You can't just pick

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Years ago there was a commercial for a broadway show where the wife says "I'll just pick" & then proceeds to suck up all the husband's pasta.

I can't just pick; it is definitely one of those habits that trips me up.

And I have been picking. No doubt TOM accounts for some of that. And the fact that I didn't bring my measuring cup with me. Yes, I am one of THOSE people. But it works for me - when I do it.

I know what trips me up. Not measuring, under tracking & portion sizes are probably my worst faults when it comes to healthy living.

I have been tracking the dark chocolate edamame, the thing that is calling to me this trip, but I am also probably eating more than I've tracked. And who does that hurt?

I also have a funny story to go along with the edamame. I packed them in my checked luggage, in the container they came in - a plastic box with a lid. It had been opened, but the lid was on.

When I opened the luggage, there was the box. Mostly empty, but with the lid still in place and edamame sitting on TOP of the lid. And all over my luggage.

I was reminded of the scene from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" - the one when they open the ark & rays shoot out, melting everyone & then shooting it all up to heaven & ultimately the lid falls perfectly into place.

Morale of the story? Be honest to yourself or you could be melted - well, actually, you could be inflated!

    LOL! Well, what's weird is once again when I don't track or exercise very much, I lost weight. I don't know what to do about that... LOL but I'll take it for now. But everyone has to do what works for them! And the dark chocolate edamame sounds great!
