Food is for Nutrition

Well it wasn't planned (it never is) but Friday and Saturday turned into a major dieting detour. It all ended up with me in pain in the bathroom on Saturday night wishing I had just stuck to the plan and all of this wouldn't be happening. Hopefully I will remember that feeling the next time I want to dabble in the land of SAD food.

Food is for nutrition. Food is for nutrition. Food is for nutrition. Why can't I remember this? Can I have it magically tattooed to my hand so that it blinks like a bright neon sign every time I go to put something that is nutritionally void in my mouth? If I could have one wish at this point it wouldn't be to be instantaneously skinny with the ability to eat anything I want - it'd be to think FOOD IS FOR NUTRITION and not food is because it's yummy or food is because __________ (insert stupid excuse here). Somehow I will have to instill this thought into my head so it's what I think of first and it's what happens when I start to want something bad for me. Maybe I'll get a bracelet or something... similar to a magical tattoo, no?

For the next 3 days I'll be in Boston, so no posts until Thursday. I am going to do my best to stick to ETL while I'm there. My goal will be AT LEAST 80% - since I know I will have to make some concessions when eating at restaurants, but I will do my best, because FOOD IS FOR NUTRITION.

When I get back I am going to go for as many Kale days as I can until Thanksgiving. I don't want to say that ALL of them will end up being Kale days but I do want a lot of Kale days because they really do make me feel good physically and also its a great self esteem boost to know I am doing the best I possibly can.
