Yesterday was one of those days where the food was part of the celebration. People, eating, laughing, talking, celebrating seem to go together.
In this case, it was the Fourth of July celebration, but it could be any celebration. It’s summer, but it could be any season. We will be invited to porlucks, birthday parties, weddings, showers, homes for dinner, anniversaries, BBQs, beach parties, pool parties, and picnics and more.
What do you do after a few too many chips? or deserts? or potato salad?
Of course, I have done the same thing.
I have learned a few things:
1. One day does not make a lifestyle and how I eat is a lifestyle, mindful nourishment, not a “diet”
2. Recognizing the past is past and starting anew is the only way: it’s a new hour, a new meal, a new day
3. NO self-criticism: punishment doesn’t work, self-criticism is punishment…
4. Move on to the next moment
Today is the day after a food feast.
It’s a new day, I think I’ll eat my oatmeal now.
Love each moment, you’ll never have this moment again,
