I Don’t Hafta

On Sundays, I never want to work out.

And I don’t hafta.


When the weather is crappy, sometimes I don’t want to do anything except read a few novels and order buffalo wings.

And, you know what?  I don’t hafta.


And some days, I don’t want a square meal.

And guess what?  I don’t always hafta eat one!

Sometimes I also think how ironic it is that square meals are generally considered to be a protein, a starch and a vegetable (at least in my universe).  Shouldn’t that be a triangular meal?

Or does the cocktail count as the fourth side?  If there’s any good left in the world, it does.

Anyhoo, it’s not very often that I don’t have much of an appetite.  Unless I’m sick, of course.  But even then, I’m usually looking forward to my next meal.

For some reason, last night I wasn’t in the mood for much.  Specifically, I wasn’t in the mood for any kind of starch.  Strange, and wildly uncharacteristic of me, but true.

I was dining with my parents last night (which sounds much more civilized than being honest an admitting that I was mooching off them) and suggested that we skip the potato/rice/pasta/french fries/chips for the night.

Surprisingly, they were amenable to the idea.

I roasted up some brussels, butterflied some chicken breasts and sprinkled them with some seasoned salt and my dad threw them on the grill,

and I fulfilled the ONLY craving I had been having all day.

I blame the craving on RhodeyGirl after reading one of her Tweets, by the way.

She had mentioned that she was craving honey mustard and I instantly adopted the same craving.  A sympathy craving, if you will.

I find that I like my honey mustard best with a combo of equal parts yellow and Dijon mustard and 2 parts honey.

It tastes well balanced to me.  And we’re all about balance, right?

I didn’t even miss the carbs.  Maybe it’s because brussels sprouts are pretty starchy.  Or because the honey mustard seemed pretty decadent.

But I’m not going to overthink this one.

Know why?

‘Cause I don’t hafta.

  1. Do you actually do the insanity videos?? I’m so intrigued by them but that guy scares the bejesus out of me, much like Billy Blank did. But I’ve heard it’s awesome…
    And ps- cocktails actually are the 4th element to a perfectly square meal. True story.

    • Yup, I’ve done the whole Insanity program. Don’t fear Shaun T- he’s awesome. And foxy. 🙂 You should definitely bite the bullet and get it if you’re thinking about it!

  2. Carbs used to be a requirement. And I still prefer having a little somethin’ somethin’ like bread at every meal (no matter how big or small). But gosh darnit, somedays I’m totally fine without. No matter what my mother says…

  3. I totally agree with your cocktail suggestion!
    And I too am reading that book ! I started it a few months ago and I haven’t been able to finish it due to school work… But your post actually reminded me of that fact, and I think I’m gonna go ahead and read a couple of chapters instead of the millions of articles I have to read for school 😛

  4. Ok, now I want honey mustard too. Its been too long since I made it last.

    I don’t know if I ever eat square meals anymore (unless my moms cooking). Usually I just throw vegetables and beans in a dish and eat them with whatever topping I have. I’m good with that. 🙂
