So often, we get caught up in our day to day routines and forget to appreciate the little things in life. In my Little Things series, I like to honor the details that are making me happy today. Now, I ask my readers to send me a photo and note about what is making THEM happy today.
“For me, eating “right” is an ongoing daily battle. I struggle with what I know I should eat and what my body is used to eating. It seems more often than not, I fail. But I keep dusting myself off and trying again!
This morning marked the first day of my attempt to eat a piece of fruit before I stick anything else in my mouth. Easy, right? I actually sat at my desk, scared of an apple. I was convinced I wouldn’t like it (as if I haven’t ever had an apple before!) or that I’d be hungry 2 minutes later.
But I dutifully cut it up, spread a bit of peanut butter on each slice and *gasp* I actually enjoyed my light breakfast. Not only that, but it kept me satisfied until almost lunchtime.
A plate of apples made me smile today. Go figure.
I blogged about the full “traumatic” experience of trying to eat the apple here.
