Sally in the Zen

Confessions of a Befuddled Zen Buddhist

A Conversation with Myself

So I’m in the middle of having a very private conversation…with myself.

Self:  So don’t you think you should start going back to the gym?

Me:  I’m just too exhausted when I get home nowadays that I just don’t have the energy to do it right now.

Self:  You’re nothing but a big excuse, you know that?

Me:  (feeling guilty)  But it’s true!  Not the excuse part, but me being exhausted!  I’ll get back on the wagon soon!

Self:  You’re all talk and no action, Sally.  You should be ashamed of yourself!  You’ve let yourself go for months now and you’re indulging on guilty pleasures that you would’ve never considered when you were all-about-the-exercise before!  You used to be a gym nut! 

Me:  ummm…speaking of nuts…

Self:  Well?  What do you have to say for yourself?

Me:  Let me think about it over a nice slice of banana nut bread that I just made.

So who won?

The banana nut bread or Self?

Self or the banana nut bread?

Bread:  100

Self:  -100

Because there’s no more bread in the house and yes, I’m going back to the gym this week carrying that banana nut bread on my butt.

Thanks for asking.
