Hurricane Isaac

Sunday, September 02, 2012

It is virtually impossible to eat completely sensibly when you're on lockdown due to a hurricane. When your power goes out, all you have to turn to are foods that don't require refridgeration, which, trust me, doesn't leave you healthy options at all. But my fiance and I did our best. We stocked up on bananas, peanut butter, apples, and some good, healthy cereals, ate beans for dinner a couple of nights, but in our no-electricity boredom without being able to really go outside, we mindlessly snacked also on cheese and crackers, sometimes candy, and drank a good amount of alcohol.
I guess I could say I didn't do soo bad through the storm, but I definitely could have done better. I know I could have, because now that the storm is over, I feel bloated and icky but because of that, I know I'm ready to get back on track!

    I know what you mean! I rode out the storm with family, who think "dinner" is cheese and crackers with their cocktails. But the rest of my life isn't about how I eat when I'm going through a hurricane, it's about how I eat when I'm NOT going through a hurricane. Now that I'm getting back to my routine I'm feeling better, and life feels more normal. Electricity is a wonderful thing!
