I. Love. Nachos.
And, being the calorie bomb that they are, I have been avoiding them since October.
Yesterday my in-laws treated us to lunch at a great Mexican restaurant that has killer nachos. I did NOT want to order a salad.
My husband, knowing my love of the cheesy goodness with extra guacamole, leaned over and offered to split a plate with me.
The angel on one shoulder said, "NO WAY! EAT SALAD!"
The devil on the other said, "Go for it! Who knows when such an opportunity will arise again!! SEIZE THE DAY!"
So, I thought about my future self and what she would thank me for doing.
I ate the nachos.
I giggled over them with my dear hubby and savored every bite. It was so fun to share that moment together and enjoy one of my favorite treats. I felt like a giddy teenager on a date.
Had I ate the salad I would have pouted and felt deprived.
Moderation, living in the moment, savoring the things I love with the people I love...
Slowly I am learning to live healthy and not "be on a diet".
Today I ate salad. Go me.
