insulin to throw that idea out the window.
Wishing all who read this great success in your JUNE GOALS! If you don't have a goal this month make ONE or a few and go for it!
Please feel free to share your goals and ideas with me. I love to read them !
