This blog post is coming at you at 3 am (Well that is when I wrote it..)
If anyone is looking for a crash diet to get those last 10 pounds off — I have the perfect solution for you .
Just get your tonsils out . You won’t be able to eat anything .. seriously .
I myself was struggling a bit with putting the fork down until God intervened. As you may know, I recently had my tonsils out.
People love to talk you up when you’re naturally feeling nervous before this surgery . They’ll say things like:
“But you’ll get to eat all the ice cream in the world after”
Yeah, which actually translates to :“You’re actually going to die a slow painful death and ice cream is not at all involved”
“You’ll just have a sore throat for a few days then you’ll be fine “
Which actual translates to “you’ll feel like you are swallowing knives for at least 10-14 days after surgery “
For anyone thinking I am being a baby or that these things are inaccurate , I implore you to get your tonsils out yourself so we can compare notes of it “not being that bad “. I’ll hit you with the “until you walk a mile in my shoes” and “throwing stones at glass houses “metaphors real quick .
Ice cream gets all the credit , but I’d truly like to thank the makers of Jello, Popsicles , Ramen noodles, and mashed potatoes for keeping me nourished during these difficult days .
Now that that rant is over , on a serous note this extra time to think (between Netflix binges) has got me pondering what I want to accomplish this year when I am feeling better.
It’s no secret I’ve been in a bit of a rut even following the new year resolution frenzy . So I’ve been trying to think back the last time I felt good and had a better mindset .
The me I want to be again had goals and felt a sense of accomplishment after achieving them . My biggest things were the Spartan races and getting stronger physically at the gym so I want to head back and focus on those things instead of just weight loss .( Though, weight, please feel free to come off )
That being said I think I want to do something crazy like train for a marathon (even more crazy considering I truly hate running ) or getting my Spartan trifecta under my belt .
After discussing some of these big goals with someone, they challenged me by saying why pick just one ? Do them all . I didn’t have a good come back so, that’s what I am going to do.
I am going to set some big goals to smash— and smash em . Look out 2018 I’m coming for you . What are some of your goals for this year ? Share them with me ! I am trying to grab another popsicle and get inspired over here .
As always if you made it this far thanks for reading ! Love y’all
