Y2 Day 4: Given All the Options, I Choose "Lazy"

 The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men

Gang aft agley . . .

Plan A: Rise early, walk and run and sweat, and set a healthy tone for the rest of the day.

Plan B (aka The Chosen): Stay up till 1:11 a.m. watching Buffy, sleep later than intended, allow daughter to sleep till 9-something, bag exercise entirely, and set a tone of indolence, sloth, and crap-eating for the rest of the day.

Seriously. My lunch was caramel corn. 

At one point today I ate a nectarine, and that's about all you can say for me. I feel fat and sluggish.

I did, however, take in three pairs of shorts (because I really am so much thinner despite my fat day) and tighten the straps on my newest bathing suit (which is also too big), and the kids and I cleaned the whole house (I even did Husband's chores!) and did a load of laundry, so it wasn't all navel-contemplation and high-cal foods.

Just . . . a fair amount.

Wow — 7:22 p.m. and it's near dark. The days are already so much shorter!

I'm going to take a hot bath and get to bed early, and tomorrow I will rise and greet the day with a brisk three-mile walk. That is my vow. I'm also baking caramel-cashew bars because we're invited to a Labor Day picnic — but I won't eat any, I am completely sweeted out right now. And perhaps I won't drink any wine either. Husband will be back; I expect to be intoxicated with happiness.

Man, Buffy is addictive. It should be a controlled substance. Who can stop at just one episode??

    Really, I WAS planning to do my chores when I got back... Really!


    1. No, no, baby — you save all your energy for some sweet wife-lovin' upon your return! (But you could comment on the clean and shiny kitchen floor — that's always a turn-on...)
