Chutes and Ladders

I know I've said it before, but being healthy for me is sometimes like being on a giant slide....or better yet a game of Chutes and Ladders.  I climb up, I slide down, I climb up, I slide down.  I have been playing this damn game for YEARS and I'm not over yet.

Lately I've been "taking a break." Well, that's what I would tell myself.  I just don't want to worry about it, think about it, etc. etc.  The thing is I can't really do that, not yet.  I have too many issues with food to just take a little break.  Issues being food addictions.  I don't know how to just have a little of this or a little of that.  I have it and I want more and I'm going to keep having more.

Thankfully what I have learned is to not keep that up for very long.  I've been feeling pretty awful lately, but not taking care of myself to make myself feel better.  I mean, come on, it's just a little break AND I'm still working out like a fiend right?  Nope.  I was sick last week and then hurt something in my back and my activity level came to a screeching hault.  Plus, relying on the activity is not going to get me anywhere.  I will just be fit and fat.  Diet is everything...EVERYTHING.  If I'm not eating right I'm not going to feel better, look better, etc no matter how many squats I do in the gym.  Just means I'm squatting more weight.

Today I left for lunch and was headed to a Mexican place that I love.  I was daydreaming about chips and salsa and enchiladas.  As I was driving though I made a choice.  I chose to turn towards The Green Boheme instead and have a healthy alive lunch...not a dead sad one.

It was all I needed.  Thank you The Green Boheme for reminding me what GOOD food tastes like and getting me back on the ladder!!
