"Stuff I Like" Sunday: Rationalizing
- Less shaving → less wear on the blade → can use each blade longer → money saved → cha-ching!
- Less shaving → less time in the shower → less water use → earth saved
- Less shaving → no unnecessary stripping of natural oils that coat the leg → less dry skin
Seriously, we'd be here all day.
Rationalizing is definitely something I tend to do a lot of - but come to think of it, it may not be something I like so much. In fact I'm pretty sure that it led to about 120 unnecessary pounds of baby weight across my three pregnancies. Because rationalizing can lead to ice cream: "I must be craving ice cream because the baby is in need of calcium. I should listen to my body, you know. And I should probably eat this entire pint because a lot of calcium is better than a little. Especially for my baby's developing bones."
Now that I'm giving this more consideration, I guess rationalization is a "frenemy" of sorts. (If you're unfamiliar with the term, a frenemy is an enemy disguised as a friend. Clever, eh?) Rationalizing your way out of going to the gym, or the dentist, or the gynecologist, is great in the present - but does you absolutely no good, and is in some cases actually harmful, in the long run.
So this particular blog post is officially changing from "Stuff I Like" to "Stuff I Might Think I Like But I, Like, Totally Don't After All."
I've got to get off this computer - a poopy diaper calls. And there's no rationalizing my way out of that one.
Happy Sunday, all! :)
