Self-Respect and Easter
After writing the previous post, I realized something else. I had planned for Easter to be a free-day sticking to healthy foods. I was planning to indulge in all the deliscious foods at local Easter buffet. Then perhapsh, I would have a few of my favorite Easter candies, like jelly beans, chocolate covered, peanut butter eggs, and Russel Stover nests (a coconut, chocolate thingy).
But now that I think about it, that would be a complete disrespect of myself. What would be the point of such over-indulgence? Would it help me continue eating healthy by taking a break from it? Probably not. Instead, it might make me think about eating that kinda garbage even more.
So here is my plan of attack. I will only get one plate of food. I might take something not so healthy, like a saugage link, but I will only take one. I will keep everything to small portions, but first I will take up a large part of the plate with salad and fruit. I can live without the dessert and candy. I can respect myself enough not to eat that junk.
Introspection is a good thing.
