It’s not a secret that one of my biggest vices is junk food. Last week, in an effort to not eat out so I can pay off my credit card bill as I do every month (If you’re just tuning it, I had car trouble last month which threw a wrench into my monthly spending), I brought chips and sandwiches for lunch. My sandwich to chips proportion were equal. Then at home, I’d snack on Doritos on the couch. Luckily, it was a short week and I didn’t eat at home for dinner every night. Anyway, I totally overdid it on the chips all week. And aside from the salad Alan cajoled me to eat during our date night last week, I can’t remember the last time I ate something green.
This past weekend, I went to a small town with Alan for a wedding. We stayed up late Friday and Saturday night and small town eats do not cater to night owls. We ended up watching TV in the wee hours of the morning in bed and eating bags and bags and bags of chips. We even took a romantic stroll down the hall to the vending machine to load up at 2 a.m. It was fantastically fun in a juvenile and guilty pleasure kind of way at the time, but now my body is begging me to eat something good for me.
Instead of sandwiches and chips (one last month of tight purse strings), I bought bananas, yogurt, cheeses, and nuts to bring for lunch. I always know when I’ve gone too far in my terrible eating habits when my body is SCREAMING for something nutritional and/or unprocessed, and maybe even green. It’s really embarrassing that I let it get this bad. Once I over did it on the junk food eating (my entire diet for months was different shades of brown), that my body was craving nutrients as soon as possible. I was in the middle of a night time job and couldn’t leave, so I got the only thing nutritional we had in our vending machine, something I find absolutely disgusting normally. A V8. Tomato juice! I gulped that sucker down and couldn’t get it down fast enough.
Yuck. V8′s. I’m not that desperate yet, but I’m getting there.
I’m 27 years old. I should get my eating in control. This is unacceptable.
P.S. The wedding was beautiful. Here are a few photos.
