In an effort to get back in shape, I’ve been working out pretty hard the past few days, and I’ve had an epiphany that has given me all the motivation I need: The only thing that has been keeping me from the body I want is pure, unadulterated LAZINESS, and that is pathetic. So since I don’t want to be pathetic, I’ve decided to commit to this once and for all, working out (HARD) regularly and eating well to get the most awesome body I’ve ever had. I also found out that according to those height/weight/BMI charts I’m about 6 pounds overweight, so there’s more motivation right there. The problem: writing a blog based on food, mostly unhealthy food at that, while being careful about my diet might be a challenge. I’ll continue cooking of course, I just have to be careful not to go overboard on my own creations, like I did with the guava pastries I made a couple days ago (before my epiphany mind you). Christmas dinner is also coming up…I’m making a coconut flan and a pecan pie for the first time. There’s the real test of my self-discipline; I love holiday dinners. I can do it though. Si se puede, right Obama?
