My Torturous Week

By Avila Ashland

I’m going be giving up Chick-Fil-A for this week since it’s something I have multiple times a week and fast food is a luxury that many of people don’t have.

Day 1

I really was fine today, I didn’t crave Chick-FIl-A at all since I had it yesterday and I didn’t feel as if it affected me in any way.

Day 2

I didn’t notice a difference in myself today either. I ate at work so I wasn’t hungry for the rest of the day.

Day 3

My boyfriend worked today and I really wanted to go in to visit him, but I didn’t because I knew I’d want the food even more.

Day 4

I wanted Chick-Fil-A really bad today and my free medium fry expired so I’m upset.

Day 5

I still want Chick-Fil-A, but I know I’ll make it through the day considering there’s only one day left.

In my time of fasting Chick-FIl-A I learned that having such a strong craving for fast food all the time is probably unhealthy. Some of my frustrations were that opportunities like coupons for free went by and not being able to visit my boyfriend at work made me sad. I would definitely say that it got worse as the week went on considering the longer I went without it the more I craved it. I learned that I’m too attached to Chick-FIl-A.

After going a week without eating my favorite food I was thrilled to go have it again after school today. I think it’s interesting how often I crave it and it definitely does hold some kind of power over my life. It  bothers me how often I eat it considering it’s a fast food and it’s not good for me. Though after not having it for a week it was just a fun thing to be able to go have again. I do think we take many things in life for granted and that being able to go pick up a quick and hot ready meal is a luxury.
