i enjoy watching television. however, every channel that i go to there is an advertisement for food. now, this isn't new news but it is astonshing in regards to the mixed messages we get.
one commercial will be about healthy eating and drugs to take for the ailments we have and how to lose weight in 10 seconds or less with no work and no exercise. we can eat what we want and still lose.
there will be another commercial that advertises all of the latest food creations. they look so good. fried foods, food with cream sauces, desserts, vegetables with cream sauces and so on and so on.
then there will be another documentary about the pitfalls of eating the wrong foods and how our society has grown obese over so many years and decades.
what are we to do? no wonder everyone is confused. when i see an advertisement for shrimp, lobster, fried chicken my mouth waters. i remind myself that i am working on becoming healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. but, i am tempted by the advertisement. i have never been a person who ate a lot of sweets. now when i see cake or pie or ice cream i want to run out and buy it.
yes, we are responsible for actions. yes, we do need to take better care of ourselves. buy how in the #$** are we supposed to stand all of the pressure.
just an observation. enjoy your journey.
