Only Human

Know what I miss? Having an accompanying playlist on my blog/s. If I could choose a song for this post, it would be the one that's been running through my mind since last night... Billy Joel's "You're Only Human".
Just like a boxer in a title fight
You got to walk in that ring all alone
You're not the only one who's made mistakes
But they're the only thing that you can truly call your own

Why has this been going through my mind? Well... last night I caved. After weeks of deprivation and daily self-denial, I finally succumbed... to a banana/blueberry smoothie and about 8 handfuls of semi-sweet chocolate chips that had somehow remained in my cupboard. And you know what? ... It was good. But interestingly enough... I believe I actually enjoyed the smoothie more than the chocolate chips. 

I fully expected to pay the price first thing this morning, but so far... so good. Though, it may be something that I pay more gradually for. I don't know. I just know that last night... it was worth it.

I've resolved to do better today. Back to the usuals. The basics. And starting on my L-Glutamine and heavy duty probiotics. 

Today is a new day.

Don't forget your second wind
Wait in your corner until that breeze blows in

And tomorrow is, too.


We're only human, we're supposed to make mistakes

... Right, Billy?


  1. Doesn't sound like that was TOO terrible of a thing to succumb to. And today you were back to the zucchini chips.

    1. Yeah, hopefully, it wasn't too detrimental. But still... it's a slippery slope!
