Daily Eats & Observations ~ August 27th

Lately my usual eating schedule has been a bit "off," but I find that when I do reach for food, there is nothing off limits. I basically eat whatever I want. And I'm okay with the fact that I'm not a size 0. A size 6 is fine, and actually is what most men prefer anyway! (So ladies, why the hell are we killing ourselves to be so damn skinny?!) Eating whatever you want is not necessarily a good thing, but for me I find that it is. Pizza, pasta, bagels, cheesecake... and I'm still losing or maintaining my weight! Who'd have guessed?! lol Don't worry though, I haven't completely lost my mind. I still eat some healthy things... fruit, veggies, etc. I think it really comes down to how much you eat, not what you eat. But I think I've finally gotten to a good place for myself, where I'm comfortable really eating what I want, and I'm not afraid of getting "fat." I'm actually eating now how I've always dreamed of being able to eat. After spending years afraid of so many foods and being unhappy about it all, I feel like I'm finally able to let go...

Here's a pic I took of myself today on my MacBook...


I went downtown early this afternoon, and had lunch at Pomodoro's (famous for their vodka pizza :). As you can see I'm really slipping when it comes to remembering to take pictures of what I eat! I was half way through when I remembered! lol I guess I was really hungry! ;)


After lunch I went to my second home-- the Bowery Whole Foods Market. This is hands down, the most beautiful grocery store in all of New York City. The isles are HUGE, it is never too crowded, they have a great selection, and the place is spotless!


I couldn't help but get on of their fresh baked vegan chocolate chip cookies!


And here's a pic I got of Peanut (mid blink! lol) while he was playing on my bed this afternoon.

I couldn't agree more, it's a great feeling to be able to listen to your body and feed it what it needs without feeling bad or worrying about your weight.

LOVE this post! I definitely agree that listening to your body is the best way to health...if it wants pizza, it wants it for a reason so eat what you love and do what makes you happy.

I haven't been to that WF- looks great! Have you checked out the new UWS one yet?

Insideiamdancing ~ The new upper west side Whole Foods just opened today actually! So I haven't been there yet. I doubt I'm going to trek up there to go to it though... I live near 3 Whole Foods as it is!
