Cheeseburger Blues

Today I heard part of a discussion on tv about "What would you do if you only had two days to live". Well, probably not a lot. I mean I'd be sure and say good bye to everyone, and try to figure out who was going to take care of my pets. But honestly, unless you were scheduled for execution or something you'd probably be too sick to do much. And I'm not planning on execution anytime soon.

However, I did have a couple of thoughts. If I were told that death was going to happen relatively soon, there were a couple of things I'd do. I'd buy a pack of cigarettes, and maybe some good weed although it's been so very long since I've indulged that would probably send me over the edge. And I would have a cheeseburger and french fries with plenty of salt. This healthy eating isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Tonight by the time I got out of Tai Chi, I was starving. Oh what the heck, I'll just treat myself to a Sonic meal. Feeling quite decadent, I ordered it and a big Coke and headed home to eat this marvelous meal. But ewwww...there was grease (duh)....and a lot of salt and ewwwww...I didn't even want to share it with the dog. I'm not faulting Sonic. I'm just saying that I've already gotten used to some of this new way of eating. I was disappointed and still hungry but a bowl of Strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats took care of the hunger. Maybe cigarettes and weed would be the same. Is this what growing old is about. Thank goodness for chocolate! Oh yeah, and I do know that pizza still tastes quite good to me. But only the plain cheese. That pepperoni was just too much.

I'm wondering if now, when I have dreams of good things to eat, it will consist of raw baby carrots and celery. :-(

Poor girl! Can't eat the crap no more? ;) Somehow, I still manage to eat bad stuff sometimes.

However! One of the last times we went to Braum's for a burger (we don't have them up here and are addicted), the thing was wayyyy too salty.

Even weirder... I've been craving salad the past few days. Not with a lot of topping, just a bit of dressing and a few croutons for the crunch. Very strange. Maybe it's a reaction to the overdose of birthday cake. Hugs to you for the card, by the way. :D You're adorable.

But now you can appreciate the true taste of food. It's not that you have lost anything, rather you are gaining a new appreciation for the good stuff.

Welcome to the world of somewhat healthy eating! It's actually a really nice place. :-)

Isn't is amazing how our bodies adjust to new things?!?! After making my own bread with mostly organic spelt but once in a while organic whole wheat mixed with organic white, just the thought of eating other bread starts the gag reflex.
Every once in a while I crave a huge Hardee's (Big Boy) burger, even though I boycott Hardee's because of the 'Star.'
