I Don't Want to Hear It!

Sticking fingers in my ears -- neah neah neah . . .

I couldn't help it -- this picture really cracked me up. But it only sort of goes with this blog post, so . . . pretend, okay?

Scouts was pretty wild this last week, with two new boys and different personalities clashing. Afterwards I made pizza and put a bit too much cheese on it, which I know I shouldn't have done, but I did it anyway because I was feeling a) sorry for myself and b) stupid and I woke up the next morning with the sniffles. It has sapped all my brain power and I haven't been capable of coherent thought ever since. What's worse is that I haven't been able to write a decent blog for Families.com since then, either, so I'm a day and a half behind. (Yikes!)

I do have a point here . . .

Taking care of our bodies isn't just good for us physically, it's good for us mentally as well. If I want to stay in top writing condition, I need to avoid the temptation of cheese. (Here would be where I stick my fingers in my ears.) I love cheese. Cheese is delicious. But cheese is not my friend. Cheese does not love me, despite my feelings of devotion toward it. Food never can love you back -- it's very selfish that way.

So, if I want to write my best, I need to limit the cheese. Hey, I'm getting off chocolate (did y'all see my ticker? We're sneaking up on three weeks! Bwaaahaaahaa!)

Now, back to what I was doing, which was putting my kids to bed, which I'm procrastinating because it's a dreadful process, but I sure do like the results . . .

LOL Tristi. I'm sorry cheese has been such a disappointment to you.

There's plenty of other yummy foods in the sea, or on the earth, you just have to get back in there and keep on eating. You'll find something else that you love that treats you the way you deserve ;)

Mangos love me, and they're orange too. Maybe there's hope . . .

But as far as that food in the sea, you can keep it! I hate seafood!

I had to dump my subversive boyfriends Ben & Jerry. I love them, but they really don't care about what I look like or how I feel.

Tristi Pinkston said...

Yeah, Jen, when you love them and they don't love you, it's an unhealthy relationship.

I had to get rid of Mr. Hershey and Mr. Ghiradelli. It was also unrequited love.

I love the photo... I might have to borrow it for a post in one of my blogs soon!

Yeah, where DID you get that photo? It speaks volumes.

Have you tried goat cheese from the health shop, by the way? It digests easier, and in small quantities is just as yummy. Good for you, getting off all that delish bad stuff. Now that's will power.
