Hey folks! It’s been a week, hasn’t it?
Me, I’m still deciding on what level of terrible I am for helping 11 people eat 9 pies. Honestly, this is the kind of person I am: I went out, had a good time, had some great food, and met some good people. Yet my internal dialogue the last six days has been “Christ, that pie has ruined my life,” as if the bad eating habits over the holiday weekend have doomed me to a lethargic existence.
I know it’s not true, but I’m wired a certain type of way that requires that I remind myself that it’s not true.
So I decided there were two things I could do: one, decide that from now on all I’m going to eat is what I hunt and kill. Unfortunately I’m too much of a pansy, so that option’s out. So, instead, I’m going to give myself a resolution to stay on track with my work-outs, and also go get out and try new things.
Speaking of trying new things, here’s your one chance of the week to immerse yourself in something other than my rants.
THIS WEEK: Scrooging, leaking, book writing, overrating, and weight cutting. THIS…IS BLOGORAMA.
