Random Thoughts for the Dog Days of Summer

Eating Choices

      My family and I were on a recent trip. We were at a place called Claim Jumpers, good food chain on the West Coast. It was lunch time. Really, a late lunch and I didn't want any lunch food. I had been to Claim Jumpers many times and always looked at their carrot cake. So I made a first time in my life decision, No lunch, just a piece of Carrot cake.

Some may say that this was not a good choice...very unhealthy...bad self control. I say the opposite. I did not want a grilled chicken breast or salad or fish, I wanted a piece of Claim Jumpers carrot cake. It was a choice based on what I wanted. No decoy meal ordered and then ordering a piece of cake to "share" but a real honest choice.

I loved the cake and did share it.

It was strange for me because I never in 60 years had done this. I did not feel guilty because it was what I wanted. Since I watch what I eat most of the time and choose wisely, this was not anything but another choice. Not good or bad but a choice.

Eating for so many people is guilt, points, right, wrong and judging.

This choice reminded me that eating should none of the above negative feelings.
