Lattes and mental gymnastics

My travel narrative is now 12 single-spaced pages in Microsoft Word. There are still two days left, I ran out of steam last Sunday, and I still need to describe the Vatican and the Appian Way. Simple! Of course everybody's over it already and I haven't even posted. Bummer-ific.

I hit a mini wall with my diet today when I decided I was sick of Lean Cuisine. I ate my Butternut Squash Ravioli through the tantrum, but I ate it sadly. So sadly. And when I was done I walked to Starbucks and got a non-fat, no whip grande pumpkin spice latte, which is not as good as a full fat, lots of whip, venti latte but suffices in a pinch.

Mexican food sounds really good right now.

Maybe I will eat six triscuits and a laughing cow cheese wedge instead.

That's as good, right? Stupid diet.

At the last Weight Watchers meeting the leader asked how many of us were in this for life. Pretty much everyone raised their hand but me. I'm taking this crap day by day, I am not all in for life.

Admitting that would crush my spirit, even if it's true.

Don't feel too bad about your trip narrative. I still need to have my Belgium photo album printed and it's a year later. Or, worse still, I am half-way through my European Backpacking scrapbook. And that's from almost 10 years ago! Hmmm... apparently I have some work to do. ;)
