Kare and Mare: Surrendering

Kare and Mare 31

Good day, everyone,

Well it seems that Kare surrendered to the calling, so to speak.  I think most of us have done it at times.  But I also think the best thing is to just enjoy it when you do, and learn to pick your battles, even with food.  Because if you’re eating something indulging with the stress of guilt attached, then the stress is going to be more unhealthy than what you’re eating.

So if you’ve been good about eating healthier than be encouraged to continue 🙂  And if you treat yourself, make sure you really enjoy it and it’s good quality…then the indulgence will satisfy you more.  Hmm, I think I hear my name; I’m hoping it’s those yummy organic strawberries.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

      The insight’s come from so many times of feeling guilty while I’m trying to indulge, and not enjoying it. So what was the point? I also think we should never use an indulgence for ‘punishing’ ourselves because we feel stressed about something. We should eat a goody because we really feel like something yummy. We’d probably do it less that way. Don’t you think?

    Hello Marianne, I have been enjoying a good catch up on your blog. I love your Kare and Mare cartoons! So very cute! I have had a smile on my face sine I logged on : ) I am on the same wavelength as you as far as eating things you maybe should not. Your advice to eat and feel good about it is fab! I agree! Even if you suffer, at least you didn’t suffer twice! lol!
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and saying “hello” : )

    LOL! I laughed so hard. I love the name of the cookies, “Good -N- Fudgy!” LOL! THAT and the look on Kare’s face says it all. You are right, Marianne, it’s best not to carry the guilt with you. Inspire to do best the next time.
    Thank you, dear friend, for A Little Something Extra! You’re such a Goddess!!
    Love and HUGS!
