I swear to God, it's a miracle I'm not 300 pounds.
Not only do I have a huge appetite (I am known for polishing off other people's plates). Much of the food I eat is full of fat, sugar and other bad things.
Just some of the junk food I've eaten in the past few days: French fries. Jelly-filled doughnuts. A Five Guys little hamburger (which was not so little). Coke Blak. Girl Scout "thin mints" cookies.
Thank god for a fast metabolism. Thank god for my daily 2.5-mile walk to and from the Metro subway system. Thank god I run.
I have also eaten more nutritious dishes this week, e.g. Thai ginger noodles with tofu and snap peas, and wok-seared chicken and broccoli. But I need to eat more healthfully in general.
Making it Official: So herewith, once again, for real, I am giving up doughnuts (very sad, I know) for yoghurt and granola. No more pizza (sob). No more fries. (Except on road trips. Road trips don't count.) I will eat a little less rice and other high-calorie carbs and imbibe more vegetables.
I will be more virtuous. At least gastronomically-speaking.
