I'm not hungry.. I'll just pick

I usually think of eating healthy when I wake up in the morn
but with my pot of coffee today, I ate a buttered muffin made of corn
appetite perpetuated I knew I couldn't hold out till lunch
So I pulled open the Doritos to satisfy my urge to crunch
Lunch time came but my tuna with lite mayo just didn't appease
so I opted for a Salami & provolone on a roll (with a pickle please)
I had planned on plain baked chicken for dinner with healthy veggies on the side
The veggies ended up in cheese sauce and those breasts.. well they got fried
After dinner I decided enough is enough! I am full! I am done!
Until I noticed we still had some ice cream, just a scoop? just one?
ice cream led to cookies, cookies are just cookies after all
a few from the jar with a cup of tea and a friendly phone call...
Well after something sweet you just CRAVE salty on your lips
Back into those Doritos I make a night cap out of chips
I feel disgusting I feel disappointed I feel like my belly aches
I swear next time I food shop I won't buy the chips and cakes
I will fill my fridge with healthy treats in which to feed my face
Green treats will FILL the fridge giving the cookie jar lots of space

check out fridge space for more.

Lucy,
Yup, unfortunately that's the daily dogma for too many of us! I think it's at it's worse in Feb.
Eating to feel good for the moment always beats eating to feel good in the long term for me.

Are you sure you haven't been spying on me?

I've got an entire bag of baby greens rotting in the fridge right now because it's too cold for a salad to appeal...
