I am on a constant journey – a journey towards a healthier lifestyle. I am trying to eat healthier foods, use better portion control, and binge eat less. I am trying to stick to my workouts and not skip days. However, I am a big believer that it is important to live a little too.
Yesterday was my best friend’s wedding shower, and I was in charge.
I am not cutesy and girlie at all, and I am pretty awkward.
So I did what I knew… food.
I bought 7.5 pounds of cheese for 15 of us.
Considering I originally had 10 pounds in the cart, I think this is excellent restraint.
Not everyone ate their designated half pound of cheese, crazy people, but I happily enjoyed mine as my lunch/dinner.
I also discovered a new favorite wine. I don’t even like sweet wines, but this tastes just like crushed, fresh blackberries. I may bathe in it. It is amazing.
I know I am still working on improving, and making healthier decisions. However, even when I have it all under control, and have this whole healthy eating thing figured out – I will still let myself live a little. Some days a girl just needs to eat too much cheese, try some new wine, and remember how beautiful life is when you are surrounded by good food, great friends, and wonderful family.
Progress, not perfection.
Live a little!
Could you have eaten a half pound of cheese?
What is your favorite kind of cheese?
My favorite fancier cheese is Cambozola, but I also love a spicy Pepperjack or real smoky Gouda.
