Denial

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

I went to Chipolte yesterday for lunch instead of eating the frozen meal I packed. Bad, I know, but my lady times are raging fierce and I needed something more substantial than a frozen entree.

In front of me were an older mother and her daughter (like 50s/30s). Their orders were so depressing. Neither of them wanted rice in their bowls, to the point of near hysteria when the woman serving them didn't hear/understand their initial request and all their toppings were 'tiny bits, on the side'. Both of them had the extreme thin appearance I always associate with long term dieters and they both approached ordering their lunches with a vaguely hostile attitude.

Very sad. Hating food like that is just as bad as over indulging in it. You need to enjoy your body, love it, nurture it, and that includes on occasion just enjoying what you eat.

I had a bowl with rice and guac and sour cream for the record, and it was totally delicious.

    I think setting yourself up with an adversarial or hate relationship with food is just a load of FAIL. You need food. You need it to make your body run. You can't cut it out of your life like a bad ex. So make peace with it. Make peace with your body. And then tune it to the way you want it to run.

    lol I SO hear you on that one. Food should be ENJOYED, not hated. I dont know how ppl can live like that.

    I know that i can be that irritating sometimes when i order food at my local mexican reasturant (Taco salad please, no shell or rice please.. but extra pinto beans and some of that black bean salsa on the side thanks!) But i could never be even the slightest hostlie... I think they're crabby from all the deprevation!!

    Good for you for having the rice, S.C. and guac!
