Whenever people say they need a reset physically, I feel like it’s often followed by:
A.) A juice cleanse (or something to the effect) and / or
B.) This strange idea that they feel they need to, in some way, torture themselves with what the perceive as horrible foods (or liquified variants)
Why is that?!
I had quite a laugh at this meme because it’s definitely a pervasive attitude. The truth is, though, it’s a little bit like drinking poison, getting sick, and then going right back to the same baseline. If it’s painful…it isn’t going to work long-term!
If kale…or other less-mainstream food items…aren’t your thing, it’s OKAY not to go that route. We want to set you up for success, after all!
I’ve never been great about sharing food. In fact, I tend to get incredibly defensive and downright dirty when it comes to all things edible (provided I want them…)
Not going to lie, I’m like a food ninja and anyone eyeing what I want is considered the enemy. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone took a photo and my face looked like this. . .
I know self-shaming is a horrible thing but…it’s full-on psychotic if you ask me…
I have a friend who actually does forget to eat. All the time. I couldn’t imagine it because I’m constantly thinking of food! I have snacks in the car, I take snacks on trips…hell, half my suitcase is Boom Chika Pop popcorn, chicken jerky, almonds, peanut butter crackers, apples and chia bars when I go away!
So yeah…this is totally me…
Frustrating it may be at times, I suffer from Misophonia – that’s just the reality. I also have more generalized sensitivity to noise and to light – fun stuff in a crazy, overly stimulating world! I try not to let on too much, but anyone close to me knows how extreme it can be (and it isn’t something I can control.)
I love my heavy metal, and I love light streaming into a room…but sometimes noise and light can be too much, and I either need a much darker “sanctuary” or I need ear plugs. Or both! I certainly have endeavored to desensitize over time but it’s just something I’ve had to resign myself to…
But that goddamn microwave beep. . . Microwave tones at ALL…they drive me nuts! And I’m always steaming vegetables, making eggs, or reheating my chicken so it isn’t like I have choice! Still…there’s always preemptively stopping the countdown so I don’t have to listen to a MULTITUDE of beeps in succession (yes, nails-on-a-chalkboard for this chick!)
I almost fell out of the chair laughing at this one. It’s almost exactly like Pinterest when there are incredibly, and frankly abnormally graceful, recipe results with an “easy recipe” paired with it… Doesn’t happen. ISN’T that simple, people.
Nice try with the “simple” breakfast bull too.
