I’m Chris P. Bacon.
The name is fitting, I’m sure you’ll come to understand. I’m a new contributor for B&B. Here I’ll be expressing my feelings, frustrations, highs, and lows surrounding my relationship with food. All kinds of food. The healthy kind of food. The not so healthy kind of food. The kind of food that not even running a 5k could make you forget about. I’ve never run a 5k…but I highly doubt it would make me want to forget about pizza… or bacon.
Sometimes I’m a hard core dieter. The kind of hard core dieter where cleanses are involved, pills, shakes, meal replacements, etc., you name it – I’ve probably tried it. Other times, I’m a binge eater. A serious binge eater where its Chinese take out for dinner, fast food for lunch, and leftover cake from a relative’s birthday celebration for breakfast.
Don’t get me wrong- I’d love to see myself in something less than a size 12 in my life time. But oh the struggle is real trying to find a place between happy and healthy when all I really want to do is eat macaroons.
I’m on this journey of balance. But for now, you’ll hear me bitch about needing to run but wanting that burrito a little bit more. I’ll get that six pack… one day.
