There are some things that are good:
Salted caramel mochas from Starbucks (oh, how they suck me in with their holiday drinks!)
Chick flicks (I conned Matty B into watching “What to expect when you’re expecting”. He expected it to be lame. He was right. I hate it when he’s right.)
Music by Michael Jackson (hate all you want, but when PYT comes on my iPod, I run faster!)
And then there are some things that are good for you:
Flossing. Not super fun. Sometimes hurts. Boring. But you’ve gotta take care of your gums.
Good literature. You know, the stuff you have to think about while you read it. I’m reading Fahrenheit 451 to my Jr. High English class. They are so confused, but it’s so good for their brains.
Melons. All kinds- so good for you. All kinds- I can’t STAND! If a watermelon is really sweet and super cold, I won’t gag when I eat it, but honey dew or cantaloupe (which one is musk melon, cause that name weirds me out…?) I just can’t handle them. The flavor, the texture, everything.
Thankfully, though, there are some things that are good AND good for you!
Baths (especially with bubbles)
This oatmeal- good x2!
“Good for you” because two of the main ingredients are carrots and zucchini. Yes, for breakfast. This will rationalize the salted caramel mocha you will have later on today…
Oats are cooked with some raisins (to plump them up) and then the veggies are added.
“Good” because you throw in fresh pineapple, coconut and walnuts with just a smidge of brown sugar.
This fulfilled #16 of my 30 day health challenge: eat a healthy breakfast with four food groups.
I leave you with one more picture, just because they’re so darn cute…
Good AND good for me…:)
