As with many challenges, there comes a time (or many) where you may reach a crossroads of sorts. You can choose the more difficult path that will likely take you to your goal, or you can say, “fuck it” (pardon the language) and take the path that leads to cupcakes. Sometimes, you don’t realize you’re on the path to cupcakes until it’s almost too late, and the question becomes, should I double back? Can I still turn around?
I invited a new friend over this evening for Taco Tuesday. I had a cocktail with dinner, a cocktail post dinner, and – thanks to my wonderful husband who took care of the kids and clean-up so I could continue hanging out with my friend – a third cocktail for good measure. I had a good time.
But, way too many episodes of Netflix’ Nailed It later, I’m exhausted and I have a slight headache. I’ve reached my crossroads. Do I follow the path that leads to a 5:00 am wake-up and workout? Do I follow the path that leads to sleeping in and no workout? Or do I just say “screw it, ” take some ibuprofen, and bake some cupcakes? I don’t know.
On the bright side, I hit my step goal. I failed to log all my meals today, but I got all my steps in. That’s the whole point of this challenge anyway, right?
“Final” step count: 15,469 (plus whatever steps I take between now and when I finally go to bed)
