We sat in a booth with a window. Instead of soda, I ordered a carrot and organge juice. I was not hungry because of breakfast (left over taco meat with chips). I felt so much guilt about consuming chips n chile on Saturday, then continuing the trend with Sunday morning. Then I find myself in a taqueria on Sunday afternoon. I had gone 2 weeks without chips n chile. I know I sound like an alcoholic falling off the wagon but that's just how it is when I'm around chips and salsa. I have eaten an entire bag of tortilla chips. Something wonderful about placing a chip, loaded with chile, smack in the middle of my mouth and tasting and hearing the crunch. I know... I'M GLORIFYING THE CHIP... Moving on.
After our comida, we headed to the movies to see Red Tails. My reason for choosing this movie? Terrence Howard, of course. Daniel found the movie boring. He fell asleep. I kept watching hoping the movie would draw me in. It never did. Maybe because I wanted it to be a love story like Pearl Harbor but it never came close. I did enjoy watching Terence Howard on the big screen. I think he's very handsome.
While Daniel snoozed. I dug into my purse for some pinata candy from my granddaughter and niece's birthday parites on Saturday. Can you believe I did not have any tres leches cake? I did over dose on tacos and party food. I hate feeling guilt over food. I had been doing so well with my weekends. No need to dwell on negative thoughts. Instead, I'm preparing for the week. I have peruvian beans in the crock pot, brisket roasting in the oven and lots of fresh veggies and fruits for my lunches during the week.
I need to be careful with feeling guilt over food. Life is worth celebrating and we latinos love to celebrate with food Moderation will always be a struggle. I accept that and I'll just move on...
