So in my head, I keep thinking about the holiday weekend, and how Memorial Day tends to kick off summer in my family. With that, comes the good summertime BBQ foods. And what do I do tonight when I'm feeling really like I want to give up and just indulge? I go to a BBQ tonight where they are grilling up cheeseburgers and hot dogs, have chips and dip and all the fixin's, along with a decadant chocolate cake cake filled with orange creme and frosted with ganache. Deilicious!
..........Actually, I'm sure it was all divinely delicious! I chose to stick to my shrimp and veggies and fruit, no dips, not fixin's, and no cake. I'm proud of myself for once again proving that I'm learning to listen to my body and what is really necessary and what I can skip. It's hard, and I'm home and full from all of the fruit and veggies I munched on all night, but my head is still telling me that I should break open something else to snack on. I think that learning to listen to my real needs is going to be the hardest lesson to learn. But I also think that the more I do it, the easier it will get. So, chocolate cake filled with orange creme and frosted with ganache, it was nice to meet you, but tonight I'll pass. Some other time though, after I've learned a few more lessons!
