Because it's a new year I thought perhaps I should get onto some sort of diet plan or fitness plan that involved more than just walking to the video store to rent Season 2 of LOST (yes, I've committed and because everyone said it wasn't that good I had ZERO expectations and totally thought the hatch would be full of dead people or zebras or something dumb, so now I'm loving it, even if it's a bit slow). Anyway, I've noticed that all my clothes are shrinking even when I don't wash them and we have a beach wedding coming up and well, I don't have to explain why I don't want to wear one of those bathing suits with the ruffled bum to the beach, do I? So anyway, I thought about doing more hot yoga (when I say more, I mean, more than once every month or two) but one thing I don't like is that if I just did my hair then it gets totally sweaty so basically I have to wash it daily, which is really quite drying on your hair, and who wants dry hair? Do I want to sacrifice frizz for a fit body? So then I thought maybe I should just stop eating chocolate and candy on a daily basis but then on Friday I was all set to eat a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner (because that's a totally healthy dinner, especially when you use processed cheese slices) while watching LOST. But then, the Hubs said, Let's have pie for dinner, but I didn't really feel like pie so he had pie and I instead had marshmallow-crunch ice cream and chocolate chip cookies. And then I realized that I can commit to eating bad food and not working out much better than I can to eating salad and doing yoga every day. So I'm going to go with that. After all, I think the new year should be about recognizing one's strengths and improving them.
