If you surf around the internet looking at humor sites long enough, you are sure to come across this gem of a tattoo. Whenever I see it, a smile crosses my face for the sheer irony of it all.
This weekend was Easter. Due to some scheduling challenges, my family started celebrating the feast on Thursday night. We concluded with a fine dinner yesterday that my wife, who is a spectacular cook, put on. The feature of the meal was bacon wrapped, stuffed, pork tenderloin. She made it out on the grill, and it was spectacular.
Also yesterday we had a very traditional blessed food basket. It featured a variety of Slovenian sausages, smokies, and zelodec. All very tasty, and all loaded with fat.
For the weekend, I elected to stop counting points. The truth of it is I probably didn’t end up going overboard, because I moderated everything I ate, but I wanted to have a couple of days of freedom from the close counting I’ve been doing.
I chose the image above for today’s blog because I do not have any regrets about my food choices for the weekend. I celebrated with my close family, and truly enjoyed the time together. If I ate every day like I did this weekend, I’d soon be packing on the pounds. But then, this weekend wouldn’t be a celebration, it would just be Sunday. The celebration was special, and I made sure I enjoyed it fully.
This morning I answered the alarm at 3:53, and headed to the gym for a good workout. I walked 3 miles on the treadmill, then did another 15 minute on the bike. I am working on a new, weekly routine which I will write about as the week goes on.
Part of choosing the image has to do with the attitude of the person sporting the tattoo. If I showed a larger picture, you’d see a smile. Clearly the person doesn’t yet realize the error of their ways, but their confidence still shows. It’s possible that, like this ill-advised ink wearer, I am just whistling in the graveyard. It’s possible that this weekend could have set me back some. But if that is the case, then I will just reset myself and move forward. For today, I have no ragrets
