Random food thoughts....

We're in Oklahoma City for our monthly board meetings.

It's always a time where I let myself go, food-wise.

By that I mean, we eat out and we eat well.

And I let myself fully enjoy it.


Well, I just saw on Fox News that the government wants to keep us healthy by restricting our salt intake.

Good grief. Life is too short for me to do that... and enjoy life.

'Course it may shorten my life... but it's my life. Not the government's.

(I just had to rant a little.)


Oh, speaking of food....
at Panera Bread one of their sides now is a delicious mac 'n cheese. I tasted Laura's a while back. YUM.

And on this food note, let me say that I do permit myself to overeat once a month.
Sadly, lately, though, I've overeaten A LOT more often.

When we get back tomorrow night .... I will go to bed with the resolve to not overeat until the next month's meetings!!!

Hold me to that, okay?

I've always liked this thought:
Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

I need to remember that!!!!!!!!!!!

(I know. Last year I said I wasn't going to start the year with a diet.....
Well, that was last year. This is a new year.....
.... starting day after tomorrow.)

Your comment about lowering the salt intake made me think of last night when you went to sprinkle the salt on the your dinner and it POURED out.

I absolutely will NOT hold you to that -- at least not when we go to Gloria's for your birthday lunch, LOL.

I'm going to Panera tomorrow night, so I'm going to try the mac and cheese.

As for "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels" well, I don't know. I just don't know. Maybe I don't remember how thin actually feels, but I do remember how good some things taste.

I try to remind myself of what Maya Angelou says, "There's always another day to eat that second helping of _______________."

I'm glad you like to blog, cause I always enjoy reading yours.
