Maybe I'm More Than Broken
I stopped at a place called My Fit Foods after several co-workers raved about their food. They do freshly prepared, packaged meals. Kind of like frozen entrees with out the frozen part. They are a bit expensive, but I was curious. And I know I need to eat better.
What I had forgotten was the near panic I have to fight when I buy a packaged meal. I have this fear that it won't be enough food. That I'll still be hungry when I'm done or that I'll need more protein or something. Then I start thinking that if I do, there is something wrong with me because normal people don't need more. Even worse is how I will sometimes overeat out of that fear. Something I've never shared with anyone. Ever.
Why am I sharing now? Damned if I know, but I felt like I should. So there it is.
BTW, the My Fit Foods meal was very tasty, but probably too pricey for me to buy on a regular basis. Which is sad because it was VERY healthy. I have health insurance that helps pay for the meds that I need to be healthy, but what do you do when eating healthy is so much more expensive than the alternative that you can't afford it?
But I guess maybe that's a topic for another post.
