So drink Water! Water! Water! I knew it was going to be hot today, but I was still surprised this morning when I walked out my front door into a wall a stagnant, hot, wet air and I was still in the shade. At one point during my trip I passed a gas station and I could actually taste the gasoline in my mouth. Blehh!!!
You may recall my article from May 30 all about my definition of happiness. I promised a follow up article to let you know how things worked out. If you have not read that post you will not have a clue what I am talking about here. Well … a funny thing happened on the way to happiness. If that raccoon had been paying attention as I watched my favorite show (Game of Thrones) he would know that “If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention.”
So I may have mentioned that I let some gal measure me at the gym and she is going to do it again in 6 weeks so I am trying to smarten up and fly right now. Today I decided to try the Booster Juice “Spinach Is In It” smoothie ‘cause I am looking for things I can pick up to eat when I am in a bind and have nothing at the office. This is a prime time for me to binge on chocolate. I bought the 710ml size because I do that. I always order more than I can handle. Hey, I am only trying to deal with one of my issues at any moment. I’m eating some vegetables and my mom is nowhere near me waving a fork in my face! It’s a miracle!
This Fat Chick gal sure is arrogant! She disappears of the blog-o-sphere for a month and then comes back and thinks she can define happiness for everybody. No I am not back from vacation or some other amazing experience I have actually been just mopping along spending too much time at work and not enough time on myself. In fact in the spirit of being a mopey, grouchy pants I’m not going to share the ultimate secret of happiness, but I will tell you what made me happy today! Coyote piss!
So I’m eating chocolate. Why? Duh it’s there and it’s yummy! Well Ok here is the thing. I got rained on on the way to work and my hair has frizzed out. You may recall Rosanna Rosanna-Danna! I am cold and I left my jacket at home and the jacket hanging in my office doesn’t go with this outfit and it’s gloomy out and … So I picked up some milk chocolate with hazelnuts. Not a “snack-size”, “family-size”. You know I restarted my healthy lifestyle yesterday. I let the gal at the gym measure me and everything. She was kind enough not to yell out any of the numbers.
OK Dudes and Dudettes! No more moping around crying about the spring that never happened. I know I lost my blogging and well, confession time, also my fitness mojo there for a while. No more! It’s time to brush the snow off my garden gnomes and power-wash the cobwebs off my house and reinvent myself again. What is my most pressing issue right now? Laziness and lack of organization.
Guess what the weather forecast is for tomorrow? Ice pellets and snow! Gahhh! This spring, winter spring thing we are having is getting to me. I don’t like the spring, that is when my sleep patterns get all messed up. That is when I am constantly too cold then too hot. I need a good sleep and I am tired of going to bed cold and waking up in the middle of the night in a pool of sweat or waking up frozen after falling asleep comfortable. I say STOP! I like having different weather as much as the next guy but I don’t want to visit all four seasons in a single week.
This Fat Chick has trouble with the self-control particularly when it comes to junk food. I am very self-indulgent and I reward myself with sweets or crunchy salty food for every conceivable boo boo, emotional slight or even a win! I don’t have one bite ever. If I have one I have it all and then get some more. So I have to ensure I don’t take that first bite.That wait 5 minutes or 15 minutes or whatever thing doesn’t work for me either. After 15 minutes of waiting to see if I really want that chocolate I will be like a rabid dog and the binge that results isn’t pretty.
