BLC - Day 11, Yay Day Pay Day!

Oh pay day. It is the key to all wonderfullness. So often I feel myself waiting till payday. Isn't it unfortunant that so many things we want to do are impossable without money? Sigh. I'm not saying that money is all there is, but let's face it, it is a big chunk of the pie.

For example, healthy food. It cost $$$! Yesterday I went and bought $210 worth of healthy healthy food! Veggies and chicken, it is very expensive. I almost had a heart attack watching it all ring up. 'Surely it wont' be more than $150?' I thought. YEH RIGHT!
But then yesterday I realized that food is so worth the cost. My mom called me because her blood sugar was at 500!!!! My husband did some research on if it was even possible for blood sugar levels to get that high. Well it is, and when it does get that high then you can literally go blind over night, it is also very likely that your body is going to simply shut down..meaning death, literally. Freaking crazy!

I talked to my mom, and she said that it wasn't a big deal. She just had eaten a ton of absolute CRAP because she was about to have a root canal and was worried she wouldn't be able to eat for a while.

How many times have I done this? Maybe not to this extent, but I think that I won't be able to eat for a while so I binge. This was seriously life or death, and my mom was willing to give it up for a candy bar!? And how can I honestly be surprised, I can see me doing that under the same circumstances.

Food is a life or death thing, that is what it comes down to. My mom sent me an email asking for food advice. She asked if it was 'okay' to drink Diet Coke. No it isn't okay!! The stuff in most diet sodas causes CANCER!

Oh, you may be thinking that is HIGHLY unlikely. But let's say someone put a gun in your hand and said, there is only a 1 in 1,000,000 chance this gun will go off. So why don't you stick it in your mouth and pull the trigger? Would you do it? What if the gun was made out of chocolate? Would you do it then?

This may seem extreme, but I'd rather be extreme and NOT take the 1 in a 1,000,000 chance. I am worth more than that.
Wow, that is totally not where I meant that post to go, lol. But it feels good and right.
Thanks for reading, and have a good day! :)
