Prompt for Dec. 20: Beyond avoidance. What should you have done this year but didn't because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)
(author Jake Nickell)
Gotta admit it; this was the year for generalized over-indulgence in food and drink. As for the "food", way too much was endorphin generating raw sugar; all sorts of cookies, chocolates, cake, ice cream. Many times a meal was skipped and several hours later the grinding gut drove me to a carbohydrate fest, all washed down with a cup of coffee or a diet soda.
How many bottles of sav blanc were opened and polished off this year? I hate to think.
Why? Because it all felt good at the time.
Will anything change in 2011? I'm hoping so. Otherwise I'll be purchasing a new wardrobe and I really, really don't like that idea. Plus, I know on some level we are what we eat and I could seriously make better choices that would enhance my life down the line. So instead of living in this moment in front of the kitchen cabinet or fridge making my not-so-great selections, I need to STOP and THINK.
Oh shit, but that will be hard.
