Life in general is going well. The sun is shining and the weather people are calling for warmer temperatures soon. I was fine when I woke up this morning. I even got to sleep in a bit until 7:15.
My inbox was full of nice comments from lots of different readers of this very blog, and no one on facebook made one of those cheesy feel-good quotes their status update. (I'm not sure why I hate that so much, but I do. It irks me.)
The best I can figure is that I must have seen myself getting out of the shower and promptly shoved that horrifying sight into my subconscience. Clearly, not far enough though.
99% percent of my bad days can be attributed to two things.
1. Seeing myself fresh out of the shower.
2. hmm, wait...no. Nope. I guess there is just one thing to blame. See above.
Anyway- usually, I have a system. I will share it. It sooooo interesting. (eye roll)
Step one-Turn off shower
Step two-Open shower curtain, letting damp air escape leaving no chance that bathroom mirror will be fog-less
Step three-cover as much of body as possible with 'bath' towel that is roughly the size of a dinner napkin. Possibly smaller.
Step four- Walk directly past mirror as quickly as possible, eyes averted, exit bathroom into mirrorless bedroom.
Step five- Continue happily with day.
See, this way, I still know I am a chubby bunny but I don't have to be visually presented with just how cold and hard that truth really is.
Ignorance is bliss.
This morning, my
Mirror removal? No. I do use it to make sure I don't have things in my nose/teeth before I go into public.
Discontinue showering? Ew. I do not want to be chubby AND smelly.
Robotic towel delivery? Interesting...but not cost effective.
Lose weight? Yeah yeah. I'm on it.
For now, I guess I will just have to put all of my positive morning juju into making sure my towel is where is should be.
