Last night all I wanted was something.
Something chocolatey. Something gooey. Something sweet. Something I could just grab and mindlessly eat while vegging on the couch.
Why? Why? Why?
“For every effect there is a root cause. Find and address the root cause rather than try to fix the effect.” -Celestine Chua
I ended up with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s in my hand instead of finding the root cause of the craving.
Honestly, I kind of knew what the root cause was but I didn’t care. In the moment all I wanted was to forget the stress, throw away the to-do, ignore the messy house, relax on the couch and dig into a pint of ice cream.
And that’s exactly what happened.
I’m not mad at myself and I don’t think I ate anything “bad,” I’m just making a mental note to do a little more work on finding the root cause before asking the husband to pick me up a pint of ice cream on his way home.
Tomorrow I’m running the half in the Baltimore Running Festival. I’m a little nervous considering I haven’t really trained. It was a spur of the moment decision since I felt the need for a little inspiration in the running department.
Events always inspire me, regardless of how well I do. My plan is to bring the goPro and have fun with it.
