I don’t know why, but I’ve been craving gummy worms. It’s one of those things that you realize you haven’t had in the longest time, and all of a sudden you realize that you want some. Candy isn’t even something I eat that often these days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a junk-o-holic, but I have to be in the mood for candy. Too sweet, I think. Junk food, in general, though, is too tempting, and I really should cut back on some of it.
The older I get, the more I’m noticing how bad my eating habits really are. I’ve gotten in such a bad habit of eating mainly once a day. The rest of the time I snack. Unless I’m really hungry. Then I make an exception and actually make myself something to eat, usually for breakfast/lunch.That’s only part of my problem.
Mainly, ever since I was a kid, I’ve been picky about what I eat. Being my mom’s only kid, she let me get away with a lot as a kid. The problem is, it’s taken me so long to branch out and try different things. And the funny part of it is that even though I’m a LOT better than I used to be, there’s still a lot I’m picky about. It’s rather embarrassing actually. Makes me almost wish my mom would’ve tried harder with forcing me to eat more of a variety. Because it’s hard to change and it’s hard to try something new, when the something that you like sounds so much more appetizing.
Even though I’d say my eating habits are bad, I’ve also been learning that I’m not as bad as I thought. At least in comparison with some others. I know I’m picky, but when it comes to learning about others who are even worse than me, it kind of makes me take a step back and go, “Wow, and here I thought I had it bad.” Point is, as long as you’re eating something, it’s better than nothing. Apparently that’s what my doctor told my mother when she confronted him about my poor eating habits as a kid. Or something like that. As long as I had food in my belly I’d be okay. I just have to vary it up more now that I’m older. Another perk of growing up.
Anyways, I bought myself a bag of gummy worms today. Still love them ❤
