Someone once told me that eating a whole pineapple would leave a person’s tongue raw. That isn’t tree. I’ve devoured many delicious whole pineapples; and ten oranges; and five to ten mangoes depending on their sizes. I’ve enjoyed two pounds of broccoli, and if you get me olive oil, vinegar, mashed strawberries, crushed cashew nuts and a dash of Romano cheese, I will happily eat a serving of lettuce the size of my head, times two.
I can also eat half a pound of cake and a quart of dulce de leche ice cream, covered in an indecent amount of chocolate flavored Hershey’s Shell. Oh yeah, and I’ve been known to down a loaf of Italian bread. Yum!
I love food. And I’m a lucky eater. How do I get lucky with my food, you may ask? Well, I rarely binge on cake, ice cream or bread; fruits and vegetables are the things I love most. So my body doesn’t get too upset, or um… plump, when I go into one of my eating sprees.
The Get Off Your Broom Week 8 mini-challenge asked, “How clean is your diet?” I think my eating is balanced in a way that works for me. I need to stay on top of my water drinking habits, but aside from that I eat pretty well.
On the exercise department, I need to report that I did my Daily Thirteen routine three times this week, and I walked a few miles. The next two weeks will be a little slow because of the end of the school semester. I have many deadlines, but that’s okay.
What about you, my Wicked Darlings? How clean is your diet? And if you celebrate Thanksgiving, this week don’t count ;-)
And let me share my latest gift from my Piano Man. No, my lover didn’t give me the sky, but he got my face out of a book, said, “Look at this, baby” and I was blessed with this amazing peachy pink sunset over our bit of New York.
