Manicures - that's another thing. Women in NYC like they claim "they're expected; you HAVE to get them. Boo hoo." I never get manicures. I have never received a no-manicure ticket from the police, never been harassed, never even got a dirty look. None of my performance evaluations have ever said "She's good at her job but her hands look like hell! Don't give her a raise!"
Oh, and then there's the people who claim they don't have time to cook or exercise but can tell you exactly what happened on the last episode of whatever reality show people are watching these days.
Feeling less guilty now.
I've never bought in to that spoiled feeling or even "survivor's guilt" because my food bill is higher than other people's. I work hard to maintain my chosen lifestyle and reap the health rewards accordingly.
Here to eat and move like a caveman, not look or stink like one
well first off, you spending money contributes to the crap economy so...keep on spending!
second, everyone makes choices when it comes to money, the more you have (it's all relative) the more choices.
own your choices and move on. also appreciate that buy buying organic etc blah blah you are also supporting long term sustainable practices that, over time, are best for EVERYONE. organic/fair trade etc isn't only about nutrition, it's also about sustainable farming practices and supporting human beings and the world in general.
I don't feel guilty because I can't afford grass-fed beef and good quality meat. For the most part, I eat what the regular grocery-store carries. I don't think it's going to make a huge difference in my quality of health right now.
Taken to its logical outcome, you would start to feel guilty that you can eat while others can not. Guilt is the wrong emotion. Love yourself, take care of yourself to the best of your abilities, and then try and help those around you. You can do much more good in this world if you yourself are fit and healthy.
