Like, All the time…
While you may be thinking, what kind of headline is this? I’ll fill you in on a little secret. I love chips….like….I LOVE them. I could easily polish off a bag a day ( I don’t, but sometimes….I do). I wanted to cover this topic, because I think it is important that we all know that its OK to eat like crap sometimes. It’s OK to eat Doritos for breakfast. Why are we supposed to feel guilty about that? I certainly don’t feel guilty. I have come to accept that I will never be a size 2. And that is OK! I would rather finish my healthy dinner and wash it down with some chips, as I watch some tv, and know that my pant size is a little snug, then to listen to my stomach gurgle, and then think about those beautiful triangle zesty cheese Doritos chips that are just sitting in the cupboard calling my name.
I don’t know about you, but when I crave something, I stop focusing on whatever I am doing and just think of that. Funny though, when I meditate, I can’t seem to have such great focus as I seem to have when chips are just sitting there. I may sound crazy, but, I also know that If I don’t get to them first….then my husband will finish them off during his sneaky midnight food raid. I seriously hate if I ward off my craving, and I am feeling all good about myself, and then I give into it the next day and….
THE BAG IS EMPTY! Oh….My……G#&$&#&$@! I don’t know about you, but the level of anger and frustration that arises form the depths of my being is unreal! Then I go on a little rampage….that sort of looks like this…… WHO ATE MY CHIPS! WHERRRRRRRE are my CHIPS!…….DID YOU FINISH MY CHIPS???? And then, I run over to the trash can and pop up that little white lid….and there it is…..at the top of the can…..my zesty cheese Doritos. And to add insult to injury… I can see a few unfinished crumbs in the bottom.. WTh$%$? Are you kidding me? You left two glorious chips at the bottom of the bag!! I WOULD OF EATEN THOSE FOR BREAKFAST!
I wish I could say I was joking. But the sad reality is that I am not. I own it. It’s time for all of us to own it too! Go enjoy that Bag of chips, or slice of cake or pint of ice cream. Enjoy every damn minute of it, and don’t regret it for a second! We only live once!!
