The Guilty Eating Train Has Left the Station


Food–the source of good and evil in this world.  How can it be that food is both our strength and nourishment while also being our crutch and guilty pleasure?  Most, if not all of us, would agree that eating healthy is not as much fun as diving into a piece of chocolate cake, and yet when we do eat healthy we feel so much better about ourselves.  Rather than starve ourselves of the food we love we should aim  to eat delectable foods in moderation.  Yes, it’s a cliche, but I do believe that moderation is the key to life! 

The same can be said of exercise in that if we go 100% every day working our bodies to the max, they are eventually going to tell us “please stop and let me be a slug on the couch.”  And it’s ok…so I say even though it’s a new year you are allowed to have a few unhealthy eating habits, like ordering that sundae from the McDonald’s drive thru or having a cheeseburger with all the fixings.  Moderation keeps the guilt from creeping back into our lives, too!  Just be sure to keep stock of feeding good things to your body because they are needed to fuel a better workout and create a better centered you throughout your day.  And that is something to smile about.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
