I’ve always had what seemed to be an illicit love affair with burgers. It was a favorite food probably upon exiting the womb. I can guiltily unashamedly say that I have enjoyed the love hate relationship with mammoth burgers, I’m talking juicy squirt you in the eye burgers, for much of my life.Way back in the day, I would make my way to the greasiest fast foodiest place and treat myself to that said burger and then berate myself for not adhering to my vigilant diet NAY plan for healthful eating. I would then give up on anything healthy, period, and just throw in the towel, thinking:What’s the use? It’s over!I would then willfully resort to death by cookies!I have to tell you having the new understanding that I have, has really helped me greatly in times such as these.  This new understanding whispers sweetly and lovingly to me when I am hard on myself, she says:

Hey you! Know what? You’ve exercised most days this week

OR

 “X” amount of calories is probably a lot to have in a single meal, snack, treat or indulgence but coupled with your consistent healthy eating resolve on most days and how you will probably have a healthy Spicy Sesame Salmon Bowl for dinner, I think you earnedtheburger this week.

So the moral of this story is: Eat Junkfood…I mean mostly healthfully and mindfully, live a life of wellness and be happy! A life of wellness sometimes includes indulgent treats and just so you know I’ve learned this from repeated failure.
