Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Week 14

Posted by Edward Ernest | Feb 17, 2018 | Body Image, Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | 0 |

Website growing pains and learning experiences were the themes of the week………. And a possible bad influence.

We wanted to add an interview component to the website, and we got a little ahead of ourselves. None of the interviews that we shot will ever see the light of day. EVER! We really had no solid focus before doing the interviews, and they ended up being something that we laughed hysterically at after we were done.

Trying to edit an interview with someone that was just rambling on proved to be impossible yet laugh inducing at the very same time. Everyone took turns trying to fix the unfixable until we couldn’t take listening to the same voices over and over again. In the end, we decided to scrap the interviews with a plan on returning to a video component when we actually had better focus.

The only money wasted was on the pizza. Which comes to the second part of bad influences. We needed to feed everyone, and the easiest thing to do was to get a big pizza. That was just a bad idea for me though. I ate so many pieces which was the first problem. However, problem two was something an interview guest planted into my head.

This specific guest was a gym rat and beyond fit. She was ripped from head to toe. And she said that she ate pizza all the time as it was her protein fix. I looked at her and said to myself, she eats pizza all the time, and she’s that ripped? Maybe I could eat a little more pizza if I worked out harder too? And that’s where my mind went racing.

Unfortunately, my mind didn’t just race. I ate pizza three out the next four days and was beside myself with disappointment because I obviously did not put in that extra gym time. Also, I know that pizza isn’t great to eat all the time anyway. It was like our interview guests words were like a free pass to break all my habits because she said it worked for her. But in reality, was this person even telling me the truth? I didn’t even know her before the day, but I was fully on board with her pizza lifestyle? Yeah, I’m brilliant!

Ugh! I’m pretty upset that I jumped on that train. All it took were a few words, and I slid right off the wagon. It was that easy. It’s kinda scary how little it took for a bad habit to ease its way back into my life.

I’m not sure where I go from here. Do I become a little easier on myself with food, or do I stay strict? I’m not sure what’s sustainable.

I guess I’m still a work in progress and will figure it out as I go along.

Anyone have suggestions?


I’ve eaten pizza, and it’s so heavy and delicious in my stomach, and I can’t get up.
