OK, well Christmas did not go very well. I ate about every delicious thing I laid my eyes on. Oh well, back on the wagon today.
For lunch, I had a veggie burger. I just want to say that I was not really looking forward to eating it. It didn't look all that good, and I'm sure if I had wandered around the cafeteria a little more, I would have found a lot of other options that looked much better (but were much, much worse for me). I just grabbed it though.
I have to say though, that now, after eating it, I feel good about my decision. It was very filling. And light, not greasy. How would I have felt if I had grabbed a bacon cheeseburger instead? I'm sure I would have enjoyed eating that a lot more, but after?
I must remember to think about the whole picture. How food makes me feel doesn't end when it crosses my lips. I feel the effects of food for hours (days?) after I'm done eating it. If I focus more on making that food the kind of fuel I WANT in my body, I'm going to be much happier and much more successful. Just needed to jot this down so I don't forget.
