The 3 F’s of Life

Spring officially started on the 20th of March, but here in Seattle, we’ve been gypped of our spring! For over a month, we’ve continued to feel the blistering cold of winter. It wasn’t until recently, that we finally reached 60 degrees. Blame it on the “warm” weather for pulling the crazy out of me, but it’s May and I realize I need to get my act together. Time to face my 3 F’s of life: food, Facebook, and flakes.

1) Food

Food is my biggest weakness, especially those saucy, savory dishes of goodness. I can out eat a lot of people, but I can’t keep it up and look this good. I’m sizing down my portions, making healthier choices, and resisting peer pressure. (Yeah, that’s right. You finish that last falafel.)

2) Facebook

It’s great that I’ve been able to reconnect with so many old friends, but Facebook allows me to see too much. Seeing friends’ pictures of their latest adventures, statuses of their great weekend, and everything in between is driving me bonkers. I feel like I’m missing out when I know darn straight that I’m not. I’m not reading anymore Facebook statuses and I’m limiting how often I log on.

3) Flakes

I’m like the kid that’s told not to touch the hot plate, but who does it anyways. I keep trying to plan things with friends but nothing ever happens. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I keep getting burned. Real friends will make time and make things happen. I’m not putting anymore effort into making plans with repeat offenders.

Not sounding so crazy after all? We all face these 3 F’s of life and it’s easy to blame others when we fall off the wagon, but we ultimately choose how we handle these situations. So if you’re not happy with where you’re at then make a change. What are yall doing to keep yourself in check?
