A New Me
Waking up this morning I just want to lie in bed and be lazy, but my bladder has other plans. So I get up, take care of business, brush my teeth and comb my hair. The sweet smell of fried bacon is wafting up through the air duct and I head downstairs for breakfast.
Now, only a month ago, I would have dived into that beautiful plate piled high with crispy slices of still warm bacon. It was so tempting, but I resisted. I reached for a small bowl and poured a cup of cereal. And not just any cereal. This was one of those healthy brands – a mixture of twigs, sticks, bark, and whatever else was swept up from the forest floor. Crunchy. Yum. Ack!
I added a cup of coffee and a banana and my meal was complete. Well almost. I grabbed one piece of bacon and savored each and every bite. Oh Yeah!
