Ordered Chinese and did not overeat, watching Eat Pray Love

Friday, September 21, 2012

There's a part in the movie when the woman is in Italy where she's eating pizza with some friends she had, and the Swedish girl doesn't want to eat more because they've both developed 'muffin tops'. The main character says how she doesn't want to count every calorie and have guilt anymore.

I think it's good not to have guilt, and I don't do it solely on calories. I allow myself my favorite foods in moderation, like Chinese rice paper rolls and veggie chow mien tonight. I used to overeat on Chinese food, now I was smart. I even had a Cherry Coke because I love the flavor. I don't overdo it. I just had one. I know lots of people say soda is off limits, but I try to allow myself my favorites without overdoing it. That's about all I can say. My favorite soda is Sprite or 7up, but I had the Cherry Coke tonight just ... I dunno to have something.

Tomorrow is the air show, and I have to be good with the vendors. It's about the planes, anyway, not the food.
