Controlling what I eat and diet Nazis
Thursday, September 29, 2011
It occurred to me today, in one of those Oprah light bulb moments that I have very little control in my life right now. I have zero financial control ( but considering my previous spending habits, that's a good thing I think! ) I have no control over where I live, I mean everything about it. Living with my parents again....I have no kitchen of my own, no bathroom! If my mother wants the plates on the first shelf, and not the second, too bad for me! I have no control over my health, or lack there of. My body is betraying me in my 30's, when I am supposed to be at my prime. I watch my parents, who are in their 60's, and the sounds they make getting out of their recliners and into their respective scooters, sound frightening similiar to the noise I make getting up! Yikes! I am seeing my not too distant future in them, and I shudder. This is mot the life I wanted, and where do I go for here? How do I turn this sow's ear of a life into a silk purse? ( or even a polyester Walmart purse? )
So anyway, in my little light bulb moment, I realized that the ONLY thing I can control right now is my diet. Not in a diet Nazi way, but just monitoring what I eat. Actually paying attention to what I put in my mouth for a change! So that is what I am here to do.
