If You Think You Can, You Can
Apparently Lindsay and I think we can. The collection jar at Cosmo Cricket is empty....... those poor charities. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, read this entry.)
It has taken it's toll...... at least on me. I had a dream Saturday night. I was at a party and someone offered me a treat. It looked like a Reese's Peanut Butter cup, but it was white chocolate on the outside and had gooey milk chocolate on the inside (I think this was inspired by a bag of candy Lindsay's wife gave my husband...... it's a conspiracy I tell you). Anyway, in my dream I temporarily forgot our challenge and I took the candy....... opened it...... scooped the gooey chocolate off the wrapper and put it in my mouth. As soon as I had done this, I see Lindsay coming over to talk to me. Suddenly I remember the challenge and realize he is going to find me with chocolate in my mouth. I swallow quickly. Put my head down and try to get away. I remember being so worried he would be able to smell chocolate on my breath. It turned into one of those panic dreams where you have to get away or it will be bad.
Then, last night, I had to close myself in my office while my husband made chocolate chip cookies with my kids. But, while I was there I started this journal of my "Health Nut" experience. It is fun to do, has me motivated to keep my goal and will be fun to look back on. I thought I'd share it in hopes of inspiring the rest of you hopefuls into documenting your progress toward better things! If you think you can, you can!!
PS: The prize drawing below is still open. The winner will be announced tomorrow morning...... but maybe even more exciting...... you'll get to meet Larry the Temp.
PPS: I asked Eric to photograph these for me. He thought it would be funny to use a fork to hold the journal open. Ha ha ha.
