Road Trip

Stevensville, MD returning from another road trip.
My son and I are going on a road trip this weekend to visit some really special friends we haven't seen in quite a long time about 3 hours away.  I can remember so many road trips in my past that consisted of packing tons of food (sandwiches, candy, chips, sweets, etc.) and then eating throughout the entire trip.  It was a part of the trip I kind of looked forward to - permission to eat whatever I wanted - because it was a trip, afterall.  (I also chain smoked on trips when I didn't have my son with me.  I had a dream last night about smoking, must be because of this drive ahead of me.)

Anyway, we are going because we want to hang out with some pretty special people and just enjoy them.  I'll pack some healthy snacks, I might stop and grab some grapes, and all will be well.  It feels like FREEDOM to me to make a deliberate choice to eat healthy.  Some people think "dieting" or choosing healthy foods is a difficult task and stringent and too structured, etc.  But to me, choosing to be healthy and fit IS the freedom I have always wanted.  I don't feel enslaved by a driving compulsion to self destruct.

So I'm waiting for the freezing rain to turn to just plain rain and we're off.  A couple of refillable waters, some apples and trail mix, The Avett Brothers on the iPod and I'm good to go.  See you when I return.  ♥♥♥

Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
