Attacking the Sugar Monster
Now that my mood is on track and I’m not fighting tooth and nail to avoid the big black hole, I’ve got to tackle the no-good terrible eating I’ve started.
Namely, I have to attack the Sugar Monster.
I’ve been eating tons of chocolate and cookies and snacking like you won’t believe. It’s not as though I’m hungry really. It’s just there and I’m bored and annoyed and I eat it. And then I feel like crap for eating it and I stare at my belly in the bathroom mirror and lament and promise that tomorrow will be better.
And then tomorrow comes and I eat chocolate.
So, today is Wednesday. From now (lunchtime), no more chocolate. No more.
Tonight I’m off to a cooking class at a company called Main Course. The class I’m taking is one called “The Modern Vegetarian”. Now neither The Boy nor I are vegetarian, but I figure it’s always good to have a repertoire of good meat-less meals for those who are on the meat-less path. My parents only eat Kosher meat (chicken and red meat) so it means that when I cook for them, it’s usually only fish or veggie. And The Boy doesn’t eat a lot of fish, so it would be good to have some veggie meals on hand.
Also, I love to cook. I love to try new things. And this looks like a good way to indulge this passion AND meet new people. Bonus, right?
I’m so so so excited (I just can’t hide it…). It’s a 2.5 hour class where we make a 3 course meal. They supply the ingredients (I hope they also supply containers to take it home) and we get to cook. Not watch someone else cook. Actually cook ourselves. And I’m hoping that the recipes are delicious AND healthy.
If this goes well, I’m going to sign up for a ton more classes for when I get back from Melbourne. We’re in Melbourne for 2 weeks from March 5 – 20 which will be AWESOME – seeing family, friends, organising wedding stuff. It’ll be a good break I think, even though I’ll be working straight through pretty much. Except for the weekend of my brother’s wedding of course. That would be wrong.
