Last night of course was Taco Tuesday…and surprisingly we are still not sick of it! I think we’ve been on our Taco Tuesday kick every week without fail for well over a month, if not more. Bring on the Mexican food! 🙂
For our tacos we had:
- Re-fried Vegetarian Beans
- Cheddar Cheese
- Sour Cream
- Hot Sauce
It was a delicious dinner but I was completely stuffed. Two taco piles will do that to ya I guess!
After dinner Andy and I decided to take the dogs for a walk. We have not done that in so long so it was nice to get out and spend some quality time with our lil’ family.
Plus, these two crazy monsters needed to do something with their never-ending energy:
We walked around the neighborhood for about a half hour and enjoyed the nice, warm evening.
When we got back everyone was looking a bit tired…
Andy and Sophia even shared a special moment relaxing on the couch:
Eating just to Eat
Once I sat back down on the couch and caught up on the latest episode of Millionaire Matchmaker (holy first date in the hot tub!), I felt hungry. Well, to be honest I wasn’t all that hungry but I really wanted something sweet to munch on. A small bowl of cereal did the trick! Sometimes I eat just to eat. There, I said it 😉
I don’t care that I do this sometimes and in fact, I enjoy it. I enjoy food so much and sometimes I do just eat simply because I want to.
I also sometimes eat because I am bored, tired, happy or upset. I admit that I do use food for comfort from time to time. But I am OK with it. I don’t do it often, but I do think it’s completely normal to want something to comfort you, and for me it’s sometimes just a warm, filling meal.
My focus on food and exercise has changed dramatically over the last few years. I’ve gone from meticulously counting grams of protein, carbs, and fat (especially during Figure Competition prep) to counting scoops of ice cream at Dairy Queen (and making sure I get plenty!)
I’m not saying I don’t care about what I eat (because I do!), but I certainly don’t go crazy. I’ve found a balance that works for me. To some, my diet may be unhealthy. I mean I ate tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream at dinner (which is just fine by me). But by others’ healthy living standards it may be junk. It’s all just food to me and I like it all. The good, the bad, and the extra greasy.
Do you ever eat just to eat?
