Maybe I’m the only one who has conversations with myself. Arguments, too, which I always win. Funny how that works.
So while we were talking in the grocery store on Saturday, myself and I, I wanted to make the food behave instead of myself. Old habits clinging to life in the wrinkles of my brain made me want to choose expensive and unhealthy “diet food” instead of real food. Standing there, I realized that I was fixating over food, yet again, and I resolved, yet again, to stop that. I refuse to obsess over the food or the scales. I am unanimous with this decision…with myself.
I will say one more thing on food: Yesterday (while eating out) I was reminded of something that happened the last time I gave up sugar. Food tastes so much better.
As I start my Monday morning talking about food obsession, the headlines this morning tell me that there are real troubles in this world. My eating habits are not one of them.
Today, I choose to focus on praying for friends and family who need prayer, for folks in this winter storm, and for the people who are dealing with the devastating aftermath of the latest acts of terror from ISIS.
I hope your day is a good one.
