Mind Over Tummy.
I am not much of a breakfast person but if someone were to make it for me I will not refuse (hope ur reading this honey..lol) Though I am more partial to than bread (pei a e masagi, ISA!)
I am more a lunch-dinner type of person, though growing up I've had "the breakast is the most important meal of the day" message drilled into my head not only @ home but also in school. I know this is true, it can start out your day really well. Good for your digestive system, you won't have to pig out so much during lunch or dinner rah rah rah but old habits die hard. Especially if you don't want to give 'em up.
Sometimes I play mind games with myself. In my head I envision what I want to eat (nothing extravagant) and then pretend that it is exactly what I will have, just to get my taste buds going.
The down part is that usually what I end up eating is a far cry from what I imagined but still the process was fun (or not!)
Today however, I thought about what I want to eat as compared to what my husband would prefer (but isn't getting) just to vary my routine. So here we go.
I am hungry and this is what's on my mind.
My husband is hungry and this is probably what's on his mind.
I'd settle for a hot dog with all the yummy fillings, smothered in lots of mustard and ketchup.
I'm sure he'll be just right, eating a super sized pizza by himself.
Wouldn't mind spaghetti and meatballs.
He'd flip for some of that local sausage we have back in Samoa.
I'd be ok with a big whooper and fries from Mac D's
Malolo would forgo all that for a juicy grilled steak
I'd eat anything (well almost anything) and wash it down with some cold and refreshing iced tea. Malolo would eat just about everything and
finish it off with some fresh OJ
Now that's out of my system, I will now proceed to the kitchen, check the fridge and see what we have and whip up whatever, coz now I am no longer hungry I am starving. Maybe this game is not so great after all the mind is definately being taken over by the tummy. This is what happens when the weather plays up everything else goes haywire.
