To Get What you Love, You may have to face what you Hate

Mint chocolate chip ice cream just may be one of the best things ever created on this planet.


I can remember going to Baskin Robbins in Lexington with Lisa E. and getting two scoops.  I longed for a Baskin Robbins in Jackson.  I had to settle for Breyers, which is pretty good, but it's not green and it tastes a little different.

Despite the freezing cold temperatures today, I decided that I wanted that ice cream.

Needed it, actually...

except I didn't. 

I was tired when I got home from work and really didn't feel the treadmill in my future, but I'm doing a running plan (I know... again...) and it called for me to run 0.5 miles (I know, that's not much...) so I forced myself to get on the treadmill.

After all, 0.5 miles is a piece of cake, right?

Or it's at least worth a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream...

Two miles later, I hopped off and fixed a bowl.  It was delicious, just as I remembered.

 In my resolution to get healthier this year, I didn't say a word about dieting.  Or lifestyle eating changes... because I'm a picky eater and I KNOW I'll fail, at least during basketball season, where 99.9% of my meals are either eaten in my car, in the gym, or in my car on the way to the gym.

I did, however, resolve to move more, and I'm doing that.

So I didn't stress out about that ice cream.

I just convinced myself that because I loved that ice cream, I had to face that which I hate... the dreadmill.

I'm learning to grudgingly admit some respect for it. 

Tonight, at least...
