And since I had a couple of funny realizations tonight, I figured I could give it a try.
Here are my top ten reasons why self-care takes precedence tonight:
10. Because I consistently fail to do this, and hide my laziness under doing things for others.
9. Because Red Vines are 3 points for 4, and I ate 3 before I even bothered to check.
8. Because my husband is gone and I have the house to myself.
7. Because my friend who I was going to hang out with tonight has another friend over.
6. Because I demolished some of my weight loss progress over the past 2 months.
5. Because I got EA Sports Active for the Wii thanks to a great and generous friend.
4. Because of EA Active, I can work out without leaving the house.
3. Because I am not leaving the house, the "dress code" is much more relaxed.
2. Because if I run out of water here, I can get more without begging quarters off of strangers.
1. Because the only one checking me out or judging me is my dog.
