Why does my brain immediately go to food? Like junky, bad for you food? I mean I love, LOVE eating healthy but reading this prompt, my mind went to ice cream and simple carb loaded pastries and desserts.
Clearly because that is my weakness? So, let’s just pretend for a moment, a rather glorious moment, that if I stuffed my face every morning, noon and night with eclairs and sundaes and chocolate cream pies. I would rule the world with my incredible amounts of super powers and equally incredible amounts of processed sugar flowing through my veins.
My tummy hurts just thinking about it. Ok, so maybe I don’t, in fact, want to rule the world. And actually another weakness has come to mind — I’m a people pleaser. Have I mentioned how I have recently embarked on a 30 day pastry-free cleanse in an effort to PLEASE all of my friends that have also chosen to suffer?
It’s a never-ending cycle, you guys. Just leave me alone with some sashimi and wine and nobody gets hurt.
