CRASH AND BURN!
For those of you who thoughtfully wrote to congratulate me on my resisting the temptation to snack inappropriately while alone at the cabin…not so fast! It turns out that I was better at resisting temptation alone than I am with a crowd. I ate a terribly unhealthy breakfast this morning, then pledged to eat smart the rest of the day. Then came lunch…failed! Then came cookies and milk…failed miserably! And now do I feel like exercising? Not in a million years! The cruddy, sluggish feeling that has overtaken me is akin to the way drunks feel after an all night binge at the bar. Basically, I have eaten myself right into yet another “fat-guy-hangover”! Question: Why do people get drunk and party all night when they know they’re going to feel like dog crap all the next day? Answer: I don’t know, but we fat people do the exact same thing—our drink of choice…Syrup-N-Grease!
Resolution: I’m going to pry my grease-drunk butt off this chair and do some physical activity even though it feels like the last thing in the world I would ever want to do. At least I might be able to get the crud flowing in the right direction.
I hate to come on line and post about days like today, but for those of you laboring under the delusion that this is magically easy for me, and unexplainably harder for you…now you know! This is war! We’re all in the trenches together and the enemy’s shells are raining down on me as well as you. But we can’t stop! Bad nutrition days are still in my future but they are going to become fewer and farther in-between! Right now is a new hour and tomorrow is a new day and I am swearing to you that I will make it great; that I will eat the right things and do the right kinds of activities.
Please hold me to it!!! If you read my blog tomorrow and don’t feel that I toed-the-line, I expect (NEED) to hear from you! If you feel like coming down hard on me today…I wish you would. Even if you’ve just had a lousy day and want to take it out on me…do it! At least your frustration will be taken out on a guy who needs his butt kicked more often than he’s getting it! Oh, and thank you in advance for kicking my trash!
