Owning up to pasta and not apologizing

Thursday, August 23, 2012

We had a group luncheon today. Our postdoc from Napoli, Italy is leaving soon so she brought in homemade pasta carbonara and tiramisu. I had giant first and second helpings and had completely used up my calories for the day by 12:30pm. And I'm not feeling guilty about it! Yes, my stomach felt stretched a little too thin this afternoon. Yes, I'm going to try to squeeze in an extra run this weekend. But seriously, how often is someone from Naples going to serve you fresh macaroni with homemade carbonara followed by dessert? emoticon

    I like your attitude! You're totally right - it's probably not often you're going to get to have a food experience like that. It's nice to hear you enjoyed it. By the way, I'm also a Ph.D. student - woo grad school! (except for the stress eating part, right?)

    I wouldn't worry about it at all. A little bit of something you like is good for you from time to time ;)

    Hooray for you! I can identify! Today I splurged and overate, but I don't feel either guilty or fearful. It doesn't mean I have to overeat tomorrow. I really enjoyed what I ate. Thanks for this post.

    I agree - sometimes you want the splurge. I don't think deprivation is going to make anyone succeed on this journey.
