Hello wagon. Remember me?

Posted March 8th, 2008 under Healthy me, Life by MicheleP.

It’s official. I not only jumped off the wagon but I let it run over me in the process.

Me and food – food and me. What a co-dependent relationship we have. We get together when I’m happy…when I’m sad…when I’m stressed, anxious, depressed, excited – yeah, all those too. And this whole “lets move to Puerto Rico” thing has brought plenty of all of that – and then some – and well, my food and I…we’ve have had quite a few rendezvous. Added to that, I really enjoy some of the local stuff – most of which consists of a starch that is then fried in some fashion or another – yeah, you get the picture – and it ain’t pretty.

So this week I got angry. I got angry at my eating habits and lack of consistent exercise. I got angry enough that I got my angry self up each morning and hit the pavement running. I cleansed the pantry and fridge of unneeded temptations, stocked up on healthy choices (although Scott was quite fearful of the huge jar of flax seed with it’s high level of fiber and made me promise to tell him when it was added to foods), and will start a whole body cleanse this week.

Believe it or not, I really like the wagon – I just gotta hang on better when we hit bumps in the road next time!

    I’m right there with you. Cleaned out the pantry, but I haven’t resorted to flax seed yet. It’s something to think about though…

    One of my friends is spending next week in Puerto Rico. I enjoy your “tales” and think of you often.
    Love you.
