Loving Food At Forty

It’s such a struggle to keep my weight at a decent place and love food. I never thought I would be someone who struggled with food choices and making good exercise choices, but I am. I find myself checking my scales daily to see what damage has been done from my prior night of drinking or eating. It’s crazy. I love food. I love rich, decadent meals. Cheese is so freaking yummy and so is wine. So, I have finally found a good balance for me and it takes some work, but still allows me to live my life and live it healthy. I worked all day Saturday and felt like I had been pretty good the week before, so when my sweet friends invited us to join them at an Indian restaurant that I had never been to before….I said “heck yes, we would love to go” So when I got off of work, I raced home, showered and put on a forgiving dress so I could enjoy the decadence of Indian food. We met them at a restaurant called Saffrons in Greensboro. It was fabulous. I went for the second piece of Naan, just because it may have been the best Naan I have ever eaten. I normally stick to the Chicken Tikka Masala because the flavors are just the best to me, but I ventured out when I heard the hubs order it. I figured I could have some of his to get my fix. I tried the Chicken Coconut and it did not disappoint. We also shared a great vegetable appetizer plate that had yummy samosas, fried cauliflower, and something with fried lentils that blew my mind. Yummy! It was a great meal with wonderful company and I did not feel guilty at all. Even when I downed a big Magic Hat #9 beer with it. What I have found is that if I deny myself all of the awesome food that I love, I will never make it. I end up over indulging eventually. It’s just harder at 40 if you do it all of the time, so I don’t. But when I do, I am Oh So Happy! Give yourself permission to try something new and decadent this week. You won’t regret it. Just take a little walk or run later and you’ll be okay.
