Where's My Bagel?

Friday, January 31, 2014

Do you ever argue with yourself? I've been finding that I argue with myself a lot lately. For instance, this morning's argument while I was getting ready for work went something like this...

Hungry D: I'm hungry!

Healthy D: Me too! Let's pack some oatmeal to make at work for breakfast.

Hungry D: Phooey [the actual word used was not fit for public forum] on oatmeal, I want our favorite Pesto Cheddar Bagel with lots of cream cheese!

Healthy D: But we've been doing so good, you don't want to throw that all away do you? Oatmeal is better for us and it will keep us satisfied longer.

Hungry D: Did I stutter? I want a bagel. Yes we have been good, we can afford to be bad every now and again.

Healthy D: In a perfect world, yes, but you know our history. We do good for a while and have some success and then we start thinking we can stray from the plan and before you know it we're right back where we started.

Hungry D: Why do you hate fun?

Healthy D: Oh good grief. I tell you what, I'll compromise. If we pack our own reduced fat cream cheese and only eat half of the bagel, then we can have it. Deal?

Hungry D: Deal!

Healthy D: Just don't come crying to me when you're hungry an hour later.

So I stopped at the bagel shop this morning...they no longer carry my favorite bagel. Neither D was pleased. But at least that's one argument we won't have to have again.

    I can so relate to this blog! I argue with myself all the time.. sometime more obviously than I'd like. I've literally put something into a shopping cart at the grocery store, gone a few steps, said "NO" out loud, turned around and put whatever it was back. Do I get weird stares? You bet. Do I care? Not so much. We do what we gotta do.

    It's awesome that you came up with a good compromise that worked for all of you. I'm sorry that they don't make your bagel anymore, though! I hate that. Be it bagels, tv shows, whatever.. stinks when our favorite things get canceled. The good thing is that it gives you room to build a new routine and a healthier favorite.

    Have a great weekend, my friend!
