"Is it possible to have too much character?"

you'll all be surprised that the boyfriend doesn't think ice cream sandwiches are a healthy breakfast choice. which is just crazy obviously because, hello, calcium. and i bet they waved those cookie outsides near some grain at some point so who's the one rushing to rash judgements and making poor decisions? ha. err. it's friday, a girl has to celebrate. it's amazing what i can convince myself of at 6 o'clock in the morning. i didn't take a coke with me, which is a small victory, because it's hard to fight off the carbonated chaser of an ice cream breakfast. one battle at a time.

i have a big long list of things i need to do today, and this weekend, and in general. today i need to hit the grocery store for food i won't have to rationalize eating. this weekend i need to fill my freezer with things i can grab for work that have protein and are good for me. and i need to dust off the pilates mat atleast once. in general i need to start drinking more water. i haven't been drinking enough at work or at home for silly reasons. at work we drink bottled and we were running low. at my old place i drank tap water all the time. big glasses of it and i'm not dead. there's no reason i can't drink tap at work when we're running low.

we're drinking bottled water at home too because we haven't tested the well yet (apparently you have to wait a while to get an accurate reading, so we use it for showers and dishes but we drink bottled). so it's that much more difficult to drink my big glasses. i mean, i have to open the fridge and everything. and i have to pay for it. it's amazing how little it takes for my mind to see an obstacle and run the other way. i need to think about it more and make sure i have a glass or water around all the time like i did at the old place. it worked for me there and i can make it work for me at the new house if i keep my mind on it.

that's my list. i think it's pretty do-able. habit making things if i keep at it every week. and stop buying ice cream sandwiches. clearly i can't handle the responsibility.

I am laughing at your breakfast! I do not eat traditional breakfast foods either. Aren't oreos a form of calcium also. I mean that filling in the middle has to count for something right?

MayQueen said...

The middle is made out of lard!

Amy said...

not oreos too. that's just not fair.

When I was in high school, my friend Maria (skinny, glamourous, pale) would take an ice cream sandwich, and a Devil Dog. She would surgically separate the Devil Dog, discarding the creamy filling, and remove the cookie parts from the ice cream sandwich. She then would transfer the ice cream to the devil dog, and enjoy.

her favorite after-school snack was pork chops. I have never met another skinny woman like Maria.

i could never give up the cookie parts of the sandwich, they're integral.

Anissa said...

Trans-fat and lard? Yum!

what a fascinating modern age we live in.

I just totally cracked up at "hello....calcium!"

I use the same rationalization techniques as you do -- they're always based on things that I consider to be somehow out of my control, like work running out of bottled water, etc. It's nice to know I'm not the only one...
