Gluttony and Sloth

I was TEMPTED last night. It felt like I was purposely being tested by the healthy eating/clean eating/paleo gods.

Around 8 o'clock at night, the dog started going wild - which could only mean that a stranger had dared to come onto the porch. I let Chris deal with it, as I had no pants on (which is pretty typical for me in the later evening!). A pizza delivery man showed up at my door with hot pizza, wings and soda.

Fresh, hot, greasy, awful, delicious pizza!

And my mouth watered.

Of course, we didn't order it. He had the wrong address or something. But, in a moment of weakness and remembering the old days of gorging on greasy take-out, I really wished I *had* ordered that pizza!

Chris and I laughed for a little about it. I couldn't quite explain the wash of emotions that came over me. Desire! Guilt!

We have been eating so clean and so well. We talked about how it's almost like a religion and the pizza man was our temptation. Something that would lead us astray like fat little sheep ;D

The major sin of MY religion: ordering delivery.

It's the epitome of some bad behaviors: gluttony and sloth.

Gluttony - you can eat a whole bunch of crap that is terrible for you.

Sloth - all you have to do is pick up your tiny little phone and someone brings you food.

In the end, we passed the test with flying colors and remained true to the paleo and clean eating gods :) Definitely no sloth last night: we built a lawnmower, cleaned up the house, worked hard on our dinner AND we took a bike ride after dinner. And no gluttony, either: we ate chicken burgers with fresh tomatoes, sauteed onions and mushrooms, and avocado.

Ended the night with a cup of organic decaf coffee (if you are a big coffee drinker, consider going organic - coffee beans are one of the heaviest pesticide sprayed foods in the world) and a banana with a tbsp of sunflower butter.

My body thanks me for not sinning :)

Hope you are treating YOUR bodies like temples today!

Namaste.
