On Tuesday, I was in the break-room, heating my STEEL CUT OATS, with APPLES and WALNUTS in the microwave, filling up my 5 c. WATER bottle.
Some of my co-workers were filling up on coffee, Mountain Dew, donuts, poptarts, McDonalds...nothing wrong with that...I am just saying...
Here's the New Years Resolution conversation that took place. Keep in mind, this is several different people talking, mostly men:
What's your New Years Resolution this year Trish?
Hers is always to stop smoking.
I didn't know she smoked.
Oh. [head scratch]
I TRY to explain my 5 MORE MORE MORE goals...
I will eat MORE fruits and vegetables
I will eat MORE healthy fats
I will eat MORE protein for breakfast
I will eat MORE whole grains
I will drink MORE water
That's ALL you do... EAT EAT EAT. [I eat SMALL portions every 2-3 hours]
That is too easy.
Why do you always pick something that you KNOW you can do?
[I think this was the exact moment that I thought my head was going to explode]
Do you make resolutions that you KNOW you can't/won't keep? Do you make the same ones over and over without having a plan in place to make them work for you?
She got that from those SMARTPEOPLE on the internet.
It is SPARKPEOPLE, not SMARTPEOPLE.
Oh yeah, I have seen her do jumping jacks at the copier.
[another explosion in my head moment]
I exit, saying:
Enjoy your breakfast.
[It is difficult to have an intelligent conversation when you are not speaking with SMARTPEOPLE]
So I guess I will be doing kickboxing at the copier now.
