Can I just do nothing today?
The laws of physics say that if the kids are out of school and we don't have to be anywhere, it's okay to hang out in our pajamas until noon and eat oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for breakfast. I read it on the internet.
I mean, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies do have oatmeal in them so they might as well be breakfast, right? Right.
Oh, holidays. You destroy my motivation to stay fit. I am a 100% bonafide sucker for baked goods. And, since it's not summer and I'm not exactly wearing bathing suits and booty shorts on a regular basis, I don't take the whole eating healthy and working out thing so seriously. That's what big, chunky sweaters are for! To warm. And to hide.
Don't get me wrong, I was on a total healthy fitness awesomesauce kick through summer and fall and I fully intend on returning to it. I've been known to jump on a scale and scream out, "Yeeeeah, Bitch! Take that!" when I see a pretty number looking back at me. That hasn't happened in a few weeks. Scale and I, we have a love/hate relationship. We're about to have a falling out.
And for the record, isn't that a pretty number on that random picture of a scale above. It's not my pretty number, and if winter has its way with me and the flavored, sweet breads keep finding their way into my mouth, this number will be merely a picture on my blog.
So I'm admitting it. I'm lazy today. I tried to have actual oatmeal with craisins for breakfast and ended up with a belly full of apple danish. I stayed in bed with my son in our jammies until...well, I'm still there.
There's nowhere I'd rather be, actually. I'm embracing the laziness.
Besides, what better way to spend the last day on earth?
