Back on January 1, I was undergoing daily radiation treatments. But as of Jan 31, I'm DONE with both chemo and radiation.
Some celebrating is definitely in order. I'm making plans with friends, moving forward with my Gargoyle Girl Productions business, cooking new recipes that are both healthy and delicious.
But there's a psychological stumbling block that's gotten in the way of that last item. Nagging.
I was already a pretty healthy eater, but now I'm going all out to treat my body well. There's no way I'm going to eat healthily if the food isn't tasty, so I've been experimenting with lots of cookbooks and recipes to find meals that satisfy both necessities. I've found many fantastic healthy recipes, which I'm really happy about.
But as soon as someone *else* tells me I should be eating something healthier, that's when I want to go order one of those mega hamburgers you see on Man v. Food. Washed down with a pint of vodka.
I don't actually want to eat that burger. Or to have more than a single martini. But if someone tells me I can't have those things? Then I want them.
I'm finding my own style of healthy eating that works for me, and if anyone else nags me about doing something differently, it's only going to backfire.
