Month of Mindfulness Day 12: Cue The Unbuttoned Jeans

Hi everyone,

Sorry this is so late and technically already tomorrow, but I have good reason for writing so late.

Earlier, I was having a bad day with food-not mindfully eating-and I honestly just didn’t want to write about it.

Sometimes I just get sick of writing about the same thing and the same feelings. I didn’t want another post about how mad I am at myself for eating ice cream out of the jar or not working out. I just wasn’t in the mood today.

I knew I was going out tonight with my friends and I wanted to experience that and then write afterward so I can put my whole day into perspective.

So, me and my friends went out. And we ate. We ate amazing food. Amazing. We had amazing drinks. We had an amazing time. We joked about unbuttoning our jeans at the restaurant and ordering everything on the menu.

If I was listening to Ed right now, I would truly believe him when he says that only undisiplined and careless people eat to the point that they need to sometimes (this doesn’t happen often) need to unbutton their jeans.

But he’s wrong. Ed is wrong. Everyone has those nights-especially after a night out with friends. My two other friends had that tonight too.  They even laughed about it.

So cue the unbuttoned jeans Ed…I might not feel great about it, but I know tonight that I am not the only one in a food coma after a Saturday night out. And I would rather have that than the opposite and being home alone.

For all of us who have ever needed to unbutton our jeans after a delicious meal…hello life.

  1. Shira, I liked this blog because unbuttoning the top button of jeans to enjoy a good meal is a time honored tradition. You can rebutton the next day as you get back to mindful eating and you have achieved balance and had a good time too.
    As I sit at my table, I’m watching 2 quail and their 3 tiny babies on my patio. The babies are much smaller than baby chicks. What a wonderful way to start my day. Hope yours is wonderful too.

  2. the best is to un botton while you are in the resturant !!!! you are doing out standing that was a good way to explain how good u r doing . you are enjoying the real good things that life can offer ABBA
