Mom Moments: How Do You Maintain a "Healthy" Lifestyle? Day 13:55 PM
I'm the total paradox of health in some ways. I'm a sugar addict, love diet soda, and often skip meals in lieu of snacks. This week, for example, I ate some of the most ridiculous food while visiting friends in L.A. Here's a pic of the mess I had for lunch yesterday:
Now this thing was essentially a polish dog, covered in chili, grilled onions, slices of American cheese, and bacon -- yes bacon. All of it was wrapped up in a tortilla, and when you picked it up, grease came oozing out the end of the wrap. It was delish. Paired with a baked potato and sour cream, this was definitely a once-a-year splurge. But I did it in a rather smart way.
I only had 5 bites.
Yes, 5 was all I needed to "experience" this dish. It was awesome, but I knew it would add about a zillion calories and a bunch of indigestion into my day. (With a flight back to Nebraska in just a few hours, who needed that?)
The secret to keeping healthy (for me) involves not depriving myself. But that also means I NEVER get to finish the whole thing. It's the taste, the experience, the thrill... but never about stuffing myself.
I'll be sharing more about my "healthy" lifestyle over the next 7 days! Have a great weekend :)
