You ate WHAT?

Recently I was on the zen habits site and I clicked over to his food journal found in this post.  To be perfectly honest, I was a little surprised after reading through his list.  In my mind he subsists on broth, veggies and the occasional fruit, this makes no sense of course since I read his blog regularly and know he likes his red wine and gelato.  However, my mind has a tricky way of putting people, like Leo, on little pedestals of perfection, which is silliness – we are all just doing the best we can right?!

That said, I feel bad about my judge-y ways, to be fair I documented my own eating habits for a week.  It’s the first time I’ve done a food journal, it’s pretty enlightening, especially the week below.  With my husband out of town looks like I still revert back to my old college stand-by of cereal for dinner, ah the ease of it.  And my PMS causes more sweet cravings than I realized.  Oh look at me trying to justify – It’s far from healthy sometimes, but it’s the real deal – greasy spoon diner, green smoothies and all!

*I drink water all day long and unless noted otherwise and with every meal.
