Lifestyle Changes based on self love
Wednesday, October 10, 2007
Today I went to a networking luncheon. The food served was dismal -1. filet of cold fish ; 2 fried shrimp,2 mayo heavy salads; cesaer salad and carrot cake. In the past I would probably have eaten everything offered. After all, I paid $20 and I am hungry at lunchtime. Today I looked at it and thought "I want to nourish my body in the healthiest way out of love and self respect". I ate the cold fillet, the leaves of lettuce with the least amount of dressing and part of the noodle and faux crab salad; none of the cake, fried shrimp or orzo and (canned?) fruit salad. The best part was, it was not hard to not eat up everything there. I am going to remember to treat my body as my friend and be good to it!
I am really intrigued by the Spark article on "Stop Dieting and Start Living". I need to remember:
"Learning to take good care of yourself emotionally, physically, and spiritually—so that you don’t want to use eating to solve problems it really can’t—is a lifelong learning process that is constantly changing as your needs and circumstances change".
I'm really glad that there are people and material here for me to grab on to when I grapple with remembering and re-learning.
