I didn't do it

October 26th, 2009 at 05:08 pm

I was contemplating going out to get myself a lobster for dinner yesterday...but I didn't even leave the house (except to take out the trash). I instead had some salmon that I had in the freezer, along with some squash and garlic mashed potatoes. That was a delicious meal, if I say so myself! It also was the smarter way to go, seeing I had all the ingredients in the house already. Didn't cost an extra dime.

I did go to the grocery store after work today, and I'll tell you what I didn't buy: lobster, chocolate, chips, and other junk food. I've been eating much healthier the last few days and I feel better already. The bloating and just plain loogy feeling has already disappeared. I know I feel better when I eat right, but sometimes my tastebuds get the better of me and overpower my iron will...and make me inhale a bag of chips.

Tonight, instead of filling up on junk (which I would have seeing I only had to cook for myself - DH is coming home late tomorrow), I made myself a shrimp scampi with whole wheat pasta. Delicious.

    Nice work holding yourself back.

    Salmon sounds so good right now! We used to live in New England but now are far from the ocean in SE Europe, and that leads to a dearth of good seafood. Not only is it delicious, and I miss it, but it's really good for you. In lecture today we heard that perhaps because of their high seafood diet, Eskimos have the insurance of almost no cases of multiple sclerosis... interesting.
