Today I had every intention of getting off of work and going to two gym classes: abs and kickboxing. I was going to bust my ass at the gym, come home to eat a salad, and pat myself on the back for still being healthy even after saying “I do.” Not letting myself go, no siree!
Instead, I came home from work, ate an entire sleeve of Thin Mints, and got into bed for the night at 6:30 pm. In between cookies, I shoveled chips and salsa into my mouth finishing half a bag of “family sized” Tostitos and half a jar of salsa. Salsa is kind of a fruit, right? It’s still kind of healthy? At one point I even ate a mint chocolate
crack rock cookie while I still had a mouth full of salsa just to see what it would be like. Please note, this all took place sitting in my living room in the dark, just to paint a clear picture. THAT is how bad my day was.
Before getting into bed, I went to my pajama drawer and pulled out a pair of yoga pants. After realizing the pants I had pulled, I neatly folded them up and put them away again. Why? Because they were my “fancy yoga pants.” It wasn’t until I put on my “non fancy yoga pants” that I realized what had just happened, and that it hadn’t even seemed bizarre to me. I awkwardly burst into hysterics standing alone in my closet and seriously contemplated the direction my life is headed.
Is this what I’ve become? I have yoga pants that I won’t wear to bed because I want to keep them clean, unwrinkled, and untainted for my next venture out into the big, bright world. Great. I’m one mullet and two missing teeth away from making the front page of People of Wal-mart.
Whatever. For now I’m going to enjoy the fact that yoga pants are considered acceptable attire to most of society. I am going to be proud of the fact that I have a different pair of yoga pants for every day of the week. After all, it could be worse.
PS does anyone actually buy yoga pants to practice yoga? My poor girls have never seen the inside of a yoga studio. They don’t even know that they are in fact yoga pants. Shhhhh don’t tell them.

AHAhahaa!! One mullet and two missing teeth away from the people at Wal-Mart! That made me laugh so much …partly because I am fascinated with what could possibly possess anyone to get a mullet… I think you are as far away from the people from walmart as they come! Always love your posts! 🙂
Thanks lady!!! Yeah the mullet thing blows my mind. I mean they KNOW that people make fun of mullets. They KNOW how trashy they look. Yet people still have them. Yikes! I’m not going to lie, I do get excited when I have a good mullet sighting. Here in North Crackalacky it’s not TOO uncommon unfortunately lol 😉
I have had many a cookie/salsa dinner! As long as you can recognize the problem, you’re still in good shape right? It’s when you see nothing wrong with an adult onesie that you have a problem…
And you’re still “I Do” fabulous even if a bad day drives you away from the gym!
Hey, I think you’re right! I’m fully aware of and admitting my problem- so I guess I’m still in a good place. The adult onesie is 100% ridiculous and would you believe that my husband owns one?!!? My mom gave it to him as a joke gift but it’s extremely comfortable and he may or may not wear it sometimes. But only when we’re watching TV hahahahah. Shhhh don’t tell anyone.
Thank you for your kind words!!
I don’t doubt that they’re comfortable! I bet it’s a slippery slope once you put one on!
Lol you’re exactly right.
Hysterical. It’s funny how a tough day can drive us into the arms of comfort food.
Seriously. This is why GS cookies are only sold once a year. America would be so much fatter! At least I would be 😀
I’m sorry you had such a bad day!! Thin mints, chips and salsa sounds like a fantastic dinner to me and I do know your yoga pant love and I adore it!! I hope you wake up with a fresh mindset and ready to kick tomorrow’s butt and then get to the gym and kick your own!! Love you!
IF you try that Oreo thing let me know, I’m not too sure of that!!
Haha I knoooow since we met you’ve probably seen me in yoga pants 90% of the time!! I hope tomorrow is better too. It better be because today was so emotionally and mentally exhausting!
The Oreo trick terrifies me hahaha but ill probably try it. May as well! 🙂
Haha! That sounds like my kind of dinner! (and I would totally taste the thin mint with the salsa “just to see” like you did….) Don’t worry, you’ve got a few years of marriage left before you can count yourself among the Walmart Peeps. LOL
Hahahah so glad I’m not alone in my food experiments! It wasn’t horrible, but it definitely wasn’t good.
And thank God I’m not Walmart status yet!! But you’re right I just need to pop out a few kids and have a few more years of marriage and ill get there. A girl can dream. 🙂
And you dinner sounds WONDERFUL!
Haha glad you approve!!
I did buy my yoga pants for doing actual yoga. But the class I took only lasted 4 sessions. Now, they are more comfy cleaning pants:)
Hahaha nice! Did you like yoga? I’ve never been able to get into it. What were your thoughts?
I really enjoy it. But I always end up signing up for very limited-time classes. And it is not something I would do alone with a DVD. So, ya, I have been to like 7 yoga classes in my life.
Haha saaame. I did power yoga one time and like that more. It’s super fast and get your heart pumping! That was more fun for me.
Oh my gosh laughing so hard right now!
Yoga pants all the way – every day! Ain’t no thang 😉
Word to your mother. I hear ya chirpin big bird.
Hey, I have a pair of those pink pj’s.
And whilst I like GS cookies as much as the next person, they are eeevvvvvvilllllll. Samosa’s, Thin Mint, oh my! I cannot buy them or I eat too many at once sitting lol.
Ok, I have been trying to get others to try this…some think I am crazy. But I know you will not think that of me because your are my friend. Right? Right? Errrr…..you are not answering.
Anyway, put a little dab of hot dog yellow mustard onto the filling of an oreo cookie (enough to swirl it around evenly on the white stuff)….put the cookie part back on…and voila! It tastes like blackberries! Seriously. Give it a try. I learnt it from my daughter.
Errr … why are you looking at me like that. Damnit, I didn’t stare when you were eating mint chocolate cookies with salsa in the dark damnit! lol
Psstt..try the mustard oreo though nod nods.
