But yesterday I kind of had a breakthrough. I was driving home after having a TERRIBLE day, and I was planning on running to Walmart to get a big pizza for dinner. And as I was driving, my cooler head got a word in edgewise and said "when are you going to stop self destructing EVERY time you have a bad day?"
Well I don't know random voice of reason. Where the hell did you come from?
It must have been "Fit Jess" on my corner, while "Fat Jess" was like PIZZAAAAAA!!!!
It made me think. When AM I going to stop? The last time I had a bad day I found myself in the Krispy Kreme drive through with a box of 3 doughnuts. This is definitely a pattern.
Then Fit Jess yelled "NOW YOU FRUITCAKE!"
Good call Fit Jess.
So she reminded me of a picture my friend Dara posted for dinner the other night of Salmon and Brussels sprouts and decided that is what we were having. I promptly drove to sprouts, picked up the goods and left for the same price as a pizza.
When I got home I got right to cooking and didn't feel like I needed to ruin my day anymore. I felt at peace with it. And holy crap it was delicious.
And now that you all think I am schizophrenic, my point is this. I am the person standing in my way. I am the one holding myself back. I just need to get out of my own way and start listening to Fit Jess more often, and I feel like I can actually meet my goals.
Tell me I am not the only person who has this problem. And tell me I am not the only one craving those damn brussels sprouts again from looking at this picture!
