In Memory of the Deceased: My Self Control
Once upon a time I had self control. I was a master at discipline. I lived for self depravation - actually, that's totally untrue, but I at least followed the mantra of "moderation in all things." This wasn't the case in my younger days, but as I noticed my metabolism slowing and my days rushing by faster and faster, I developed some good habits. However, in recent times, I grew lazy and relaxed my policy. So, although I'm a day late, this Memorial Day I wish to honor (and hopefully revive) my recently deceased commitment to health and good habits. I miss you. If I had tried a little harder, you might be alive and well and even thriving within me. I could be euphoric over the things my fit body could accomplish, and I would flaunt - to my husband...and probably to my mirror - how amazing I looked naked. And, perhaps most importantly, I probably wouldn't have this awful stomache ache/sugar headache from eating WAY too many dark chocolate M&Ms before 8:45 in the morning. Hopefully next Memorial Day I can respectfully (and permanantly) mourn the death of my sweet tooth. Here's to dreaming big!
