My YOLO Moment

The other day I was on my way to Starbucks to meet up with a friend and I had a conversation with myself.  It went like this:

Me:  Maybe I'll get a frappuccino.  I haven't had one in ages.

Me:  No, no, no.  They have waaay too much sugar and are filled with other junk.  You're trying to lose weight, remember?

Me:  But, ahhh it's so warm out here, a frappuccino sounds so refreshing.  Aw what the heck, just do it.

Me:  Welll, after all, you only live once.

Me:  Exactly.  You only live once, so live happily.  Like, how much time have I wasted thinking and worrying about not having the perfect body?  Too much.  It's not worth it.

Me:  And don't forget this is the first time you've hung out with a friend in a verrrry long time.  That's worth celebrating!

Me:  Yeah... Plus I don't want to end up being one of those people who spends their whole life obsessing about being healthy and doesn't take time to enjoy the moment, to savor the tasty things in life, to embrace happiness.  I don't want to end up being so obsessed with my body image that I can never be happy.

Me:  Well I don't think you'd ever become one of those people with how quickly you gave in to "the dark side."  It took a whole two seconds to convince yourself to get a frappuccino.

Me:  Haha I'm such a nerd.

In the end I did not order a frappuccino.  I arrived at Starbucks and I was starving.  I knew having that much sugar and caffeine on an empty stomach would make me feel sick.  So I ordered some pao de queijo and iced green tea.

HOWEVER, I've been having mini-yolo moments pretty frequently these days.  Just a few marshmallows, just a few [handfuls] M&Ms, just a bite of the milky way bar... you're only in Brazil for another week, just enjoy your time... you can exercise tomorrow...

It's really bad.

The end.

Soooo what are your YOLO moments these days???
