The diet ...

Text received from roommate: Mindy, we're all going to start a diet. 15/6. 15 grams of sugar. 6 servings of whole grains.

Mindy: Who is doing this?

Roommate: All of us. As roommates.

Mindy: Yeah. No.

Even with me out, the other three roommates were still on board {well, one was. The other two were just "pretending" to be}. The roommate who actually was on board wrote this reminder on the memo board in our kitchen in the morning:

Now, not being in the know-how, I didnt know the details, but I did realize something wasn't going quite right for the roommate when I saw this later that night:


And then in true diet fashion, I found this on the board "TOMORROW" ...


Dirty darn. Another failed diet? I think so. Here's the thing peeps, take this as a lesson learned: You cannot fail a diet you never start. And I ... have never failed a diet. Ever. Just sayin'. But you, you do as you wish. Peace out.

muhahha! i am so glad that you have never failed a diet, so impressive! hummus is a most delicous dip that is great on almost everything, especially crackers and veggies. it is made of beans-chickpeas usually and therefore a great source of fiber and i love all the flavored ones like cilantro and avocado. so there you have it, that is what hummus is. {probably way more information then you wanted on hummus!}

First of all...when have YOU ever needed to go on a diet? For realz. Secondly, I do love that sentiment--you cannot fail a diet you never start. I think I will make it my life's credo. Thanks!

Haha I love it. You don't need to go on a diet. Diets don't work anyways. There you have it, straight from a dietitian.

Great insight, so true! :) So, I was just scrolling down the list of starred people and I am missing! I swear I have earned some...like the time you asked for missionary package ideas...what gives?!

diets don't work. I follow the 80/20 rule. 80% junk and 20% healthy. Or wait.... maybe it's the other way around? :)
