So yesterday I rode my bike a little, I am still trying to get use to being on a bike. I haven't been on a bike since I was a teenager. But the good news is it was comfortable and it's all coming back to me. I will have to find time to snap a picture of it.
After a day of working on the house and running errands, the husband and I decided that we didn't want to make dinner again. I know we need to stop eating out. In any case, we decided to go a burger place here in town that we really love. I was just craving a pogo for some reason. So I order my pogo and the waitress says: Would you like fries with that? I said yes even though I should have said salad. When my plate comes and I eat slowly, knowing that I must pay attention to when my body says it full, starting with my pogo. I enjoyed every morsel of that thing. Then I started eating my fries. It was weird, the whole time I was eat them, I wasn't really enjoying them. They just didn't taste that good. So I stopped eating them. Hmmmm what a concept.
Somewhere along this journey, I have learned to slow down and actually taste my food. I have also learned that somethings, I feel are totally worth every calorie in them like the pogo, while others just aren't, like those fries. I am not saying I will never eat fries again but I really think a salad might just become my normal side dish. Hooray for progress!
It's another beautiful day here and I plan on getting out and enjoying it!
