My favorite day of the week is Wednesday. Some people call it hump day. It's the day stuck between the weekend past and weekend to come. For me, I call it "Fall off the wagon Wednesday".
It starts out like any other normal day - I get up, I run (today was 12 miles), eat breakfast, and go to work and spend a day getting work stuff done. By the end of the work day my anticipation level is almost redlining with delight - because on almost every Wednesday night I go to my friends house and we eat dinner. And then usually we go for a 1/2 hour walk, have a cup of tea, we chat, sometimes we watch a movie. We hang out and it is good. And then, it happens: we fall off the wagon:
IT'S TIME FOR DESSERT!!!!!!!
Some weeks for dessert we have fruit, last week it was strawberries - with heavy whipping cream. Other weeks it has been cake, or pie, or brownies. Ice cream is often included - and let me tell you - it is good to fall off the wagon into a messy bowl of deliciousness.
I get to bring the dessert most nights - tonight I am actually making it and it is peach cobbler and I can't wait. There will likely be ice cream involved also. I'm drooling a little thinking about it.
It helps a little to take a break from what is going on in my life - not just with running and training hard for Pikes Peak - and I think it keeps me sane. I am eating quite well and responsibly for every other meal of the week - and feeling quite healthy and my fitness level is improving. It's a healthy wagon to be on.
But in just a few hours I am belly flopping off this wagon into a bowl of awesome. I can't wait.
