As I eat through each day, I can’t reach the end without some kind of avoid passing my lips. I do try for avoid-free days, but something always comes along.
Yesterday, hubby was marinating steaks for dinner. The marinade was compliant. I suggested sautéed greens (olive oil and garlic) for the vegetable. It sounded like a nice mix of beneficial and neutral foods. As we were going through the grocery store, he picked up a small container of pine nuts. I felt a little dismay, but kept my mouth shut. I didn’t want to cause tension by piping up “I can’t eat pine nuts”. I can’t expect him to care much about my food lists. So, I ate a few. No harm done. In fact, by not causing tension between us, I may have kept both our cortisol levels low. Funny, though, the only taste in my mouth this morning is of pine nut essence. A reminder that I once again I didn’t make 100% compliance.
On another note, the Capitol City Marathon is being run today. They changed the course this year so they run right past our house. I am amazed at the number of middle-aged and older folks zooming by. We are just past mile 14, and when I went out to watch for awhile, I only heard one person huffing and puffing. It makes me feel a bit wistful about not being more athletic. All I do is walk or bike on my home equipment. I play a little golf, and go to the Pilates studio three times a week. But then I have to remind myself that running a marathon is really for O’s. I do the type of exercises recommended in LY4YT for B’s. I'm OK.
