[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
After resolving to not eat junk, I ended up wolfing down half a box of popcorn at the movies. Grrr! Why do I do these things? Popcorn is evil, I swear. I didn't buy it, my son did and we made a snap decision to go to the movies so I had no time to prepare healthy treats but I could have had nothing. I didn't need to eat. I'd had lunch. I can surely sit through a 3 hour movie without snacking. Oh yeah, the movie wasn't 3 hours, it was just there were about an hour of pre-Harry Potter trailers and ads. If I'd known that, I'd have ran into the supermarket for some air popped popcorn. Oh well, I guess there is nothing for it but to move on and be thankful I didn't get a choc top as well.
Ages ago I signed up for this thing called Note From The Universe. Every day I get an email. I used to read them but now I just delete them but am too lazy to unsubscribe. For some reason I read today's though -
I don’t quite get how there can be so many gorgeous people in time and space, Kathryn, yet so few who choose to see their own beauty.
Woohoo! I'm way above average.
You know, I have ethical dilemmas about the most stupid things. Like, for instance, packaged salads. See on the one hand, I hate washing lettuce and I'm a lousy maker of salads. I like the convenience of grabbing a bag of salad from the supermarket. I put it in my trolley and then I hear my friend, Tim's voice in my head saying only stupid people buy packaged salads. You could buy the ingredients and make it yourself for around 50 cents. So I put the salad back. Sometimes I buy the ingredients but then half the time never get around to making the salad because it's too much effort. It is indeed a quandary.
Don't feel guilty about buying packaged salads! I think the extra money is worth the time you save. And it's certainly better than spending it on a doctor. We are living in a golden age of food preparation in that we basically don't have to prepare foods anymore. It's fabulous! I can buy skinned, deboned chicken breasts in a bag and save myself so much hassle.
Let me add to the Great Salad Debate...while costing a bit more, the packaged salad tends to last longer than the heads of lettuce that I buy, so I would end up throwing half of the bags of veggies away anyhow.
